Considered by many to be one of the great classic musicals of all time! Based on the 1956 movie starring Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly, itself taken from Phillip Barry’s ’The Philadelphia Story’ featuring that other iconic trio, Cary Grant, James Stewart and Katharine Hepburn as Tracy Lord, HIGH SOCIETY comes from theatrical DNA of the highest order!
Set among the idle-rich on a sumptuous Long Island estate, the show revolves around the armour-plated Tracy Lord’s recognition of her vulnerability and realisation on the eve of her wedding, that she is about to marry the wrong man! Famous for its sharp, comic dialogue, great Cole Porter songs like Let’s Misbehave, True Love and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, plus thrilling choreography makes this a party you will want to attend!
Musical Director, Bobby Delaney, Choreographer, Drew Varley and Director, Karen Howard.

HIGH SOCIETY is a party to which you are all invited and don’t forget to bring a friend or two!
