Cole Porter’s High Society tours from January

Date Posted: 05/10/2012

A new theatre production of Cole Porter musical High Society will tour the UK and Ireland from January, opening at Venue Cymru in Llandudno, Wales.

Adapted from the hit 1956 film of the same name which starred Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly, High Society features a string of Cole Porter ballads including True Love, You’re Sensational and Did You Evah!


Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings in an attempt to win her back.

A further twist arrives in the form of the charming reporter Mike Connor who falls instantly for Tracy, and she for him. As the day of the wedding draws closer, which groom will the bride choose?

Michael Praed reprises Bing Crosby’s role

Michael Praed will star as Dexter Haven, immortalised in the 1956 film by Bing Crosby, alongside Sophie Bould as Tracy Lord and Daniel Boys as Mike Connor.
