The Met Musical Theatre Co. to Present HIGH SOCIETY
The MET proudly presents the classic musical comedy, High Society in May 2018.
Meet Tracy Lord, the society darling, as she prepares for her wedding to the rich (but incredibly dull) George Kittredge. By all accounts it should be the wedding of the year, however things don't quite go as planned!
With a grumpily precocious little sister causing a scene, the unexpected return of her despised ex husband, Dexter and drunken old Uncle Willie's wandering hands - the event seems destined for disaster.
To complicate matters and further add to the chaos, two snooping reporters threaten to expose a family scandal in a dubious gossip magazine.
As if things couldn't get any worse, Tracy finds herself the focus of three potential suitors. Will she go through with the wedding as planned? Will true love prevail? Will the family scandal be exposed? It all makes for an hilariously entertaining snapshot of the well-to-do.
High Society is based on Phillip Barry's fabulously witty play The Philadelphia Story combined with some of Cole Porter's best know classics including: High Society, Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, Let's Misbehave and Well, did you evah?
The MET welcomes back Barry Hill as Director, Ben Saunders as Musical Director and Celeste Barone in her debut as Choreographer.
Director, Barry Hill says: "For me, High Society encapsulates the best dialogue from The Philadelphia Story and of course, has Porter's glorious music. It cleverly captures the manners and lifestyles of the rich and famous in 1930's America, with more than a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure'.
High Society is the perfect marriage of wit, elegance and fabulous, well known songs - guaranteed to please!
