Betty Blue Eyes @ The Borough Theatre @ The Borough Theatre | Wales | United Kingdom

You are cordially invited to join Concept Players as they return this March with the extremely funny musical ‘Betty Blue Eyes’.

Based on the film ‘A Private Function’, written by Alan Bennett and starring Michael Palin and Maggie Smith, it’s a musical romp set around the impending wedding celebrations of young Princess Elizabeth to the dashing Philip Mountbatten in 1947. But these are desperate times where rationing is even worse than it had been in the war.

So desperate times call for desperate measures!

Enter the mild chiropodist Gilbert Chilvers and his social-climbing wife Joyce. When they are snubbed one too many times by the local establishment, Gilbert takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps a pig from the local bigwigs who were planning a very exclusive private function where the pig was to play a starring role – on several plates! Needless-to-say keeping a pig quiet in a suburban street proves rather difficult and hilarity ensues.

So join Concept Players, fresh from recent successes of ‘She Loves Me’ and ‘My Fair Lady’, as they bring you this Stiles and Drew musical to life (the team behind ‘Mary Poppins’ and ‘Honk!’). You may not know the show now but you’ll never forget Betty Blue Eyes once you’ve met her.

This fun musical is brought to you by Concept Players, well known for their colourful quality productions so this isn’t one to be missed.

A new weekly Chatterbooks group for eight and nine-year-olds is starting in Abergavenny Library on Friday 8th March from 4pm to 5pm.  At Chatterbooks sessions children can meet new friends while discovering and sharing a passion for reading as they talk about books and take part in games, craft activities and competitions.  The sessions are free and all are welcome.

Chatterbooks is the UK’s largest network of children’s reading groups and has been created by national charity, The Reading Agency.

Councillor Paul Jordan, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for community hubs and libraries said: “Reading for pleasure is a very important factor in helping children achieve academic success and it opens their eyes to a whole wide world, not only in childhood but throughout life.”
