Family Rondo

Music and Lyrics by Vera Heade
Book and additional Lyrics by Dennis Atkinson


When two young children discover some old photographs hidden in the drawer of an old desk, a wonderful yet sad tale of past lives is brought to life. Set over a time span of many years we see the tale unfold of Master Frederick and his father, once Lord and master of the manor. When Master Frederick fails in love with a beautiful village girl by the name of Alicia, he is faced with a heartbreaking ultimatum; either leave Alicia or leave his family. Torn by love, Master Frederick and Alicia leave for Australia. Several years later, a young stranger arrives on the scene enquiring about the Old Manor and is eventually revealed as being the son of Master Frederick. John, (the son), vows to buy back the Manor and return it to its rightful owner, Master Frederick
