My Grandpa’s A Hero


My Grandpa’s A Hero

It may be a sunny October, but snow is the focus of Studio32’s cast as they prepare for their winter show. This talented company will be performing a wonderful stage adaptation of that Christmas film favourite, Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas”. The show contains some all-time classic songs including “Blue Skies”, “Sisters”, and the Bing Crosby title number “White Christmas”.

After the Second World War General Waverley (played by Don Wilkinson, pictured) retires to run an inn in Pinetree, Vermont. He is joined for the holidays by his grand-daughter Susan (played by Alice Wakeford, pictured) who worships her grandpa, and enjoys telling everyone what a hero he is.

But what grandpa doesn’t know is that the inn is failing as he struggles to come to terms with the transition from army general to innkeeper. To help him out two of his old army buddies – now famous entertainment producers – organise a surprise Christmas show. Will it be enough to save the inn? Find out by coming along to see this fabulous show.

Alice has been with Studio32 for 4½ years, and is one of the rising stars in this talented company. She played Lottie in their last production Mack & Mabel, and is a trained dancer as well as a singer and actress.  Don has been with the company from the start, starring in many shows as a member of the chorus or minor principal. This is his biggest role to date, including a number of monologues, but Don is relishing the challenge of portraying this fine military character.

Studio32 are once again supporting the San Fulgencio Alzheimer’s Association with this production, as well as other local charities. So why not help them raise money for worthy causes whilst enjoying a terrific night’s entertainment.
