The Lyric


Get ready for the musical event of the season as Cole Porter’s timeless classic, High Society, skips into town in a dazzling new production from the award winning producers of The King and I.

Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings in an attempt to try and win her back. As the day of the wedding draws closer we’re left guessing which groom the bride will choose!

Michael Praed (Robin of Sherwood and The Sound of Music) stars as Dexter Haven, Carolyn Pickles (Emmerdale) as Margaret Lord, Teddy Kempner (Acorn Antiques The Musical and RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby) as Uncle Willie, Daniel Boys (Any Dream Will Do) as Mike Connor with Sophie Bould (The Sound of Music) as Tracy Lord.

Adapted from the hit 1956 film, which starred screen legends Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra, High Society bubbles with a host of beautiful ballads including True Love, You’re Sensational and the unforgettable Well, Did You Evah! Prepare yourself for a glorious night of vintage Hollywood as you’re invited to the wedding of the year, and what a swell party it is gonna be!
