Long Eaton Operatic Society is putting on the all-singing all-dancing extravaganza 42nd Street - the Broadway musical about Broadway.

It can be seen in the May Hall at Long Eaton’s Trent College from April 4-8.

Aspiring performer Peggy Sawyer (Helen Perry) arrives in the Big Apple and gets work in the chorus line of the newest Broadway show from famous producer Julian Marsh (Dave O’Neal).

But just before opening night, leading lady Dorothy Brock (Claire Collishaw) breaks her ankle. Can the show go on? Who can replace the star at such short notice?

The score takes in many Broadway standards, including Dames, We’re In the Money, Lullaby of Broadway, and Forty-Second Street. The show is such a popular classic that it is returning to London’s West End this Spring, but save yourself the travel and join us as NODA award-winning Long Eaton Operatic Society bring all the glitz and glamour of Broadway to Long Eaton.

Evening performances are at 7.30pm plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £12 stalls, £14 balcony and £10 concessions under 16s/OAPs. Call the box office on 01332 874352 or buy online at www.longeatonoperatic.com. Tickets arev also available from Heaps Stationers, 81 Main Street, Long Eaton from March 6.
