Lent Week 8 to Week 9
Think sparkling; think shimmering; think splendour, and we're in the world of the burlesque dancer....welcome to Gypsy! Mama Rose, the eternal stage mother, is determined to achieve her daughters the fame she never managed. She abandons her home to push her daughters to live the lives of roaming vaudeville performers, driving them forward to further and greater fame and acclaim. But when Herbie, their agent, mistakenly books them into a strip joint, the fame one daughter achieves goes far beyond Rose's original intentions... Gypsy is based on the memoirs of the burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee, and provides a fascinating cocktail of glitz, dance, surprise and intimacy that will make the Amateur Dramatic Club's Lent Term Musical a treat to behold. Featuring songs such as 'You Gotta Get a Gimmick', 'Let Me Entertain You' and 'Everything's Coming Up Roses', Gypsy promises to dazzle and stun. Following on from the hugely successful Cabaret, 42nd Street, and Copacabana, once again, welcome to the world of showbiz and glamour!
