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.

Auditions for Love Sucks: An Alternative Valentine’s Cabaret

Valentine’s Day is a saccharine sweet Hallmark holiday and it’s easy to pull together a load of love songs to celebrate it.

That doesn’t always make for the most interesting of cabarets.

So here at Geoids we have decided to put together our own, alternative, look at the holiday and take a look at love, romance, sex and relationships from another angle, exploring unconventional relationships; times where love goes wrong; contradictory emotions that are wrapped up with love. We’re not all out cynics, we promise, we just want to bring a bit of dry humour to the usual view of the holiday.

The team have plenty of ideas but will be working in collaboration with the cast to draw chosen songs together into a cohesive performance. We are very much open to suggestions from performers as to what songs should make the set list. We would be interested to include any genre of music (from show tunes, to folk songs, to pop music) to create a wholly original show that plays to the strengths of those who are cast.

For more information about the show and more details on performances please see our Audition Notice.

Auditions will take place on Monday 3 December at Rag Factory and Tuesday 4 December at  City Lit building next to the Bridewell Theatre. Auditions are split into slots with more information in the Audition Notice, but you must email us at lovesucks@geoidsmt.co.uk to book your slot.
