It has been a while since Jávea Players produced a musical, but that is about to be remedied.
Cherry Cabban, Director, has long theatre links as “Mother acted while Father ‘did’ lights”. She joined The Madrid Players in 1974, was a founder member of The Theatre Club in Barcelona and in Brussels ran St. John’s School Middle School drama programme, 220 students every week: “Exhausting, but stimulating!”
“Since 1996 I have directed some 20 plays for The Jávea Players. I always wanted to do My Fair Lady and have loved every moment of the challenge.”
Where would a show be without scenery? John Reynolds trained and worked as an architect and has designed and built sets since he was a teenager.
“MFL is my eleventh set design for the group: others include The 39 Steps and Our Man in Havana.
Most people know MFL as a big musical with grand sets. The limitations of the theatre at Gata, where it’s running for a week, meant that I had to capture the essence of the show in a simple way, allowing the director and actors free rein to tell the story.”
