Not content with the very successful run last October for our Old Time Musical Hall production with the Careline Theatre group, we repeated the show for one night at the modern theatre of Calpe Casa de Cultura, in front of an audience of 270. Because of the time lapse, this required a lot of rehearsals but the end result was worth it, as the standing ovation proved! Once again, Vernon took the MC role played by Leonard Sachs in the BBC TV series and Celia took part in several tap routines and all the chorus numbers. Some of the photos can be viewed in our gallery.
Meanwhile, Vernon joined the Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir, which we have been following for several years after including them in our 2012 ‘Voices of Distinction’ concert. His debut concert was at the huge 650-seater Teulada Auditori, where CBMVC were one of 4 choirs taking part.
Closely following these two events, we were invited to attend, in our role as mentors for the single-parent support group Guardian Angels, the Bay Radio Charity Awards Gala at the Denia Marriot Hotel. This was a prestigious, red-carpet occasion attended by the mayor of Javea and the British Consul from Alicante. Celia is pictured right with some of her fellow Angels in her ball gown made specially for the occasion. More photos can be seen in our gallery.
