Tuesday 20th July – Sunday 29th August 2021
We’re so excited to showcase the wonderful show that is Half A Sixpence in our open-air theatre in 2021. Book your tickets now to secure your seats!
Half A Sixpence’ is the delightful British musical comedy packed with exuberant choreography, a myriad of mirth, colourful costumes and show-stopping numbers including ‘Flash, Bang, Wallop!’, ‘Money to Burn’ and of course ‘Half A Sixpence’.
Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper’s assistant at the turn of the last century, is a charming but ordinary young man who, along with his fellow apprentices, dreams of a better and more fulfilling world. When Kipps unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society, it confuses everything he thought he knew about life. His childhood companion, Ann Pornick, watches with dismay as Arthur is made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. Helen 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. Undoubtedly both young women love Arthur – but which of them 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 new Award-winning stage version, inspired by HG Wells’ semi-autobiographical book Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul, is a completely fresh adaptation for the modern age and a charming tale with a happy ending that will delight audiences both young and old!
