Sit back an enjoy an evening of enetertainment with tributes to four of the biggest names in American music.

From the company that brought you ‘Boogie Nights’ last year, comes this musical theatre classic.

Opening with the beautiful Eva Cassidy arrangements of such classic songs as ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘Songbird’ and ‘What a Wonderful World’. The show then bursts into a rowdy tribute to the great Johnny Cash with ‘Walk The Line’, ‘Ring Of Fire’, ‘Jackson’ and many more.

Kipps and Ann were childhood friends. When they were parted as children, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him. Years later, Kipps is working as an apprentice in a draper’s shop in Folkestone. Ann arrives in the town, looking for him. They meet and re-kindle their childhood friendship. Then everything changes.

After the interval you will be mesmerised by an enchanting set of Barbra Streisand classics featuring ‘Evergreen’ and ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’ finishing with the stunning duet ‘You Don’t Bring Me Flowers’. The evening will be brought to an end with all the famous Neil Diamond hits including ‘Love On The Rocks’, ‘Forever In Blue Jeans’ and, of course, ‘Sweet Caroline’. All this in one evening makes it a show you don’t want to miss!

Kipps meets Chitterlow – an eccentric actor/playwright – and finds out that he has inherited a fortune. He leaves the shop and is drawn into high society. He meets and falls in love with Helen Walsingham. They get engaged but Ann finds out before Kipps has a chance to tell her. She tells him that she never wants to see him again and is furious and upset at how he has treated her. But Kipps isn’t happy in high society and with the changes it forces upon him.

MARY DUFF FRI 19 JULY 7.30PM

TICKETS £23 As time goes by Mary Duff’s career seems to go from strength to strength, and as the salutation and success continue to roll in for the genuinely charismatic and warm Irish singer, there seems little sign of the celebrated triumphs slowing down. Quite the opposite in fact, as she is about to enter, what is hoped to be, one of the most exciting phases of her career so far continuing a hugely successful number of years which has heralded previously unthought-of achievement for the lovely Irish artist. Not only has Mary made a live television appearance in front of a massive 60 million American viewers, resulting in a number 2 on the Billboard World Music Charts, but success has also grown in the UK. Her album, ‘The Ultimate Collection’, a ‘best of’ album featuring 40 of Mary’s’ best loved songs, was not only her first TV-advertised release, but was also her first ever British chart hit, nestling nicely into the UK Top 50. Not bad for a small country girl from Ireland, who’s wonderfully emotive, yet quietly powerful voice, was all discovered by accident when she was only twelve years old!

Bersted Arts

This year will see Mary bring her show to many parts of the World, including Australia, New Zealand, Sri-Lanka, Switzerland, USA, Canada and all parts of the British Isles.

featuring show stopping performances from The Bersted Community Choir, The Bersted Boys and a number of invited special guests, this fabulous evening of pure entertainment is guaranteed to put you in the party mood!
