Celebrated & Underrated

An evening of Oscar treasures and hidden gems

When two worlds collide: the wonderful world of Oscar-winning best original songs meets the world of superb songs from short-lived musicals. In a programme packed full of tales, tunes and toe-tapping showstoppers, there will be something for everyone – from full-on company numbers to heart-rending ballads; from classic musical medleys to dramatic duets, solos, duets, trios, quartets … and even songs with muppets and whales!

 

This show has songs from Oscar-winning films such as Oliver, My Fair Lady, A Star is Born, Dirty Dancing and The Lion King as well as songs by award-winning writers such as Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz and Andrew Lloyd Webber! We’ll take you ‘Over the Rainbow’, ‘Into the West’ and back to Statten Island where, like ‘Working Girl’, you can ‘Let the River Run’!

 

So, come along and audition for this superb ensemble show which will be performed at The Ridgeway Centre from Wednesday, 29th April – Friday 1st May 2020.

In October 2020 We’re really excited to be producing Jesus Christ Superstar in October, from 14th to 17th October at Stantonbury Theatre. This rock musical about Jesus, Judas and the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion has been inspiring people since its release in 1970.

 

We’re casting the net wide to find a great cast - we’re open for you to audition for parts regardless of gender, so there will be plenty for everyone to do and lots of opportunities to be part of the show. We’ll release details of auditions in late spring, so look out for those!
