Programme Notes:
Presenting a romance, set aboard a cruise ship in the swinging 3O's, where the ladies prove that the age of elegance, glamour and enchantment is not dead ... well, not quite anyway.
Constance, sailing to Naples to marry Beauregard meets up with childhood sweetheart, Noel. As Beauregard is also secretly on board, the ensuing love triangle develops on the voyage, inevitable shipwreck, sojourn on a desert island and eventual rescue.
Circumstances almost beyond their control threaten to wreck the evening's entertainment but the ladies and Gordon, in true Farndale form, soar above such mundane matters to present some catchy numbers and a stunning underwater sequence!
Lorraine, Director.
