10 May to 12 May 2018

The Riviera Amateur Dramatic Association's have a crackin’ new play coming in May called CASABLANCA. The production follows the story of the movie, with the famous lines intact, but it's a shorter script adapted for radio. It's going to be performed as if they were broadcasting live radio, with a studio audience back in 1941.  So you will get to see actors doing the script and making all their own sound effects, with live musical items and wartime adverts between scenes. It should be very entertaining with lots of visual humour! The play will have three performances at Mougins School from Thurs 10th of May to Saturday 12th. Tickets are just €12, and to reserve one, all you have to do is email
