It’s nearly time for Stagestruck’s latest show. This year’s summer production
is ‘From a Jack to a King’ and will be particularly enjoyed if you’re a fan of
1960s music. There are three performances at the Cardenal Belluga Theatre
in San Fulgencio on the 17 th , 18 th and 19 th May. The script is an original one
written by Leigh Humphries.
This musical comedy is set in the East End of London in the late 1960s and
the opening scene is in the Hope Pub which has seen better days. You get to
meet some local ‘characters’ including Danny and Tommy – the die hard
regulars and Johnnie Bigg who is initially mistaken for a stripper. The show
takes us through the next four years and the changes in the characters and
their surroundings.
You will recognise your favourite actors, once more treading the boards. The
lead roles of Harry Grimes and Daphne Brown are played by Jim Speakman
and Jenny Dexter and they’re supported by a cast of 21. It’s a story of triumph
over adversity but with plenty to laugh at along the way.
It’s only €8 a ticket and proceeds from ticket sales go to a selection of local
charities with the main charity being Torrevieja Alzheimer Association. Tickets
are on sale at The Post Box, Quesada, The Post Room, Benijofar, The Card
Place, Benimar, Cards and More, La Marina, Kennedy's Supermarket,
Montesinos and Leaf's (Formerly Marabu Lounge), Quesada. Alternatively
