Magnolia in 'Showboat'

Showboat

by Jerome Kern & Oscar Hammerstein II

May 1997: Wallington Operatic Society

Director: Will Harris

Photographs: Jackie Frost

I remain startled to this day that I ended up playing the gentle, sweet ingenue Magnolia - not a type I've been noted for. She need to sing properly, too (rather than my usual torch-song belt), so for only the second time in my life I took a few lessons. A lovely show, but a huge challenge.
