Cowardy Custard at Buxton Opera House.

Buxton Opera House is calling all Mad Dogs and Englishmen as Britain’s best-loved cabaret artists Dillie Keane, Kit and the Widow and Buxton’s own Savannah Stevenson salute Sir Noël Coward in the first major revival of his musical show Cowardy Custard on May 31 and June 1.

Revisit excerpts from Coward’s best-loved comedies (Design for Living, Present Laughter, Tonight At 8.30pm, Private Lives and Blithe Spirit) interspersed with his most brilliant songs including Don’t Put Your Daughter on the Stage Mrs Worthington, A Room with a View, Poor Little Rich Girl, The Stately Homes of England, Mad about the Boy, I’ve Been to a Marvellous Party, London Pride, Mad Dogs and Englishmen and many, many more.

Nobody is sacred: tourists, aristocrats, stage mothers, young lovers, old bores – social climbers least of all.

The show stars Olivier Award-nominated actress, singer and comedienne Dillie Keane, and the UK’s leading society cabaret act Kit and The Widow, with two of the West End’s fastest rising young performers, Buxton’s own starlet Savannah Stevenson (Gone with the Wind, Aspects of Love) and Stuart Neal (La Cage Aux Folles, Lord of the Rings).

Tickets are £20.50 and £22.50. Call the box office on 0845 127 2190.
