All aboard for the roaring 20s! Setting out for Europe, our heroine, a doughty American spinster, can't believe her luck when she embarks on her cruise and finds herself in the company of a feast of famous faces. However, it turns out that Noël Coward, Gertrude Stein and George Bernard Shaw, to name but a few, aren't necessarily the friendliest of shipmates.
Music: Noël Coward
Freely adapted and orchestrated by Hershy Kay
Choreography: Joe Layton
Designs: John Conklin
Lighting: Peter Teigen
To complete this wonderful programme the company will perform some of its favourite moments from some of its most popular ballets, including Giselle.
