ACT2 is planning an outing to see SOUVENIR but when we go depends on majority of votes for date and time. It is even possible if we get 10 people who want to go that we can get a group rate of $30 per ticket instead of the box office price of $38. It will be performed at The Hannah Center Theatre on the campus of The O’Neal School 3300 Airport Rd., Southern Pines
- Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm (early curtain, opening night)
- Saturday, May 11 at 2:00 pm (matinee)
It’s time to believe again in the power of music! SOUVENIR is the true story of one of opera’s most unforgettable stars. Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric and wealthy New York socialite, believes she is an enchanting coloratura soprano and she wants to share her talent with the world. After teaming up with a new pianist, Cosmé McMoon, she begins to hold recitals at the Ritz Carlton, festooned in fabulous costumes. She becomes a sensation! Unfortunately, the truth is Mrs. Jenkins can’t sing. But, there’s more than one way to get to Carnegie Hall… Based on a true story that became the Oscar nominated Meryl Streep/Hugh Grant film “Florence Foster Jenkins”, this tuneful comedy beguiles the hopeful artist that lives in us all.
Please let Judy McCaffrey know as soon as possible if you are interested and which date you would prefer. email@example.com or 910-215-8814. We can then make plans to get together to discuss the play and/or the movie and their differences.
