The Merryatric Players present Marie Claire
17 November 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Marie Claire is a young girl who has come to Paris from the provinces to seek a career as a singer. She is working as a kitchen maid in the Parapluie, a Parisian nightclub, when the Manager overhears her singing to herself. He is sufficiently impressed to give her a spot in the cabaret. She is an ‘overnight’ success, and the Parapluie becomes ‘the place’ to go. Henri Bergere, a young patron of the Parapluie, is smitten with her, and decides that she is the girl of his dreams. But Marie Claire has a ‘past’ and when it is revealed, there are unforeseen consequences for her, for Henri, and for everyone involved with her. But, in true Parisian fashion, there is a happy ending, of sorts, for everybody.
This is a delightful, funny, heart-warming show, filled with well known songs that conjure up the atmosphere of the Parisian night-life of days gone by, and presented in the Merryatrics’ inimitable, youthful and energetic style.
