Emma Kane and Ollie Rosenblatt present an evening of musical comedy cabaret in aid of Target Ovarian Cancer. All proceeds go to the charity, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019 and is the national ovarian cancer working to save lives and help women diagnosed live their lives to the full, wherever they live in the UK.
Miss Hope Springs will be live at the piano – a comedy cabaret chanteuse 'recovering showgirl', down on her luck and highly-medicated, she'll be singing songs from her all-original repertoire and recounting tales from her Ritz-to-the-pits showbiz life. You'll hear hysterical stories interspersed with songs about her various paramours from Liberace to Barry Manilow, and she spills the beans about what it's like to live with her husband Irving and his hairdresser pal Carlos in a camper van in Dungeness. Still wearing the sequinned pantsuit and marabou boa she was wearing when she left the Pink Pelican Casino in 1972, Hope brings you her unique blend of finger snapping pop, romantic rhumbas, sassy bossa novas and smouldering torch songs in this unique 'laugh-out-loud, move-you-to-tears show'. Join Hope as she opens her battered 'suitcase of dreams' to share magical musical mementos.
All proceeds from this evening will go to Target Ovarian Cancer, registered charity numbers 1125038 (England and Wales) and SC042920 (Scotland).
