Get ready for the musical event of the season as Cole Porter’s timeless classic, High Society, skips into town, in a dazzling new production from the acclaimed producers of The King and I.

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 that 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!
