Quartet | Jetty Theatre
High drama, opera and theatre in Coffs Harbour.
The rumour at Beecham House is that the home for retired musicians will soon play host to a former star! For Reggie, Wilfred and Cecily this sort of talk is par for the course. But they’re in for a shock when the new arrival turns out to be their former singing partner, Jean Horton. Her career as an opera star, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie.
Can these four ageing opera singers put aside their differences for one final showstopping performance of the famous quartet from Rigoletto? That’s Quartet by Ronald Harwood, a feisty play that was made into a movie in 2012 starring Dame Maggie Smith, Dustin Hoffman and Billy Connolly.
CHATS Productions Inc are performing this play from March to April at the Jetty Memorial Theatre, opening Wednesday 26th March.
Bookings at the Jetty Theatre Box Office, noon till 4pm except Mondays, phone 6652 8088 or online. Prices: $25, $22 conc, groups and “cheap days” $20.
