Grand Hotel

8th – 13th October 2018, 7.30pm
Monday 8th October performance in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
The Barn Theatre, Cirencester

COS Productions will be showcasing the rare gem, Grand Hotel, following their two best-selling shows, Fiddler on the Roof and Titanic the Musical. This musical treat will see the reunion of
director Barry Austin and musical director Richard Abrams, who brought Cirencester audiences an award-winning production of Jekyll and Hyde in May 2016.

Grand Hotel unfolds in Europe’s most decadent hotel, in the height of the roaring twenties. Over the course of one weekend, six eccentric strangers will cross paths, including a fading prima ballerina
and her devoted companion; a fatally ill Jewish bookkeeper; a young, handsome, but destitute Baron; an honest businessman gone bad, and a typist dreaming of Hollywood success. Although not
often performed, this is a wonderful piece of theatre, brimming with comedy, heart-break and exquisitely written music.

The show's 1989 Broadway production garnered 12 Tony Award nominations, winning five, including best direction and choreography for Tommy Tune. The show became the first American musical since 1985's Big River to top 1,000 performances on Broadway.

COS will be partnering once again with Macmillan Cancer Support for a fundraiser on opening night, having raised over £500 for the charity last year.
