Edwardian elegance and entertainment are promised when The Dukes stages a Northern night like no other on 25th April.
The Lancaster theatre will take on a distinct music hall feel for a Charity Gala Performance of The Life And Times Of Mitchell & Kenyon when guests will be encouraged to dress to impress.
Edwardian host for the night is local actor, Nick Camm who will welcome guests into The Dukes Café Bar which will be decked out to suit the era and where free fizz will be on offer.
Blackpool entertainer Fran Lee will perform a variety of well known music hall songs in the bar before guests are invited to see The Dukes latest homegrown production about Blackburn film pioneers, Mitchell & Kenyon.
The play, which opens on 19th April, is full of songs, laughter and original films from the Edwardian era which gave ordinary folk their 15 minutes of fame on the big screen.
After the Gala Night show, guests will be encouraged to join a singsong around the piano and pose for pictures Edwardian style.
Also during the evening, Dukes patron James Mackie will speak about how the financial support of Friends, Patrons and Guardians of the theatre – which is a registered charity - an help safeguard its future.
Tickets for the Gala Night are £30 including a ticket to the show, fizz, nibbles and plenty of late night entertainment.
