Algarveans produce another hit

Performers from the Algarveans theatre group staged their latest production, Glorious, to roaring applause from the packed municipal auditorium in Lagoa between June 12 and 14.

This latest show told the true and heart warming, and at times hilarious, story of American society hostess Florence Foster Jenkins.

Director Jenny Grainer said: “From the moment I read the intriguing story of Florence Foster Jenkins two years ago I just knew I had to bring it to the stage.

Never have I enjoyed directing a play as much as this one.”

The show’s cast performed very well and the original times and characters were brought to life with great attention to detail as well as a little help from Carnegie Hall who allowed the use of period photographs.
