About Mad About the Musicals
The magic of the great musicals comes to the Spa Pavilion Theatre in Felixstowe on Saturday 18 November! Voted one of the best UK shows of 2005, enjoy all the glitz and glamour from the West End stage and the bright lights of Broadway.
The production has already enjoyed sell-out dates and rave reviews as part of its 2006 tour, wowing audiences with a two-hour extravaganza of showstoppers. Hear all the great moments of the classic shows in one evening complete with a live band, singers and dancers.
During the performance you will be taken on a whistle stop tour of some of your favourite musicals such as Chicago, Jekyll and Hyde, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, We Will Rock You, Mama Mia, Little Shop of Horrors, Starlight Express and many more.
Hear the timeless melodies and unforgettable lyrics of some of the best-loved songwriters including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, Alan Boubil and Claude-Michael Schonberg. All the classics are brought together with the stunning vocal talents of a cast of five singers headed by Michael Courtney, Vicky Betterton and Eddie Dredge.
Michael Courtney made his professional debut as Joseph in the UK tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He has also starred as the lead in West Side Story, Oklahoma, and is well known to UK audiences having appeared in over a dozen pantomimes up and down the country. He is joined by Vicky Betterton whose many credits include Debbie in ITV's Peak Practice, a dancer in 2002 for Will Young and Gareth Gates on the Pop Idol tour and Eponine in Les Miserables at the New Wimbledon Theatre. Eddie Dredge joins the cast having played the lead role Billy Fisher in Billy the musical, Nick Piazza in Fame and Freddie in Mack and Mabel.
The additional ingredient that will make this show a night to remember is the comedy that runs throughout the performance. An array of songs from The Blues Brothers, Gypsy and Little Shop of Horrors are funny enough to warrant a show all of their own.
