November Show Announcement: Half a Sixpence

Yes – that’s it! We’re planning on having flash, bang, wallop of a time with the sensational Half A Sixpence.

Based on H.G. Wells semi-autobiographical novel, Kipps. It tells the story of Arthur Kipps, an over-worked orphan draper’s assistant at the turn of the last century. When Kipps unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society, it confuses everything he thought he knew about life. Watching him wrestle with his new identity is his childhood companion and not-quite girlfriend, Ann Pornick, who sees with dismay how Arthur is being made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. She is always there with helpful hints on how Arthur could improve himself and make his life richer and more meaningful, if only he would believe in himself, and listen to her. Both of these young women love Arthur – there is no doubt about that – but which should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices.

This iconic musical with timeless numbers like Flash Bang Wallop, A Proper Gentleman and the title number Half a Sixpence is not only filled with great music but will be a great opportunity for some of the iconic dance numbers we here at Geoids are famed for!

The show will be running 5th to 9th November 2019 in the Bridewell Theatre. We are incredibly excited to have this as part of our 2019 season and think it will perfectly compliment A Little Night Music. More information about auditions to follow in due course.
