BETTY BLUE EYES| Rehearsals Begin

We have just had a brilliant first rehearsal for the hilarious musical BETTY BLUE EYES with music from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (The Wind in the Willows, Mary Poppins, Half A Sixpence) and we already absolutely love this show. Based on Alan Bennett’s ‘A Private Function’ it is full of wit, love and some very apt commentary on austerity in post-war Britain!

If you would like to join us on stage or backstage for Betty Blue Eyes then we would love to have you! Come along on Tuesday 13 December at 7.45pm to the music block of Newstead Wood School, Avebury Road, Orpington to hear more about the show, sing some songs and learn about prinicpal role auditions!

Iolanthe!

We are thrilled to be starting work on our next production, the classic Gilbert and Sullivan show, Iolanthe! Coming to The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks 27th – 29th November 2014!

Directed by Clive Bebee with Musical Direction from Daniel Beach.

Scandal in Parliament (nothing new there then).  It’s the swinging 1960s and Strephon Ward a common garden park keeper, has been dragged down into a scandal.  His beautiful girlfriend Phyllis, a deck chair attendant, is being courted by half the House of Lords. Even the Lord Chancellor is captivated by her charms. What no one knows is, Strephon is half a fairy and his mother, Iolanthe, (recently pardoned by the Fairy Queen for marrying a mortal 25 years earlier) all her sisters and aunts never grow old. Then double scandal he is discovered comforting a very young looking girl who is his mother in reality and his dreams of happiness are shattered.

Join Petts Wood Operatic Society for a new ‘Twist’ and ‘Shout’ on a G&S Classic with all the original music and words but a production based on the ‘Profumo affair’ with Mary Quant inspired fairies, sharp suited lords and a Lord Chancellor with a magic teddy bear.

First rehearsals (open to all): 24th June at 7:45pm and 1st July at 8:15pm at Newstead Wood School, Avebury Road, Orpington. Follow the signs for Bromley Tennis Centre and you will see our rehearsal room (the music block) on your right. There is plenty of parking available just outside.
