MUSICALS fans hopped on the Chattanooga Choo Choo and went Over the Rainbow at Some Enchanted Evening for us, but can you guess the type of event?
That’s correct – musical theatre! Our toe-tapping A Night at the Musicals in Portishead saw over 175 people take their seats for the audio treat to raise a fabulous £1,800.
Spectacular North Somerset soloist Rachael Cooper and Cheddar Male Choir amazed with two action-packed acts, and marvellous musician and poet Martin Kiszko compered on November 18.
“It was a magnificent musical extravaganza. Hits including Some Enchanted Evening, Rhythm of Life, You’ll Never Walk Alone and Love Never Dies really got people tapping, singing and smiling.
“The award-winning group and Rachael’s finale, Climb Every Mountain, was sublime and closed to rapturous applause.
“We thank every performer and audience member for helping make this so successful.” – Ian Riddell, Penny Brohn community fundraiser.
A raffle, with prizes including champagne tea for four in Bristol and a Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm family ticket added to the total.
