Cole Porter’s classic feel good musical, High Society, is coming to town in a glittering new production by the Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company.

High Society is based on the Philadelphia story and the 1956 MGM film musical starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and 
Frank Sinatra. Featuring hit songs including True Love , You’re Sensational, Well, Did You Evah! and the unforgettable Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

After directing the award-winning Fiddler on the Roof last year, Martyn Harrison is back and the show promises to be full of fun and vitality. Paul Garner is the musical director, and again brings his expertise and musical talent to the company.

The show runs from March 10-14 and tickets, between £10-12, are available either online at saffrontickets.com or from the Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre.
