The all-singing all-dancing extravaganza 42nd Street – the Broadway musical about Broadway – is being staged by Long Eaton Operatic Society this spring.
Aspiring performer Peggy Sawyer (Helen Perry, right) arrives in the Big Apple and gets work in the chorus line of the newest Broadway show from famous producer Julian Marsh (Dave O’Neal, centre). But just before opening night, leading lady Dorothy Brock (Claire Collishaw, left) breaks her ankle. Can the show go on? Who can replace the star at such short notice?
The show is such a popular classic that it is also returning to London’s West End this spring, but save yourself the travel and join the award-winning society as they bring all the glitz and glamour of Broadway to Long Eaton.
The show is on at Trent College, from April 4-8, at 7.30pm. More details at http://www.longeatonoperatic.com
