During 2021, Eltham Little Theatre are generously offering U3A members half price tickets for some of their Thursday evening and Sunday matinee shows. The first three dates for which this applicable at The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke by C.J. Dennis on: Sunday, 28th February, starting 2pm; Sunday, 7th March, starting 2pm; and Thursday, 11th March, starting 8pm.
Here's the blurb about the show: you will see a full staged version of all 14 of Dennis' songs (long poems) from a century ago. It's the charming story of Bill, a young ne’er do well who decides to turn his life around. He sees and falls for the lovely Doreen and you follow their friendship through its ups and downs as they court, wed, become farmers and finally have a child. Every song is included in full and the show will be performed in the round, with audience on all sides.
Here are the mechanics: you book your tickets online. Choose the date, then the number of tickets, then enter the 'U3A50' discount code in the 'gift certificate / promotion code' box, then pay. These seats are in the round with no seat allocation as it is general admission, however people can sit together if coming in a group. Covid-19 regulations at time of performances will be adhered to.
Thanks to Lynne Stevens-Chappel and Alison Jones for making this happen.
