Cole Porter’s unforgettable songs will ring out at the Devonshire Park Theatre next week when High Society opens.

EODS present this feel-good show based on the play The Philadelphia Story from May 25-30, nightly at 7.45pm with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm.

The story unfolds as the second wedding of socialite Tracy Samantha Lord is interrupted by the arrival of her ex-husband and two gossip magazine reporters.

The four main characters are played by Phil Poole as C.K. Dexter, Tracy by Hannah Poynter, Liz Imbrie by Tiffany Lynn, Mike Connor by Dave Nicholles and Dina Lord by Catriona Houston.

Her last appearance with the society was as Mrs Bedwin in the youth section’s production of Oliver! Her mother Margaret and father Seth Lord are played by Avril Francis-Bell and Brian Ayres, while Clem Jackson (Uncle Willie), James Cooper (George Kitteridge) and Dave Riddington (Sidney Kidd) complete the principal cast. Under direction by Keith Smith, choreography by Teresa Smith with musical direction in the hands of Carl Greenwood, the show runs from May 26-30 tickets are £16 and can be booked on 412000.
