Thoroughly Modern Millie

18 - 23 February

Witham Operatic Workshop

Thoroughly Modern Millie

By Richard Morris, Dick Scanlan and Jeanine Tesori

New York,1922. Millie Dillmount arrives from Kansas in search of a new life. Her plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.
Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.

Blitz

Blitz

By Lionel Bart

In 1940 the East End of London is taking a terrible pounding from Hitler's bombs. Life, however, goes on, centring around the matriarchal Mrs. Blitztein and her large family, especially her petty-criminal son Harry and her beautiful daughter Carol. They all fight their own particular battles with neighbours and authorities alike through many situations – some humorous, some tragic – and eventually find their own individual peace.
Providing scope for a large cast, it features many hit songs, including The Day After Tomorrow, Who's This Geezer Hitler? and Mums and Dads.

Witham Dramatic Club

The Reunion

By Peter Gordon

It’s good to meet up with old friends . . . or perhaps not!
When Nigel arranges a reunion in the back room of a pub, he is optimistic of a good turnout. Whilst the numbers disappoint him, he soon has his hands full when a motley middle-aged threesome turn up, bringing with them assorted wives, girlfriends, prejudices, and resentments that have simmered for the last twenty-five years. Comedy and confusion combine in this hilarious but poignant story of ‘small people’ in a ‘big world’.

  • Performances start at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm
  • Tickets £12.50. Senior Citizens and Children under 16 £10.50 (Wed. and Thurs. only)

The Essex Group

Annie Warbucks

Book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin.

All the ingredients that made Annie so successful are here once again, with an old-fashioned romance thrown in for good measure. The action picks up right where Annie leaves off, when Child Welfare Commissioner Harriet Doyle arrives on the scene to inform Daddy Warbucks he must marry in sixty days so the newly adopted Annie can have a proper mother. In the end, Daddy Warbucks' whirlwind search for a fitting bride uncovers not only a plot by Doyle and her daughter to strip him of his fortune, but also his true feelings for Grace Farrell.

Iolanthe

By Gilbert & Sullivan
