Worcestershire based theatre company Starbuck Theatre Company are bringing a UK Premiere to the Norbury Theatre in Droitwich this February.
The Guide To Being Single is a refreshing take on the contemporary musical, and follows on from the company’s successful mini tour of I Love You Because in 2015.
The Guide To Being Single has previously only been performed in Chicago and in New York in July 2015 and this has allowed the company actors to not just take on new characters but to also originate them for a UK audience.
Artistic Director Sarah Pavlovs says:
"This has been such an exciting time for the company. This show has only been performed in two cities in America, and so to be given this opportunity to be the first company in the UK to stage this show is something extra special for us, and for Worcestershire. The writers, Alexi Kovin and Kaitlin Gilgenbach, have been hugely supportive from our first contact with them about doing the show, and Kaitlin is even flying over from Chicago to see it. There is a six piece band under the leadership of our MD Chris Corcoran, and the cast is made up of seven Midland’s based actors who are all tremendously talented and have been a joy to work with – we’ve had so many laughs in rehearsals and now we just can’t wait to share this new piece of theatre with an audience.’
With her company Sarah Pavlovs has wanted to bring new musical theatre to community venues at affordable prices so that a wider audience can get to hear and know new writers, without having to travel to the larger cities in the UK. The show is a musical comedy about unlucky in love twenty-somethings who conclude that the solution to their relationship problems is to stay single, as they mingle through the bars of Wrigleyville. “The Guide to Being Single,” a new book from an anonymous author, gives you twenty-five simple rules for screwing without getting screwed: You never call or text. You always go to their place. And most importantly, you never break the rules. But what if the fun of rules is breaking them?
If you’ve ever been in love, fallen out of love, wanted to date or wanted to be single – this show is for you! The Guide To Being Single runs at the Norbury Theatre from 18 - 20 February, for more information and to book tickets call 01905 770154 or book online here. Tickets £12/ £9 concessions.
Please note: Due to some of the content, this show it is recommended for those over the age of 14.
