ASHBEIAN MUSICAL THEATRE GROUP NEWS

One down, one to go – and then a special invitation!

It’s hard to think that by the time you read this, we will have finished our first production of the season (Aladdin), and will be just a few weeks away from our second, Anything Goes!

As usual with our rehearsals, we are having a wonderful time and everyone is excited about show week already! Anything Goes is set aboard the SS American, which sets sail from 5th-9th April at our glorious theatre home, the 400 Hall at Repton School. As with all AMTG shows, we are proud to work with David, Alan and Leanne who have been our production team for several years, and their attention to detail means our audiences can expect the usual standard of show – as near professional as you can get from an amateur society.

With fabulous Cole Porter songs, including Blow, Gabriel Blow, It’s De-Lovely, Friendship, I get a kick out of you, and of course Anything Goes, this show is a musical delight. There is plenty of dancing, including great tap numbers, and AMTG are joined by fabulous dancers from Dance Network who play three of Reno Sweeney’s Angels.

Our Honorary Patron is Sally Ann Triplett, leading lady in many West End and Broadway productions. Sally Ann played Reno Sweeney at Drury Lane in the last professional revival of Anything Goes, with John Barrowman as Billy Crocker, and since then she has had a special relationship with AMTG, including coming to see our shows.

After the hard work of two productions, AMTG will then be holding their second Swing Ball on Saturday 28th May. Last year’s Ball was a huge success, and with live music from the Leicester Big Band again, this event is expected to sell out quickly. For more information please contact the Box Office.
