KIDDERMINSTER theatre fans are invited to explore the true story of the worst singer in the world.

The Nonentities drama society will bring their next comedy production, Glorious, to the Rose Theatre from Monday, May 13, to Saturday, May 18.

The heart-warming comedy is about Florence Foster Jenkins, the enthusiastic soprano who was dubbed ‘The first woman of the sliding scale.’

Set in New York in the 1940s, the audience will be transported to charity recitals, extravagant balls and even the lofty heights of Carnegie hall as ‘The Diva of Din’ sings her way through her repertoire with a pitch that is far from perfect.

Tickets for Glorious are available via the website, or by contacting the Box Office on 01562 743745.

Historically, the recitals Florence gave were often the hottest tickets in town, with artists such as Cole Porter counted among her most ardent fans.

The play is about a eccentric woman who refuses to be cowed by critics, and who is a true champion for all those people who want to but never do.
