Following on from the success of 42nd Street
York Light Opera Company
Tuesday 23 June to Saturday 27 June 2009
The Likes of Us was the first collaboration between Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rice, before their success with Joseph. The show is on limited release to amateur companies in celebration of Andrew's 60th birthday.
It is then expected to open professionally in London's West End.
Reminiscent of Oliver! The Likes of Us tells the story of philanthropist Dr Thomas Barnardo. A medical student bound for China to work as a medical missionary, Barnardo discovers the appalling conditions of the poor children of London and decides to stay in England to care for them.
With a host of catchy tunes and excellent lyrics, this is a show which will delight all the family — don't miss it!
