A musical evening at the Summer Dinner Dance for The Salon Varietes Theatre

Salon Varietes Theatre

On Friday, August 26, The Salon Varietes Theatre held a glamorous evening for their Summer Dinner Dance at Chaparral Golf Club, Las Lagunas de Mijas, on their stunning treetop terrace, ahead of their golf tournament on Sunday.

Friday´s event saw a comedy show, the incredible Johnny G and The Rock n Rollettes (Eva Lloyd and Gracie Cooper) perform, as well as the talented Martin Joseph performing classics from Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack. Guests looked glamorous as they were welcomed with a glass of Cava before their three-course meal with a choice of fish, lamb or pasta as the drinks were flowing on a gorgeous summer evening in The Green Label Restaurant at Chaparral Golf Club!

Many of the guests are supporters and regulars of The Salon Varietes Theatre, a fantastic English-speaking theatre in the centre of Fuengirola.

Guests Sheila Quarterman and Sheila and Bruce Godson said at the event: “We came here because of friends suggesting this amazing event at this beautiful restaurant. We are actually going to the theatre on Sunday and we are very excited, we are supporters of the arts and really enjoy going to the Salon Varietes Theatre.”

Regular performer at the theatre Martin Joseph said that he has known the members and volunteers “since I’ve been here, it’s always good to support them.”

There are just a few full-time staff working at the theatre, the rest are all volunteers who give up their own time and commitments for events and shows. They all have a variety of hats and help out in whatever ways they can for this community organisation.

Lynn Halliday said: “The fundraising is essential, that’s the way we get money in. If it wasn’t for the supporters we wouldn’t have the theatre.”

Guests enjoyed the warm weather, musical performances and stunning views from the terrace well into Friday evening!

On Sunday, August 28, The Salon Varietes tee’d off their 38th Season with a great Golf Tournament at Marbella Golf Country Club, hosted by frontman Johnny G! Supported by a fantastic selection of players from near and far, with main sponsors Euro Weekly News, Central FM, Specsavers Fuengirola and Smart Move Marbella, who all helped massively in making the event a success.

The winning pair were representing Paseo 100 Sports Bar and Restaurant in Fuengirola, playing an excellent round of golf and which much celebration at the after show on the terrace, with entertainment by Melissa Carver and Johnny G, supported by dancers Gracie and Anastasia.

Just over €3,500 was made over the weekend, which is a huge help in supporting the non-profit theatre after its summer closing period.

Box office is open from September 1, Mon-Fri 11am-2:30pm (and one hour before each show) or by calling 952 47 45 42.
