This modern world does not always seem the place for men of style and vigour. Men with a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm. Men who own tap shoes. Crooners follows the story of three British gentlemen who, by their very nature, exude the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish. By the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics are adopted quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy, tongue firmly in cheek, and an outrageous injection of big band swing. Featuring the outstanding and uncompromising live, on stage musicianship of the nine-piece band The Mini Big Band, these Crooners feature songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole and Bobby Darin. Expect some Lady is a Tramp, Come Fly With Me, L.O.V.E., When You're Smiling, Fly Me To The Moon, Beyond The Sea, Mac The Knife and many more.
Hairspray tells the story of geeky teen Tracy Turnblad - a big girl with a big heart, big dreams, a big stage mother and even bigger hair - who finds celebrity on TV dance programme. Can Tracy get the guy and still have time to change the world?
Based on the novel and the hit movie of the same name, Legally Blonde Jr chronicles the journey of the famously perky Elle Woods, a fashion savvy, UCLA sorority girl who finds her life turned upside down when she is dumped by her boyfriend Warren. In an effort to prove to Warren that there's more to her than meets the eye, she follows him to Harvard Law, where she struggles to fit in and do well. Ultimately, she defies expectations and manages to stay true to her delightfully pink personality.
Following on from last year's hit Rent and previous hits such as Fame and We Will Rock You, musical theatre students from Mechanics' Performing Arts now present Legally Blonde Jr.
This performance takes place at the Mechanics Theatre Wakefield College
