Product Description

This brilliant and innovative show, set in Victorian times, traces the steps of Olivia, from downtrodden orphan to star of the stage. On her journey to the bright lights of London, she is befriended by Eliza Doolittle (from "My Fair Lady") and, after a series of adventures, becomes a singer in a new Gilbert and Sullivan show, thanks to the unlikely assistance of Fagin and The Artful Dodger.

Eliza and the flower-sellers are joined by other major female roles and with orphans, Poor School girls and essential chorus work, you will have no difficulty in casting this female-orientated show.

The boys, however, are not overlooked, with splendid cameos for George Bernard Shaw, Ebenezer Scrooge, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. This feel-good show abounds with Malcolm Sircoms well-known wit and humour, both in the script and the songs which are catchy, lyrical, and full of gusto, as well as advancing the story-line.

Watch out for an outbreak of audience handkerchiefs in the final scene! Then be prepared for a great reception for this wonderful musical.

A CD of backing tracks is available. (This CD includes ALL Songs and Incidental Music in the order you need them. Ideal for rehearsals! Also enables production and direction to take place without specialist musical expertise.) A CD of Vocal Tracks is also available for learning the songs.

Contains 35 speaking roles (can be easily reduced to 23 speaking roles if necessary). Flexible cast size to suit your group numbers, from 40 actors upwards. Very easy to costume and stage. Full Production Notes are included in the Script. Age range: Key Stages 3/4 and 16+ Production (11-18 years).

Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
