'Wedding of the year' at theatre

THEATREGOERS are invited to the wedding of the year — and what a swell party it’s going to be!

With music and lyrics by the legendary composer and songwriter Cole Porter, High Society opens at the Mill at Sonning on Thursday (November 24).

Long Island socialite Tracy Lord is planning her lavish high society nuptials with 700 guests and oceans of champagne.

But who exactly will be the groom? Her fiancé — the self-made but boring George? Or her glamorous and dangerous ex-husband Dexter, who turns up on the scene determined to win her back? Or maybe tabloid news reporter Mike Connor, who has been sent to cover the wedding and who falls head over heels in love with the captivating Miss Lord.

Porter’s classic feelgood musical is based on The Philadelphia Story and the 1956 film starring Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly.
