Harrogate Operatic Players are not a society to take a break!
Following the success of their summer show, ‘Betty Blue Eyes’ they’re taking the bold step of launching their next blockbuster show, ‘Top Hat’ in just a few weeks!
HOPS will return to the glamorous surroundings of the Royal Hall to make way for the fantastic and vast sets for this sparkling spectacle of a show which originally starred Hollywood’s original golden couple, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Top Hat is a glittering and feel-good romantic musical comedy that celebrates 1930s song, style and romance and is packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits including, ‘Cheek to Cheek’, ‘Top Hat’, ‘White Tie & Tails’, ‘Let’s Face the Music & Dance’ and ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’.
Top Hat tells the story of Broadway star, ‘Jerry Travers’ who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl ‘Dale Tremont’.
HOPS will begin their search for the cast of Top Hat with their launch night at the spectacular Royal Hall itself and are inviting all to audition for the many tap dancers, singers and principal characters in the show. The production team are also searching for a strong back stage team and would love prospective new backstage members to join them at the launch.
