FROM the austerity of wartime to the elegance of the Victorian era: the cabaret group Miscellany, based at Shepley, has little problem in providing entertainment from any era.
Last weekend they wowed an audience at Crosby Hall near Liverpool with a Victorian musical hall cabaret and only weeks before they were the stars of a Forties weekend in North Yorkshire.
Miscellany is directed by Cath Stevenson and features many of the singers and performers that she has worked with in shows around the region.
They play many events and concerts, often for charity.
The event in Liverpool was organised by the Southport Soroptimists, an organisation of professional and business women, and raised £1,500 for Breast Cancer Care.
Miscellany worked on a new talent, just for this show, old time dancing. Group regulars Marina Haigh and Gina Cook had rehearsed the team in the fancy footwork of dances such as the Veleta, the St Bernard’s Waltz and the Military Two Step, accompanied by the live sound of the Miscellany Band.
The company wore 19th century costume, as did many of the audience.
