Half A Sixpence – Week 9!

I think it’s safe to say that after this week’s rehearsals, we’ve all got ‘Money to Burn – Part Two’ on the brain.

This week’s rehearsals were FULL ON – we sang, we danced, we banjoed and the results are looking phenomenal. Luckily, the cast are loving every minute because the energy needed for this number is quite extraordinary. However, we are taking on the challenge with gusto! Who knew that we would all be so good at drinking and dancing in the pub?

The previous night also had some magical moments all of its own. ‘Joy of the Theatre’ is one of those addictive songs and as you can see, the cast involved have been working hard to master the slick, energetic choreography that Louisa presented them with. Did I mention that this week’s rehearsal needed lots of energy?!

Half A Sixpence – Week 8!

Another week has flown by and what a week it was! Exhausting and fun in equal measure, we have been working hard on two of the biggest dance numbers in Act One – ‘Proper Gentlemen’ and ‘Money to Burn – part 2’.

The cast have well and truly dusted off their dance shoes and are on top form, pulling out all the stops to produce some impressive partner lifts, banjo dancing and upper class motor driving!

This week has been especially exciting as we can now announce that our tickets are live for purchasing!

We want everyone to come and see this fantastic show so book early to ensure you don’t miss out!

Half A Sixpence Rehearsals – Week 7!

Who doesn’t love a garden party? We certainly do! And that’s been exactly the focus of this week’s rehearsals, piecing together the gorgeous and very classy musical number “If the Rain’s Got to Fall”. The number concludes the end of Act One of ‘Kipps: Half A Sixpence’ at a rather dramatic garden party, leaving Kipps in a bit of an awkward situation.

Enthusiasm has been at all time high this week. Everyone has put on their ‘posh’ faces and dancing shoes this week, creating this spectacular feast for the eyes. We’ve got lifts, we’ve got summer sports and we’ve got turning around a maypole – it’s been fantastic! I think everyone has truly embraced their ‘posh’ side.

It will be a true treat to see this number in its full glory with props and costumes. Do come along and join us! I’d hate for you to miss out.

Doris Day, a tribute

Following the sad news today that Doris Day has passed away, it makes Barnstormers performances this week of the stage adaptation of one of her most famous musical films “Calamity Jane” especially poignant.

We are proud and honoured to be paying tribute to a very talented and much loved musical performer.
