THE love story of Lola and Tony is at the heart of the next production by Harpenden Light Operatic Society (HLOS) at the Public Halls next week.

HLOS are performing Barry Manilow’s Copacabana from next Monday, March 18, until Saturday, March 23. A modern show which is unashamedly over the top in terms of musical numbers and costumes, the story follows Stephen, a young inspiring songwriter, as he composes what he hopes will become a hit musical.

He creates a story around ambitious young singer Lola de Mar with whom Tony Forte, who is aiming to make it as a songwriter, falls in love as he is tending the bar at the famous Copacabana Nightclub.

The Barry Manilow hit is now a full-scale, Broadway-style musical fantasy. It is being directed for HLOS by Sally Davies with Isobel Handley as musical director.
