I am so FLIPPING excited to be going into rehearsals next week for “Hey, Presto!” – a brand new production based on the book by Nadia Shireen. It will be my second show with Peaceful Lion Productions, following up last years very successful “Bringing Down The Moon”. This time around I’ve written the lyrics as well as the tunes, but fear not – you can still expect the same sophisticated blend of Sondheim, Billy Bragg, and Kanye West influences.
We’ve assembled a stonking-ly good cast, and I’m delighted to once again be working with Designer Eleanor Field, and Lighting Designer Sarah Mc Colgan – the creative dream-team I somehow tagged along with for Man To Man at the Mercury Theatre Colchester, earlier this year.
‘Presto the cat is a very talented magician, so when he and his best friend Monty the dog, join a funfair and start a magic show things look good for the duo. But fame goes to Monty’s head and soon Presto loses his friend and his show! Will true friendship prevail? Is there a touch of magic in the air?
A heart-warming tale of aspiration, friendship, adventure and a little bit of mischief accompanied by catchy songs, this is the perfect Christmas treat for everyone aged 3 and up.’
