Chair of HAODS, Julie Huntington said, “This is a fantastic show that will appeal to the whole family. Cole Porter’s music is timeless-which has been proven by the large audiences it has attracted.  The cast have gelled from the start which shows in the performances.  Everyone on stage is having a ball and we hope that the audience will join in!”
