After a season filled with a wider range of shows than ever before, the Summer Season at Hever draws to a close in the same style, with a feast of musical entertainment to appeal to all tastes:

Saturday 20th August welcomes the Harlem Hot Feet and a Night at the Cotton Club. Exciting, Colourful and Action-Packed are the three words most commonly used to describe this productions which features The Jiving Lindy Hoppers, Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra and Tony Jacobs. It celebrates the music, dance and songs of the Cotton Club, the famous nightclub which flourished in New Yorks Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s, with the excitement and exuberance of the jazz age authentically captured in music and dance.

The East Coast Boys return to Hever the following Saturday, 27th August with Big Girls Dont Cry, a Celebration of the Music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Four very talented vocal actors and their superb backing musicians pay tribute to one of the most iconic bands in contemporary music with songs such as Bye Bye Baby, Sherry and Oh! What a Night. The hits of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons span four decades and this show will appeal to those who were fans of the boys in their heyday, and those new fans of the current hit musical The Jersey Boys.

And finally, The Last Night of the Hever Proms presented by The Brandenburg Sinfonia closes the season on Sunday 28th August, with a traditional programme that includes Jerusalem, the March of Pomp and Circumstance and all the last night favourites, as well as other popular classics including some wonderful orchestral music by Bernstein, Greig and Mozart as well as popular operatic pieces by Puccini, Strauss and Mascagni.

The Theatre provides reserved and covered seating. More details can be found on this and the Summer Festival 2011 at www.heverfestival.co.uk, or on Facebook.
