BA (Hons) Drama and Performance student, Lara McDowell, will be hosting a fundraising event to support her musical, Love & Kisses from Omaha, inspired by her Grandmother’s past.
The performance with music composed by Ben Macpherson, Course Leader of Musical Theatre, is based on love letters written to Lara’s Grandmother, Olive, during WW2.
To fundraise this event, the new theatre company which Lara is a part of, Memoirs Theatre, will be holding a cabaret night at the Eldon Arms on Thursday 24th March. The fundraiser will start at 7pm, featuring a selection of sentimental performances by the cast of the musical, as well as an exclusive sneak peek from the show.
The event is FREE for to all attend but there will be donation buckets on the night if you would like to support Lara and the extremely talented student cast and creative team.
