York St John Musical Production Society Presents Sweet Charity, a musical with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and book by Neil Simon. It is based on Federico Fellini's screenplay for Nights of Cabiria. However, where Fellini's black-and-white Italian film concerns the romantic ups-and-downs of an ever-hopeful prostitute, in the musical the central character is a dancer-for-hire at a Times Square dance hall.

The musical boasts huge hits such as Big Spender and If My Friends Could See Me Now as well as many more well known songs.

The main character Charity works at a dance club where she has seen only the dark side of life through bad relationships. One day she meets Oscar and believes her luck has changed. When things turn sour, Charity stays sweet and hopeful that someday her ideals will materialize. The show has been created by our creative team: Director – Michael Peck; Choreographer – Naomi Prescott; MD/Conductor – Jonathan Rees; AMD - Lauren Smith

It’s a musical for every one of all ages. So grab your tickets, warm up your vocals and come join us for what will be a fantastic show!

Sing-a-long-a Pirates-of Penzance

Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company

Saturday 19 March 2011

Whether it's the patter of I am the very model of a modern Major-General, the triumphant shouts of Oh, better far to live and die ...I am a pirate king or the classic comedy policemen in When the foeman bares his steel there can't be many people who haven't heard and loved a song from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance. A hit with audiences since it's premiere 131 years ago, the tale of Frederic, an apprentice pirate, who falls in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, is returning to York this March with a twist.

Sing-a-long-a-Pirates of Penzance will provide an evening of entertainment for everyone. Performed by Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company, this semi staged production, with narration encourages audience participation with all the choruses. Song sheets will be provided but if you have your own score you are welcome to bring it along. An excellent way to enjoy this popular production, suitable for all ages.
