The film classic that we all love comes to life on stage, complete with Lux Soap ads AND live sound effects.
Who doesn’t LOVE Casablanca? There’s a reason why it’s on every ‘greatest’ list when people think of films. Here’s a chance to see it on stage, refreshed and reimagined, complete with advertisements for the sponsor Lux Soap (after all, that’s the beginnings of the term ‘soap opera’) and a sound effects operator creating the sound effects live as well. The story never loses its heart, the Nazi occupation remains the ever present danger provided to the star-crossed lovers, Rick and Ilsa, and Ilsa has to make the choice of her life, between her real love and the man she respects and admires, her husband! It’s going to be an evening of romance and intrigue and FUN as well.
Round up the usual suspects….they won’t want to miss this!
