With Stars in her eyes, a prayer in her heart and only a pair of tap shoes in her suitcase, young Ruby arrives on Broadway to find her fame and fortune. In true musical fashion she lands a part in the chorus and falls in love... But life is not plain sailing. It's opening night and the theatre is about to be demolished. Will they find another venue...? Of course the show must go on... but on board a US Navy Battleship? With show stopping dance routines, comedy, romance and a leading lady who suffers from sea-sickness, Dames at Sea
is the affectionate spoof of 1940's movie musicals for everyone who's ever tapped their feet. She climbed on board a youngster and disembarked a Star! A musical bursting with Busby Berkley nostalgia.Performers Rosemary Ashe (Mona Kent), Ian Mowat (The Captain), Gemma Sutton (Ruby), Claire Marlowe (Joan), Daniel Bartlett (Dick), Alan Hunter (Lucky), Anthony Wise (Hennessey), Sasi Strallen, Meg Gallagher, Natalie Kent, Joshua Tonks, Matt Gillett, Jonny Godbold.
