Gala Night Opening 24

By Open Air Theatre


Friends and families gathered last week for the official opening night of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which was supported by lead media partner Country Life. We were also thrilled to welcome David Landay who wrote the book, and Jennifer Carter-Hirschhorn, widow of Joel Hirschhorn who, with Al Kasha, wrote new songs for the stage musical.

Celebrating the opening, Canard Duchêne supplied champagne to accompany canapés created by Head Chef Richard Dryden, including pork belly croquettes, carrot arancini, smoked salmon cream cheese and cavier, date and earl grey tea madeleines with a muscovado tip and bite size lavender doughnut with chocolate sauce.

Also joining us at the opening night were John Lithgow, Alison Steadman, Bonnie Langford, Christopher Biggins, Janie Dee, Sheila White, Harriet Thorpe and our Platinum Patrons Carol Bown, Rosemary Cox, Josephine and Oliver Rogger, Maureen Sutherland-Smith, and Andrew and Sandra Treagus.
