Music and passion back in fashion in Maidenhead production

Music and passion will once again be in fashion in Barry Manilow's Copacabana at Maidenhead Town Hall.

The Maidenhead Musical Comedy Society is staging the famous story of Lola the show girl, 'who has feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there'.

It is directed by Jennifer Scott, with Gemma Hough playing the show girl Lola and also the musical's choreographer.

Neil Matthews is the musical director.

"We did the show eight years ago and is was so popular," said Barry Scott, who plays failing night club owner Sam.

"It's a magical story that is very well choreographed with fantastic musical scores."

The show is told through the eyes of Stephen, an aspiring modern day writer who dreams up Lola, who arrives from Tulsa to follow her dreams of stardom as a Copa Girl in Sam's night club.

But those dreams are shattered when Rico, a rival night club boss, seea Lola dance and whisks her off to the seedy nightclubs and murky underworld of Havana in Cuba.

Copacabana runs from Wednesday, October 3 to Sunday, October 7
