St Alphege Musical Production Society (STAMPS) are on the lookout for talented singers and dancers, for their November production of Crazy For You.
This wonderful Gershwin musical follows the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930s playboy whose dream in life is to dance. This high energy comedy includes mistaken identity, plot twists, fabulous dance numbers and classic Gershwin music including I Got Rhythm, Embraceable You and Someone To Watch Over Me.
So, if you can sing, dance and are free on Wednesdays before and during the first week of November, then you could be the man or woman STAMPS want. Tap dancing workshops and a show introduction begins on 15 April, 7.30pm at Oliver Bird Hall (see map below).
