Enjoy some Hollywood razzmatazz this spring with Bishop's Stortford Musical Theatre Company's (BSMTC) blockbuster cabaret show Magic at the Movies.

Much-loved tunes from films including West Side Story, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Back to the Future, Mamma Mia and A Star is Born will be performed by a talented cast at Manuden Village Community Centre on Friday and Saturday May 6-7 at 7.30pm.

Formulated and directed by the company's chair Charlotte Pritchard and social secretary Cat Quigley, the show will also feature surprises and lesser-known gems.

The theatrical duo wrote and directed two previous BSMTC shows, Class Act and The Bomber Belles, which were both sell-out successes.

"We chose a 'Magic at the Movies' theme for this show as there are so many iconic films over the decades which have fabulous music," said the pair.

"The cast have had a great time rehearsing and are really looking forward to seeing the audience reaction to their hard work."
