“Anne Reid to perform in Antibes for our Schools” June 6 and 7. Bon Chance Antibes.

In CategoryJohns blog

On Friday and Saturday night, the 6th and 7th of June Anne Reid is performing for a very welcoming Cote d’Azur audience and for our Schools in Cambodia. Remember that other than ten Cambodian teachers we have zero administration or expenses – no other staff… so 100% of what people donate goes to our schools. This was in the Antibes press the other day. (we will report on the performance night around the 11th of June, along with 50 or more photos that the Antibes audience will have seen on Show weekend) :-

‘Dear friends

 A fabulous start to the summer awaits you!!!
We bring you news of a World Premier cabaret at La Timonerie, when National Treasure, Anne Reid returns to the Riviera to give the very first performances of her brand new cabaret “Love Bytes.” Anne  is one of Britain’s most-loved and respected actors, star of the very popular Last Tango in Halifax, Ladies of Letters, Dinnerladies and Coronation Street.
Every since she was memorably electrocuted by a hair dryer in the early days of Corrie, Anne  has been a familiar figure to audiences everywhere in her many roles on television, stage and screen. In 2004 she received accolades and acclaim for her starring role in the film The Mother, as a woman who has an affair with her daughter’s boy-friend, played by Daniel Craig.
Her cabaret career started right here in Antibes in July 2012!!  That first show, performed with her award-winning musical director Stuart Hutchinson,  went from La Timonerie to the West End  where she garnered rave reviews in the national press.

Never was “book now to avoid disappointment” more sincerely meant! Anne’s unique talents, humour and  warmth make for an unforgettable evening of pure cabaret joy.

 Donations, as always, directly to our schools’ project in Cambodia.

The show starts at 8.00pm  on June 6 and 7.   We welcome you from 7.40 pm onwards.

 Please note the show is at La Timonerie and NOT( for technical reasons) at Theatre Antibea as previously stated.

Your donations (cash please) include complimentary wine and canapés at intermission”
