Present Company will be staging Grand Hotel – The musical, at Buxton Opera House from Thursday August 22 to Saturday August 24 and then at Derby Theatre from August 29-31.
The action takes place in the Grand Hotel, Berlin, in 1928. Hearts are won, lives are lost or begun and the music never stops for a grand parade of guests and staff whose worlds briefly inter-twine.
Among the eccentric hotel guests are: a cynical doctor, who observes all; a fading prima ballerina; a fatally ill Jewish bookkeeper, spending his final days in luxury; a baron, young, handsome, noble and broke; an honest businessman forced to turn crooked; a typist dreaming of Hollywood success.
The show’s many memorable songs include: Love Can’t Happen, Fire And Ice, We’ll Take a Glass Together, I Waltz Alone, Bonjour Amour, Roses At The Station and Grand Waltz.
Pictured above is Alice Hands playing Flaemmchen, the typist determined to be a movie star.
All shows are at 7.30pm with 2.30pm matinees on each of the Saturdays. For more information check out the Present Company Facebook page. Tickets from http://www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk and http://www.derbytheatre.co.uk
