George Edkins from Harpenden Light Operatic Society
Tonight Danny spoke to George Edkins from the Harpenden Light Operatic Society about their upcoming show 'A Grand Night for Singing'. The show will be packed with classics by the great Rodgers and Hammerstein but with fresh new muscial arrangements by Fred Wells.
The show will transport you from the fun and frolics of Oklahoma to South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music to name but a few. However, what makes the show such fun and so entertaining is that all of the songs take on a new meaning and are set in a different context from the original productions. This includes 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' originally from musical The Sound of Music but for a modern audience will be sung from the point of view of a lovestruck teenager about the object of his affection
'A Grand Night for Singing' will be on from Tuesday 27th March to Saturday 31st March at the Harpenden Public Halls. For more information or to book tickets visit: http://www.harpenden-operatic.co.uk/
