Saturday 1st February
Comedy cabaret chanteuse down on her luck highly medicated ‘recovering showgirl’ Miss Hope Springs plays the piano and sings songs from her all-original repertoire and recounts tales from her Ritz-to-the-pits showbiz life. You’ll hear hysterical stories interspersed with songs about her various paramours from Liberace to Barry Manilow, and she spills the beans about what it’s like to live with her husband Irving and his hairdresser pal Carlos in a camper van in Dungeness. Still wearing the sequinned pantsuit and marabou boa she was wearing when she left the Pink Pelican Casino in 1972, Hope brings you her unique blend of finger snapping pop, romantic rhumbas, sassy bossa novas and smouldering torch songs in this unique ‘laugh-out-loud, move-you-to-tears show’. Join Hope as she opens her battered 'suitcase of dreams' to share more magical musical mementos.’
Miss Hope Springs’ music and lyrics written and performed by Ty Jeffries
