YCA Autumn Meeting 'Musical Halls and Showgirls, Queen Margaret's, Escrick, 21 October
Bad Apple Theatre will be back by popular demand with their new show, Elephant Rock!
From the great age of the steamers and through the heyday of the British seaside resorts the old Palace dance hall stood proudly on the pier front attended by the greatest of all attractions, The Mechanical Elephant. But the relentless tides have chipped away at the coast and the mighty Elephant Rock that gave the headland its name has seemingly walked off overnight.Come and join us for comic capers from a family who are trying to keep the Palace doors on, and open, as they delve into a complicated family history of music hall owners spanning 100 years and 5000 miles to the elephant-filled grasslands of Sri Lanka.
Rowena Harker Leder was a Bluebell Girl in the States in the glamorous Rat Pack years and attends as our guest speaker to talk about her time as a dancer and showgirl in Vegas where she met Frank Sinatra
We will also be running a Showgirl Corsage Competition! Make and wear a Showgirl themed corsage on the day to be in with a chance of winning!This event will be limited to 220 places so please do be prepared to book once tickets are released.
