An evening with Melanie Parr

Well what a pleasant surprise!
Melanie Parr Hosted a One Woman Show at Garboldisham Village Hall on 27th November.  A really entertaining evening beautifully aimed at the ‘Musicals’ audience full of songs, anecdotes and memories of 60’s and 70’s London’s West End theatre and some of its lovable characters.

The audience of over 100 people were held spell bound by Melanie relating her experiences in first getting and then growing into the part of Gretel in Rogers & Hammerstein’s production of The Sound of Music.

“Characters were really brought alive by the use of original costumes and life like images” commented one audience member during the break, “Well worth the money” commented another “ It was just like inviting Melanie into our sitting Room for a chat” 

The Management Committee have expressed an interest in having Melanie return to enthral us with more tales of the theatre.
