SUNSET CAFE STOMPERS
Sunday 24th February at 7pm
(Doors open at 6:15)
The Warehouse Theatre is delighted to welcome back The Sunset Café Stompers. The Stompers are one of the top UK jazz bands and play the music of the golden age of jazz … great melodies from Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington… and the band's wide repertoire also features songs made famous by artists as diverse as Patsy Cline, Marilyn Monroe, Fats Domino… Beneath it all lies that enthralling pulse - the sound of New Orleans. Great feet tappin' music!
Proceeds from the evening will go to the Mayor of Ilminster's Fund for Local Charities
Some years ago we were lucky enough to obtain premises at the former fruit and vegetable warehouse on Brewery Lane. Through much hard work, grants and donations a theatre was formed which now seats 150 people and represents one of the most well equipped, professional-standard amateur theatres in the county. The theatre now stages IES productions as well as outside theatre and musical companies and also plays host to Ilminster Cinema Club, Ile Valley Flower Club and many other social clubs. The Theatre is also available for private hire for parties and corporate events.
