Cole Porter’s timeless classic High Society will be at the Congress Theatre from June 18-22 in a dazzling new production from the acclaimed producers of The King and I.
The cast includes Michael Praed (Robin of Sherwood and The Sound of Music) who stars as Dexter Haven, the show marks something of a home coming for Michael, who was educated at Eastbourne College.
High Society also features Marilyn Cutts (founding member of Fascinating Aida) as Margaret Lord, Teddy Kempner (Acorn Antiques The Musical and RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby) as Uncle Willie, Daniel Boys (Any Dream Will Do) as Mike Connor with Sophie Bould (The Sound of Music) as Tracy Lord.
Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings in an attempt to try and win her back.
A further twist arrives in the form of charming reporter Mike Connor who falls instantly for Tracy, and she for him.
Adapted from the hit 1956 film of the same name, this sparkling production proves Porter’s classic musical style and fizzing wit will always be in fashion.
