Trial by Jury, plus other Gilbert and Sullivan Favourites
By Gilbert & Sullivan
Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company
Saturday 6 April 2013
Trial by Jury is set in the Court of the Exchequer and involves a breach of promise case, as Edwin refuses to marry Angelina, having pledged to do so. A novel solution to the problem is reached and the ‘trial’ ends in a mood of general rejoicing.
The second act will contain a selection of other Gilbert and Sullivan musical favourites.
Written by W. S. Gilbert and composed by Sir Arthur Sullivan.
Me and My Girl
The award-winning, smash hit musical
York Musical Theatre Company
Tuesday 9 April to Saturday 13 April 2013
This lively and fun rags-to-riches musical follows cheeky and loveable cockney Bill Snibson as he discovers he’s the heir to an Earldom, but only if he is groomed to perfection and breaks up with his cockney girl Sally. Will Bill be polished into a proper English gent and strike it rich? And will he get to keep his girl?
Following its Olivier Award-winning run in the West End with a script revived by Stephen Fry, this cheerful show features songs to raise the spirits including Leaning on a Lamp Post, Me and My Girl, The Sun Has Got His Hat On and the much loved classic Lambeth Walk. It’s going to be a right ol’ knees up!
By Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber
Pick Me Up Theatre
Tuesday 16 April to Saturday 20 April 2013
Pick Me Up Theatre present the York Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s classic musical Evita. The story follows the life of Argentine political leader Eva Peron, the second wife of Argentinian president Juan Peron, her early life, rise to power, charity work and eventual death from cancer at the age of 33.
Evita will be performed from April 16-20 at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre.
The story follows Evita's early life, rise to power, charity work, and eventual death. Evita began as a rock opera concept album released in 1976, featuring Julie Covington and Barbara Dickson. Its success led to productions in London's West End in 1978, and on Broadway a year later, both of which enjoyed considerable success. A major 1996 film of the musical starred Madonna and Antonio Banderas. In 2006, the musical was revived in London with Elena Roger, the first Argentinian actress to play the title role. This award-winning production transferred to Broadway in 2011 co-starring Ricky Martin as Che and Michael Cerveris as Juan Peron.
Guys and Dolls
New Earswick Musicals
Wednesday 24 April to Saturday 27 April 2013
New York is coming to York in 2013, as New Earswick Musical Society perform the wonderful Guys and Dolls
Set in 1930’s New York at a time when gangsters ruled the underworld, prohibition was the law, and sinners and god fearing citizens lived and worked together in the mean streets.
Come and meet the cool characters of the city, Sky Masterton, Nathan Detroit and Nicely Nicely, not forgetting the glamorous Miss Adelaide and straight-laced missionary Sergeant Sarah Brown.
Add in some memorable songs such as, Luck be a Lady, the chirpy A Bushel and a Peck, the romantic I have never loved before and of course the great rollicking chorus number Sit down you’re rocking the boat.
Like Father Like Son
