The Lichfield Garrick Community Musical 2017
Playing from Monday 31 Jul 2017
Book & lyrics by Charles Hart
Music by Howard Goodall
Directed by Tim Ford
Musical Director Angharad Sanders
Following on from the success of 2016 Community Musical The Hired Man, The Lichfield Garrick Theatre is delighted to announce 2017's Community Musical - The Dreaming, a musical version of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
With music by Howard Goodall, the composer of such well-known theme tunes as The Vicar of Dibley and Blackadder, and lyrics by Charles Hart (The Phantom of the Opera), this fabulous show was originally commissioned by the the National Youth Music Theatre in 2001 to rave reviews.
The show has a distinctly spooky edge, mixed with superb comedy and of course as you would expect form Howard Goodall some glorious tunes.
Magic, mystery and hidden secrets are revealed in this production directed by Lichfield Garrick's Artistic Director Tim Ford. It's a time for dreamers....
