Musical extravaganza to return to Sheringham Little Theatre
PUBLISHED: 09:00 21 February 2013
The curtain is set to rise once more on Another Night at the Musicals.
Once again, young performers will be stepping into the spotlight at Sheringham Little Theatre to offer a toe-tapping evening of song, dance and musical fun.
Director Michelle Thompson has created a sensational night of entertainment, showcasing talent from the area through some of the best-loved musicals of all time.
“A Night at the Musicals was so successful last time that all three shows sold out,” she said. “And the feedback from those watching was also that they loved it - so we decided to put on a similar evening.”
Being staged tomorrow and Saturday, the colourful production has been written, directed and choreographed by Michelle.
Another Night at the Musicals is being performed at 7.30pm on both nights, with a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday.
Tickets cost £6 or £5 and for more information call the box office on 01263 822347 or visit www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com
It was originally performed last year.
The director added: “We have scenes from the likes of Oliver! High Society, Chicago and Les Miserables, which is timely of course because of the film.
“We also have a Judy Garland medley, which should be fun, and a little bit of Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom of the Opera.”
Michelle, who is currently living and working in London as a freelance director, has included her own material in the show as well.
She said: “There are some extra scenes I have written with a 1950s feel that bring it all together very nicely. “The idea is that we have something in there for everyone – from the classic musicals through to the more modern ones.
“We also want to demonstrate just how wonderful the talent we have here in North Norfolk is.
“Some of these performers are really very special and we have managed to achieve a great balance; some are fabulous dancers while other can sing beautifully.”
And she added: “So much of the behind the scenes work is also being done with the help of young people. This looks set to be a superb show that theatre-goers will enjoy as much as they did last year.”
-In conjunction with the show, a £12 musical theatre workshop at Sheringham Theatre will be held for eight to 12 year olds on Saturday, between 10am and 1pm.
The youngsters will learn a musical theatre song to perform at the 2.30pm matinee show, also on Saturday. The £12 cost includes a free show ticket for the participant.
