Drama, Dancing, and Singing galore will be coming soon to the Yorkshire Playhouse. Director, Kym Wallingford, is bringing a really fun, revamped rendition of the 1950’s classic, Gigi (played by Schuyler Hellerich). Gigi is born into a family of women who are courtesans to the French royal family. When she comes of age she decides she does not want to live that life and goes on a journey of self discovery. Gigi is not the only one discovering new things; the Yorkshire Playhouse has gone all out for this production like none other. They have now implemented movable sets that can be rotated back and forth to add a whole new side of the story. That’s not all, Choreographer, Jodie Blase, has choreographed beautiful dance numbers for the cast which the audience is sure to enjoy. Also, providing piano accompaniment is Sandra Quiring. All of these new innovations may seem like they may cause trouble for the cast but they have mastered the challenges to put on a good show. If you do not believe me, come see for yourself! The cast of Gigi will be making an appearance at the York Farmers Market tomorrow. They will be performing a few pieces of the show and also there will be a selfie station where you can take pictures with props and backdrops of the show. If you miss the selfie station at the farmers market, we will have it again during showtime at the playhouse. So come one, come all to the musical and dance art piece that is Gigi.
