Jumping for Joy – Gordon Clarkson Productions
Jumping for Joy is a wonderful afternoon of Slick, Traditional, Live Song, Dance and Comedy paying tribute to Joy Clarkson nearly 1 year on from her untimely passing.
As one half of theatrical production company Gordon Clarkson Productions, she leaves a legacy of beautiful handmade costumes, painted scenery and props, and much much more! Over the years, the company toured nationwide and presented plays, summer shows and pantomimes, most notably being the pantomime management for 5 successive, and successful years at the historic Theatre Royal, Margate.
Personally, Joy was highly thought of by all her colleagues in every job she worked in, but in particular, as Followspot Operator, at Margate Winter Gardens, Queens Hall, and Granville Ramsgate for many years.
The performance on Sunday 7th January at 2.30pm will feature some of Joy’s show business friends and colleagues, all of whom are giving their services for free in order for all the proceeds to go to the charities who helped Joy and Gordon through the dark days of her illness, and beyond: Macmillan, The Royal Variety Charity, The Royal Theatrical Fund, The Equity Benevolent Fund, and The Elizabeth Finn/Turn2Us Charity.
Tickets are only £10 and are available from the Winter Gardens Box Office on 01843 292795
