The smash-hit musical HALF A SIXPENCE is going out with a Flash, Bang, Wallop after extending for the final time until 2 Sept!
Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper's assistant at the turn of the last century, 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.
Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards 2017 including Best Actor in a Musical (Charlie Stemp), this award winning musical contains one of 'the top 10 ecstatic musical showstoppers of the last 70 years which spreads delirium from the stage into the auditorium' and 'has the key quality any musical needs: a moment of pure ecstasy' (Michael Billington, The Guardian).
The Half A Sixpence cast features newcomers Charlie Stemp as 'Arthur Kipps' and Devon-Elise Johnson as 'Ann Pornick' - alongside three times Olivier-nominated actress Emma Williams as 'Helen Walsingham' and Vivien Parry as 'Mrs Walsingham'.
This is a completely fresh adaptation which reunites book-writer Julian Fellowes (Oscar-winning screenwriter and creator of Downton Abbey) with songwriting duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The score is inspired by and features several of composer David Heneker’s original songs from Half A Sixpence, including ‘Flash Bang Wallop’ and ‘Half A Sixpence’.
