Sister Act Coming Soon

4th May 2019

In Autumn 2019 we are getting back into the habit with our production of Sister Act!

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Join us at our opening meeting on the 21st May to learn more about this fantastic show, meet the production team and pick up audition pieces!

One Week Until Pippin 

24th April 2019

We have been working hard in the rehearsal room and it is almost time to bring you the magic and merriment of Pippin!

Ambitious young man Pippin longs to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfilment. Setting out on his quest to be something more than ordinary, Pippin learns of the horrors of war, the temptations of sex and the intrigues of political power. And through it all the Leading Player and her troop are there, helping him on his way towards that one extraordinary, exceptional act of glory.

With its infectious and unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden) and its iconic choreography by Bob Fosse, Pippin is both a humorous allegory about growing up and a dark ale o the dangers of false appearances that has thrilled audiences since the original production in 1973. The most recent Broadway revival swept the New York awards circuit, including winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

 

Tickets are available now at www.ticketsource.co.uk/lyricplayers
