In what year was Top Hat, the American musical comedy film, first shown and whose famous dance partnership did it immortalise?

Top Hat is YAOS’s forthcoming two-week production from Tuesday 13 March – Saturday 24 March, bringing the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age and the glorious tap-dancing magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the stage.
The show is packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits, including Cheek to Cheek, Putting on the Ritz, Let’s Face the Music and Dance and Top Hat, White Tie and Tails. It tells the story of Broadway sensation, Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl Dale Tremont .
The two lead roles are played by Shaun Driver, last seen tapping his way through White Christmas and the elegant Naomi Lawton (who as Naomi Riglar played a delightful Anna in The King and I).The production is directed by Brian Epps, who is new to YAOS, but extremely well known in the South West. Sheila Driver is the choreographer and Gill Merrifield is the musical director.
So if you want an uplifting and hilarious romantic comedy, with beautiful costumes and stylish dance numbers, then get yourself to the Octagon Theatre, Yeovil for your tickets to get that feel-good factor for March.
