Vera Lynn raised spirits with her BBC radio show 'Sincerely Yours' and Gracie Fields raised smiles with her films and monologues. Marina pays tribute to these women and many others with her 'Ladies of the Chorus' show. Performing tributes as Ethel Merman, Marilyn Monroe and Ella Fitzgerald. Fancy a sing-a-long? This is the part where audience participation is encouraged! We all know the words (or we should!) so let's raise the roof!
