Michael Praed to star in High Society at Theatre Royal Plymouth

Michael Praed will star in a dazzling new production of Cole Porter’s High Society at Theatre Royal Plymouth this spring.

Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings in an attempt to win her back.

A further twist arrives in the form of the charming reporter Mike Connor who falls instantly for Tracy, and she for him.

As the day of the wedding draws closer, the audience is left guessing which groom the bride will choose.

Adapted from the hit 1956 film, High Society fizzes with a host of beautiful Cole Porter ballads including True Love, You’re Sensational and the unforgettable Well, Did You Evah!

The original film starred Bing Crosby as Dexter Haven, Frank Sinatra as Mike Connor and Grace Kelly as Tracy Lord, her last film role before she became Princess Grace of Monaco.

This new production stars Michael Praed (Robin of Sherwood and The Sound of Music) as Dexter Haven and the cast also includes Sophie Bould (The Sound of Music) as Tracy Lord and Daniel Boys (Any Dream Will Do) as Mike Connor.

The producers are Music & Lyrics, whose first show was the highly successful UK tour of The King & I which visited Theatre Royal Plymouth last spring.

High Society is at Theatre Royal Plymouth from February 19 to 23, 2013. Tickets are on sale now.
