Tower Theatre presents Charley's Aunt at Technis
The Tower Theatre amateur dramatic company will present Charley's Aunt by Brandon Thomas at the Theatro Technis in Camden, north London from 26 to 30 April 2016.
The comedy was one of the original cross-dressing productions when it opened in 1892 and has been revived all over the world and was last seen at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2012.
"It's 1890. Jack and Charley wish to propose to Amy and Kitty but the ladies require a chaperone. When Charley's aunt from Brazil sends word she isn't coming, they coerce Lord Fancourt Babberly into impersonating the rich old widow. Then Jack's newly impoverished father arrives along with the girls' greedy guardian and suddenly "Babbs" is the most popular widow in town! And who is the mysterious woman with the pretty young niece?"
The production will be directed by Eddie Coleman and is produced by Tower Theatre Company who aim to provide high quality, broadly based, affordable drama to people of all ages and backgrounds. The amateur company currently has more than 700 members and presents up to 18 productions a year.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
