We’re happy to advertise events in which our members are taking part, provided that they have some general musical or theatrical interest, and to showcase shows and concerts being run by other local societies. All we need is to have information and an image, and preferably also a web link.
If you have an event to share, please email Martin.
Join Charity Hope Valentine as she searches for love in the strangest places in New York in the Swinging Sixties. Charity is a dancer for money, as unlucky in love as she is in life, but ever hopeful of realising her dreams of romance, a comfortable life and escaping the seedy Fandango Ballroom. Featuring the enduring musical classics Big Spender, The Rhythm of Life, There’s Gotta be Something Better Than This and If My Friends Could See Me Now, Sweet Charity is packed with hilarious characters, stunning dance routines and a whole lot of heart.
Susanne Horsburgh would love you to support her in Edinburgh Music Theatre’s production which plays at Edinburgh’s Church Hill Theatre on Tuesday–Saturday 16–20 April each evening at 7.30pm and with a 2.30pm matinée on the Saturday. Click the image to go to the EMT Facebook page.
