SUNSET BOULEVARD

16th – 17th and 22nd – 24th September 

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning masterpiece, Sunset Boulevard, based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film, comes to Folkestone’s Tower Theatre in a stunning new FHODS production.

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screenwriter, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on her ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to break free with dramatic consequences.

With its much-loved score including Sunset BoulevardWith One Look and The Perfect Year, this new production promises to be a spectacular event!

Formed in 1902, FHODS is one of the UK’s oldest amateur dramatics organisations.

FHODS is very lucky to have such talent amongst it’s Youth Section, we as an audience were lucky to watch it, and they were lucky to have Michelle to guide them through it. Well done Youth Section.

Just went to see the Panto with my grandchildren this afternoon, first time at the theatre, very impressed, lovely staff and a great show, well done to all involved, already booked for next year!!

Wow what a fantastic and amazing pantomime, with such a brilliant cast and crew. The show was full of fun, laughter, joy, smiles and cheer and would highly recommend the Tower Theatre. All cast and dancers were outstanding of a high standard and we were made to feel so welcome. Excellent prices for drink, sweets etc and programme. We will definitely be back.

Amazing performance by all the cast! Fun for all the family, will definitely be returning! My daughter is already asking “when can we see it again?!”
