Recently we had the fantastic opportunity to bring socially distanced live theatre to the Beeches Nursing Home. “The Broads” Play was written by local playwright and actress Maria Connolly for people living in isolation.
The 50 minute live musical is based on the life stories of Hollywood legends: Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Bette Midler.
Maria Connolly played the role of Judy Garland, Roisin Gallagher played Marilyn Monroe, Christina Nelson played Bette Midler and the live music was provided by Richard Clements, accompanied by our very own Mark McKibbin on guitar.
The act was totally self contained and did not require access to the Home as they performed in our garden/patio area and residents could enjoy the show from the comfort of the dining room.
As you can see from our photographs the act went down really well and residents loved singing along to many of the hit songs from the musicals.
