Further info

Music & lyrics by Cole Porter- Book by Arthur Kopit  - Additional lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Based on the play "The Philadelphia Story" by Philip Barry
Also based on the Turner Entertainment Co. motion picture "High Society"

Michael Praed (Robin of Sherwood & The Sound of Music) stars as Dexter Haven, 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. As the day of the wedding draws closer we're left guessing which groom the bride will choose!

Adapted from the hit 1956 film, which starred screen legends Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra, High Society bubbles with a host of beautiful ballads including  'True Love', 'You're Sensational' and the unforgettable 'Well, Did You Evah!' this uplifting and sparkling production proves Porter's classic musical style and fizzing wit will always be in fashion.

So prepare yourself for a glorious night of vintage Hollywood as you're invited to the wedding of the year, and what a swell party it is gonna be!
