Why go and see it?

Having rehearsed for two weeks from Mon 5 Aug, young people will be taking over our main stage to create this spectacular production!

Written as a vehicle for British pop star Tommy Steele, it historically opened here in Wimbledon for its worldwide premiere before heading for a record-breaking West End transfer. Filled to the brim with well-loved songs such as, Money to Burn, Half a Sixpence and the high-energy fan favourite Flash Bang Wallop.

Production shot

Join Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper's assistant at the turn of the last century, as he unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society. His childhood companion, Ann Pornick, watches with dismay as Arthur is made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. Both young women undoubtedly love Arthur - but which of them should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices.
