AFTER the success of Nunsense, Chichester University students are throwing off their habits and sliding on feather headpieces to return to the Alexanadra Theatre to present Barry Manilow’s new musical, Copacabana.
Full of showgirls and tantalising rhythms, this show at the Regis Centre, will be a great ‘night on the town’, presented by students on the musical theatre and arts development course combined with those studying musical theatre joint honours students.
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.
Music is by Barry Manilow with lyrics by Bruce Sussman and Jack Feldman and the book was written by the three of them.
Sponsored by the University of Chichester, all profit raised from ticket sales will go towards charity 4Sight Vision Support.
