Platinum Platitudes

A huge “Well Done” to the Platinum Review performers and crew. It was a fabulous show, and so many of the audience said lovely things in praise.  Some even said it was the best thing they had seen at the commem. Hopefully we can post some photos and video soon.

Wadhurst Dramatic Club presents ‘Way Out West in a Dress’ – January 2016

 

Dear Supporters, do you remember how much you enjoyed Wadhurst Dramatic Club’s sell out production of the comedy musical, Flapper, in 2014? If you do, then you’re bound to want to buy tickets for the next musical offering – Way Out West in a Dress – from director and choreographer Kay Sasada and musical director Martin Steadman.

The action takes place in wild West USA, where young actor Clarence Rawlins’s falsetto voice isn’t the only ‘false’ thing about him after he gets himself and his acting troupe into something of a calamity in Lucky Lady, Nevada. Discovering that he has misread his Great-Great Aunt’s handwritten will, Clarence learns he has not inherited a profitable saloon, as expected, but instead the Lucky Lady Salon, a beauty parlour! Flat broke, Clarence has no choice but to raid the costume trunk and transform himself into the head hair stylist of the small town’s only salon.

Way Out West in a Dress is filled with hilarious characters (as well as and some downright Baddies too!), uproarious musical numbers and puns galore. This western comedy will have you laughing, toe tapping & ‘yeehawing’ the whole way through. The perfect remedy for a post-Christmas ‘pick me up’ and fun for all the family, be sure not to miss out! Evening performances will be on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd, Friday 29th and Saturday 30th January, with matinee shows on Sunday 24th and Saturday 30th January. Tickets go on sale in December at Southern Cross Travel in the Old Library on Wadhurst High Street, or online at www.wadhurstdramaticclub.co.uk. Tickets cost £8 for adults, £5 for children or why not buy a family ticket (up to 3 children) for £25. Group ticket sales are also available – please call 01892 783384 for more information on group prices.
