IT was a vibrant and colourful night's entertainment, as the 2014 Tab production of Copacabana trod the boards at Brierley Hill's Civic Hall.

Since 1947, and therefore over 67 consecutive years, the Tab Operatic Company have consistently rolled out an evening to remember with performances on stage that thoroughly entertain, and even after stripping away the sparkle and the glamour in this show, there was still a lot to admire.

There was song, dance, humour, an outstanding chorus, or in this case the Copa boys and girls, whose choreography was outstanding, and a lead pair of Fleur Petford as Lola La Mar the showgirl, and Mitchell Bastable as Tony, the young aspiring song writer.

Tony's writing of the famous Barry Manilow number "Copacabana" throughout the show kept the audience on their toes, until at last, like a cork popping on a champagne bottle, the full version was played out at the end of the night's performance to terrific applause.
