The Yarrow in Broadstairs is hosting a new dinner theatre event which , in the style of a plush 1950s nightclub ,will offer a slick and sophisticated floor show, fine dining and dancing to live music to end the evening in style.
Producer Gordon Clarkson said: “We believe that the time is right to offer the combination of our excellent entertainment, a delicious three course dinner and dancing to live music. The evening is an experience that people will really be inspired by and no one else is offering a package like this, certainly not locally.
“I am delighted the management of The Yarrow are as excited as we are at the prospect of these type of evenings taking off and spearheading quality hospitality in our lovely corner of the world”
The show is titled I’ve Got Gershwin and a talented quartet comprising Gordon, Stacy Young, Tiffany Hemmings and Frank Tucker are supported by musical backing of Paul Stewart on piano and Roy Golding on percussion.
They perform popular songs drawn from The Great American Songbook. The guys stay in evening suits throughout, while the ladies appear in ever more glamorous gowns for each entrance.
The guests will be greeted with a complimentary drink on arrival and shown to their tables. The restaurant is decorated in powder blue with white columns and crystal chandeliers, the lights are dimmed and Act 1 will take place.
Songs such as ‘Someone to watch over me,’ ‘S’Wonderful’ and ‘Fly me to the moon’ unfold up to the Act 1 finale ‘They can’t take that away from me.’
After the meal Act 2 will begin with coffee with a tap routine to ‘Fascinating Rhythm’ and more great songs until the finale ‘I’ve Got Rhythm.
The musicians will then return to play for dancing.
I’ve Got Gershwin takes place on Saturday, March 23 and costs £45.
