Following the sold out show in May, we reprised our “Soldiers in Petticoats” cabaret at the Pheasantry on Sunday 5th August. This time, the lovely Lara Denning (Matilda the Musical, Ruthless, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) was back in tip top health and glorious voice to headline the show. She treated the audience to an amazing set; including a lesser known Julie Andrews number: Cole Porter’s “The Physician” (performed by Julie in the 1968 film Star). Other highlights included a hilarious number from Pippa Cleary & Jake Brunger’s musical The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 called “New Best Friend” and “All that Matters Now” from Finding Neverland.
We were delighted to play to to a full house again and raise £93.88 for Cancer Research UK from our audience collection and donating 10% of profits from ticket sales to the charity.
Watch our rendition of “Sister Suffragette/Run the World” arranged by musical director, Matthew Samer. Singers (L-R): Rebecca Ridout, Lucy Clough, Rosie Williamson, Elise Allanson and Joanna Thorne with Matthew Samer on piano.
