Carnival of the Animals
15 July, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Lytchett Minster School presents “Not in Front of the Waiter” (or “Under the Aspidistra”), adapted by Colin Graham and Vilem Tausky, and Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals”.
The performance will take place in the beautiful setting of the Secret Garden (or the theatre if wet). The PTA will be providing strawberries and cream and (non-alcoholic) punch during the interval. Both items last under 30 minutes each, with the performance finishing by 8.20pm.
In the first half, the school orchestra will perform Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animal”, a musical depiction of creatures such as lions, elephants, swans and beginner pianists. The second half consists of an hilarious short operetta with music by Offenbach, starring five of our most accomplished musical theatre students. The action is set in a private room of a Paris restaurant in 1890. Two couples have arranged to meet for a romantic dinner. All are married, but not to their dining partner. The mysterious waiter then makes a shocking revelation…
Don’t miss what promises to be a truly wonderful summer evening’s entertainment. Pre-booking online will guarantee a comfortable chair near the front (with tickets available on the door for those happy to take pot-luck as to where they sit!). Tickets cost £5.00 (£3.00 for concessions) and will not be issued in advance – the names of those who have pre-paid will be checked on the door.
