SBF Rising Star

Read Rye-Llewellyn Carpenter's interview
SBF's latest Rising Star is:

Read Rye-Llewellyn's Meet the Rising Star interview...

Meet SBF Member, Rye-Llewellyn Carpenter who in 2012 joined Bonheur at the Lido de Paris, as a Bluebell Dancer!
This alone represents a dream come true for Rye, but what makes it even more remarkable is that she has actually set an unprecedented record in the history of the Lido. Rye, in fact, is the first and, so far, only case in the world famous Parisian Corps de Ballet, of being a 2nd Generation Bluebell with both parents as former Lido dancers: Principal Dancer, Rachel Davies and Kelly Boy Dancer, Eric Carpenter.

We interviewed Rye to find out what it feels like to be following in her parents' footsteps...
"Bluebell Forever!" REUNION!!!

Lido, Paris Start spreading... the News...

SBF is thrilled to be organising, along with the Lido, the 2nd Bluebell Girl & Kelly Boy Reunion in Paris. Following your indication from the survey SBF carried out in the last issue of SBF News, a staggering 95% of replies requested for the Reunion to be held after the start of the new production, which at the moment is in the process of preparation and will be opening in 2015. Here's to the 'Bluebells Forever!' Reunion!!!
We are working with the Lido on the details and they will be released on ShowBiz Friends ASAP.

Signing up for the Reunion will only be possible through SBF!

The Lido have asked us to convey to all SBF Members, that the Bluebells will always continue to be part of the Lido productions. That's what has given us the inspiration to name the Reunion:

"B L U E B E L L S † F O R E V E R !"

In the meantime, if you have any suggestions of what you would like to do/see on this special day, please CLICK HERE and let us know your thoughts!

SBF's deepest condolences to Joan's family and friends.
