We start our UK tour from September 2021 with the magical ‘Ça C’est Paris’

Set-in post-war France ‘Ça C’est Paris’ is a romantic story between two young people, a country boy ‘Gaston’ and the charming Parisian ‘Blanche’ who meet for the first time to begin their musical adventures through the heart of Paris. Joining them on their journey will be Bistrot owner charismatic Alain who will assistance in bringing the couple together and show the essence of love and compassion.

This show has great moments of emotions and laughter thanks to our two main characters “Blanche and Gaston”, an almost ordinary couple …
