Once again Exmouth Musical Theatre Company have been honoured to be part of the Exmouth Rotary 'Last Night of The Proms' for 2016, at Exmouth Pavilion. On Thursday 15th September we were proud to perform alongside the South West Comms band, to a packed house who joined us in singing, waving and jigging along to a joyful set of tunes chosen to honour the Queen's 90th birthday.
During the performance, EMCo supported a good-old patriotic sing-along, to many well-known (and less so) tunes from years gone by. A finale of 'Rule Britannia' saw Kate Lees return as the soloist to call the audience to song.
We also sang a number of songs from previous concerts and shows, including 'Lullaby of Broadway' and 'Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man of Mine' (soloist Debbie Butler)
The South West Comms Band, previously Lympstone Town Band, were once again a tour de force of musicality and entertainment. It was clear that their many awards and acolades are well placed, as their powerful brass sound filled the Pavilion hall and left no toe untapped.
In addition to songs from previous shows, EMCo also performed a short set of songs from the upcoming production of 'Evita' (soloists Lance Vernon and Frankie Parry) which will also appear at the Exmouth Pavilion in November, from 22nd to 26th. Ticket information can be found here.
