A million dollar proposition

A million dollar proposition
Studio 32´s White Christmas

IT MAY be a sunny November on the Costa Blanca but a snowy winter beckons for Studio32’s cast as they prepare for their next show. This talented company will be performing a wonderful stage adaptation of that film favourite, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. The show contains some all-time classic songs including Blue Skies, Sisters, and the Bing Crosby title number White Christmas.

Show producers Phil Davies and Bob Wallace need a helping hand with publicity when they decide to stage a show to help their old army commander. Who better to ask than another old army buddy turned TV producer Ralph Sheldrake (played by John Palmer, pictured right) who gets them air time on the famous TV programme ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’. Ralph is a bit of a wide-boy, and describes his plans to help as “a million dollar proposition”, but his telephone conversation is overheard and mis-interpreted, and not everything runs quite as smoothly as he planned. Ralph is assisted by his long-suffering secretary Ethel (played by Dianne Oliver, pictured left) who tries to keep everything under control. Will it be a million-dollar winner after all?

This is John’s second show with Studio32, having played the role of Bob Cratchitt in last winter’s show A Christmas Carol. Dianne has been with the company a lot longer, having been a founder member in 2013. She has played many roles including Marley’s Ghost in the same show, and the pianist in Studio32’s recent summer show Mack and Mabel.
