Belgrade Theatre and Big Broad Productions present CRUSH, the brand new musical comedy, which will premiere at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry playing from Friday 4 to Saturday 19 September 2015.
Starring Rosemary Ashe, Sara Crowe and Solihull’s Kirsty Malpass, the show is presented by a creative team whose hit stage and screen work includes Waterloo Road, Footballers’ Wives, Bad Girls: The Musical, The Sound of Music and La Cage Aux Folles. The production also features Solihull’s Eleanor Brown as Judith.
“This is an S.O.S. message. Please Save Our School from imminent catastrophe.”
It’s 1963 and Dame Dorothea Dosserdale School for Girls has a proud tradition of fostering free spirits from all walks of life - so it’s a crushing blow when the new Headmistress turns out to be a tyrant with strict Victorian values.
Giving a new twist to the world of Mallory Towers and The Girl’s Own Annual, with lashings of charm and toe-tapping tunes, Crush is a coming-of-age romp that celebrates schoolgirl friendships and fighting for what you believe in!
Prepare for riotous routines and hockey sticks to the fore as our girls battle to save their school – and find true love - in this smashing musical comedy.
Rosemary Ashe plays Miss Bleacher, Sara Crowe plays Miss Austin and Kirsty Malpass plays Miss Givings. The cast also includes Eleanor Brown as Judith, Stephanie Clift as Susan, Emma Harrold as Lavinia, Catherine Hayworth as Annabel, James Meunier as Dorian, Brianna Ogunbawo as Daimler, Georgia Oldman as Brenda and Charlotte Miranda-Smith as Camilla.
CRUSH is written by Maureen Chadwick, with music and lyrics by Kath Gotts, orchestrations and musical supervision by Steve Edis and directed by Anna Linstrum.
