LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION.  Award- winning King’s Lynn Players return to the Guildhall with the both haunting and desperately sad, Sunset Boulevard which revolves around the former star of the silent screen era, Norma Desmond. Aging and largely forgotten, she lives in her dilapidated mansion in Hollywood with her butler and chauffeur, Max. Lost in her memories, she is stirred into action when struggling screenwriter, Joe Gillis, suddenly enters her home and her life. Featuring showstoppers ‘With One Look’, ‘The Perfect Year’ and the title track ‘Sunset Boulevard’ this is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best scores and is a first for West Norfolk.
