Berwick Opera are proud to announce our Spring 2015 show – The Wizard of Oz.
Dates are to be confirmed.
The Wizard of Oz is a musical based on the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, with a book adapted by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jeremy Sams. The musical uses the Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg songs from the film and includes some new songs and additional music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and additional lyrics by Tim Rice.
Exciting news… See you there!
Berwick Opera are proud to announce our Autumn show – Steel Magnolias.
Date to be confirmed.
Steel Magnolias is a comedy–drama play about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. Written by Robert Harling, based on his experience with his sister’s death. The title suggests the “female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel”. The magnolia specifically references a magnolia tree they are arguing about at the beginning
Following our sell out production of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast in March 2013, We are proud to present the rootin’ tootin’ shootin’ musical Calamity Jane!
In this hilarious comedy, Western tomboy, “Calam” dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago.
Calamity Jane features riotous song and dance numbers including Deadwood Stage, Windy City and I Can Do Without You. There are also tender moments, too such as Black Hills of Dakota and, of course, Secret Love (the song made famous by Doris Day).
Come and join us for this toe-tapping, feel good musical…you will be humming the tunes all the way home!
