Presented by University of Chichester Arts and Charity Development Joint Honours Students
After the success of ‘Nunsense’, the Musical Theatre and Arts Development students are throwing off their habits and sliding on feather headpieces to raise funds for your local sight-loss charity 4Sight Vision Support. Combined with Musical Theatre Joint Honours students we are proud to bring you ‘Copacabana’. Full of showgirls and tantalizing rhythms, this show will be a great ‘Night on the Town’.
The story follows aspiring songwriter, Stephen. His imagination takes him back to the 1940s as he creates a story surrounding an ambitious young singer Lola Lamar who arrives in New York City from Tulsa hoping to become a star. She lands a position at the famous Copacabana Nightclub, "the hottest club north of Havana", and strives to become a 'Copa Girl' dancer with the help of the bartender, Tony Forte.
