THE PERILS AND PLEASURES OF THE ACTING PROFESSION
FROM WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE TO WEST END MUSICALS
This sparkling musical revue reveals the pleasures and perils of ‘Life Upon the Wicked Stage’: intimidating auditions, noisy audiences, scathing critics, demanding divas, fearsome landladies and legendary theatrical digs!
The show features classic songs about the theatre from the pens of Noël Coward, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern including: ‘Another Op’nin’, Another Show’, Everything’s Coming Up Roses’, ‘The Night I Appeared as Macbeth’, ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare’, ‘Don't Put Your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs Worthington’ and of course 'No Business Like Showbusiness’.
The show started life at the Redgrave Theatre, Bristol, and has since played sell-out shows at Bristol Old Vic, Circomedia, the Bloxham Literature Festival, the Royal Automobile Club, the Camden Festival and on Swan Hellenic's cruise ship Minerva.
