EVERYONE LOVES PANTOMIME WHEN ALMA IS THE STAR ATTRACTION IN 1959
- read below
You will see Alma Cogan winsome in Tyrolean costume, running away to join Meg’s circus, joining in choruses and sharing out the show’s two dozen songs so that Helen & Barbara can carry the story along vocally while she gets ready for the Cogan solo session that will be the talk of the town after the curtain goes up on Christmas eve. Worthing Herald Fri 23/12/59
ALMA COGAN: Local girl, top "pop" singer and television favourite, she has the role of Trudie, the innkeeper's daughter who leaves home to satisfy her love of animals with the circus. . GEORGE BOLTON: Established player of dames he appears as the mother of Goldilocks and the big-hearted owner of a circus that is falling on hard times. JOE CHURCH: He describes role as "something between Buttons and Simple Simon." He is providing his own comedy material—"the inane, simple kind." he says—and sandwiching this show between a recent Forces tour of the Middle East and a second visit to Australia.
