TWO young Granthamians will be bringing the West End to Great Gonerby with their novel dinner and a show.
Victoria Rigby and Grant Koper, both 20 years old, are among Grantham’s most promising theatrical talent. In fact, both will be moving to London in the autumn to pursue their theatrical careers.
But before their big move, they want to perform for their home-town. The talented pair will perform some of the West End favourites at the Recruiting Sergeant pub, in Great Gonerby, on Friday, August 26.
Guests will sit down to a three-course meal during the entertainment, which will feature songs from musical favourites My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Cabaret, Chicago, Guys and Dolls and more.
Grant and Victoria both had early drama experience at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham, appearing together in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest in 2004. Since then, both have been involved with a variety of exciting productions.
Grant trained at Laines Theatre Arts, in London, and has just returned from performing on a world cruise. Other past performances include Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady and the principal singer in Shine.
Victoria has just graduated from Cambridge University with a first in English. Her past theatrical experience includes a tour of Japan with Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, and an actors’ showcase at the Soho Theatre in London, with Cambridge’s prestigious Marlowe Society.
There are only 40 tickets on sale to the dinner and show, priced at £19.95 including the three-course meal.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
