Steve Cassidy loves performing at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre along with his wonderful and versatile band. They will be joined by the children from St George’s School who made an impact last year when appearing with Steve. He was Headteacher at St George’s and still helps the children’s choir each week at the school.

Carol Addy is a delightful singer who often sings accompanied by Steve Flanagan, the bands guitarist, at gigs in the city. She will bring her own magic to the evening.

Las Vegas Ken Sanderson frequently appears with Steve’s band on their concerts; audiences love his unique brand of entertainment.

Mick Hull will add his ukulele virtuosity and singing voice to the night.

One Man Two Guvnors

Richard Bean's award-winning smash-hit in London and on Broadway

Pick Me Up Theatre

Wednesday 11 May to Sunday 15 May 2016

Richard Bean's award-winning One Man, Two Guvnors – a smash-hit in London and on Broadway – takes a classic Italian comedy by Goldoni and turns it into a riotous British farce full of slapstick, songs and laugh-out-loud one-liners.

Sacked from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall finds employment with small-time East End gangster Roscoe – who's actually Roscoe's twin sister Rachel in disguise. Roscoe has been killed by Rachel's boyfriend – upper-class twit Stanley. Ever-hungry Francis spots the opportunity for another meal ticket by taking on a second job working for Stanley. And, of course, neither Stanley nor Rachel are aware that they are both employing the same man as their inefficient minder. Confused? It doesn't matter. From start to finish it's a feast of visual and verbal humour.

The original production, starring James Cordon, opened to rave reviews at the National Theatre in 2011, and went on to the West End and Broadway.

Pick Me Up's cast includes Phil Grainger as Francis Henshall, James Potter as Stanley Stubbers, Mick Liversidge as Alfie, Maya Bartley O'Dea as Rachel Crabbe, Maya Tether as Dolly, Nick Lewis as Charlie Clench, Holly Surtees-Smith as Pauline Clench and Sam Baxter as Alan Dangle with live music from The Craze led by James Wood.
