Capriol films write: “In Love with Alma Cogan is an independent British feature film with music, set on and around Cromer Pier in North Norfolk. This gentle romantic comedy tells the story of Norman, the manager of the theatre on the pier at a once grand East Coast holiday resort. Norman has worked at the theatre all his life and despite the efforts of Sandra, his long- serving and suffering assistant, he will not accept that the local council, which owns the theatre may be serious about putting it into the hands of commercial management.

“As the plot unfolds, Norman realises that it may be time to move on and put behind him the ghost of the fifties and sixties singing star Alma Cogan, who he feels has overshadowed his life since he met her one night over forty years ago. He and Sandra leave the theatre, she to ‘take flight’ and fulfil her dream of being a professional singer and he to be with her.”

Welsh-born Catrine Kirkman, who plays Alma in this independent film, grew up in Stroud and was a member of the Cheltenham Opera Group. She then went on to The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a number of acclaimed operatic roles.
