Educating Rita performance in aid of the Hollie Gazzard Trust


Educating Rita performance in aid of the Hollie Gazzard Trust

A show which sold out during its run at the Everyman Studio Theatre before Christmas is being performed in Gloucester next week, ending on Saturday 24 January with a special benefit night for the Hollie Gazzard Trust.
 
Willy Russell’s modern classic, Educating Rita, presented by the Everyman’s professional theatre company opens at the Kings Theatre next Wednesday.
 
Directed by Paul Milton, Educating Rita tells the story of hairdresser Rita (played by Dani Carbery) who feels that life has passed her by.  She wants an education.  But does Open University lecturer Frank (Mark Carey) have anything to teach her?  Educating Rita is a hilarious, and often moving, story of a woman’s determination to change her life.
 
Paul Milton, the Everyman’s creative director said: “We are keen to spread our wings and take more projects out of Cheltenham and reach out to all sections of the community, giving more people an opportunity to enjoy quality productions.
“We felt the theme of the play would lend itself perfectly for a benefit show in aid of the Hollie Gazzard Trust and we hope it is well supported.”

 
Nick Gazzard, chairman of The Hollie Gazzard Trust said: “We are delighted that the play is Educating Rita. It shows the drive and ambition of a hairdresser to better herself and change her life. Hollie had the same drive and ambition and that is why the play is so fitting as a tribute to Hollie.”
