The Grand Rehearsal is a grand success!

The Grand Rehearsal, a new mini-musical by Jorgen and Libbet Booth, was performed over three days at Emmanuel United Reformed Church, Worthing and raised an amazing £2,800 for charity.

The story was of the predicament of a village choir whose numbers had reduced to just two singers, and the twist in the tale was that within five minutes of the show starting, the audience became aware that they were the new choir members and they would be the ones singing! And that they did, singing along to tunes like Bring Me Sunshine, Edelweiss and Land of Hope & Glory, to name but a few.
