In May 2015, Ellie Bamber opened in Maria Friedman's production of High Society at the Old Vic.
Ellie plays the role of Dinah Lord, the precocious younger sister of Kate Fleetwood's Tracy Lord.
The production opened to a host of rave reviews following the press performance on May 14th, a selection of which can be seen below. High Society performs until August 2015.
