A Drop Of Fred
  • Camden Fringe

Ovation presents a brand new revival of A Drop of Fred - this time, with the lead from Billy Elliot.The award-winning drama A Drop of Fred stars Elliott Hanna as Simon Wishart, a young man whose obsession with Fred Astaire got out of hand. First performed at the Edinburgh Festival it was acclaimed by the Scotsman as a runaway hit. If you can only see one show, see A Drop of Fred," wrote Scotland on Sunday, Its a wee gem.Growing up on Merseyside, Simons preoccupation with dance classes and nostalgic movies has made him the laughing stock of his class-mates and led to the end of his teenage romance. Tonights news, that the legendary Fred Astaire has passed away, brings Simon home from his job in a menswear shop in a rueful mood.Conscious of the gulf between Liverpool and Sunset Boulevard he wonders how different his life might have been if he had just had one drop of that great stars talent...A funny and heart-warming account of the perils of dreaming, A Drop of Fred climaxes in a magical display of tap "the happiest sound in the world. ** 3pm Sunday 28th Tap Class + show **More info & tickets: https://upstairsatthegatehouse.ticketsolve.com/shows/1173625436

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
