Music & Lyrics by Kander & Ebb

Sunday 29th July from 10am at Playlovers Inc, Draper Street, Floreat.
Premiering here in WA ! This wonderful musical by the team who gave us 'Chicago' & 'Cabaret!
Set in the 1970's in a run down roller rink on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States ...The Rink is a story of forgiveness between a Mother and Daughter.....finding their way of letting go of the past and moving into the future... it's a moving tale with so many highs and lows...some of the songs from this show were used in the musical revue by Kander & Ebb 'And The World Goes Round', it featured 'The Rink' 'Marry Me' 'We Can Make It' & 'Coloured Lights'.
The original cast starred Liza Minnelli & Chita Rivera as Angel and Anna.
