For over 50 years Louth Playgoers have presented musicals which have given all actors, singers and dancers alike a chance to perform together on-stage and this year is no different.
This May Louth Playgoers brings you The King and I, based on a true-life epic story put alongside inspiring music and lyrics which have become internationally known and loved.
The show is known for its extravagant costumes and elaborate sets together with exciting choreography.
The cast is made up of a wide age group – from four-years-old to aged 80, which includes a large number of experienced actors working alongside children, some of which are from The Blackbox Youth Theatre ably directed by their Principal, Kate Atterby.
The production needs an enormous amount of elaborate costumes and for this it has been most generously supported by two local firms:- Damselfly of Louth and Watsons Fuels.
No musical is complete without dance routines and these have been provided by Ceejay Liles and Kevin Pearson, who have worked tirelessly with their group of young dancers.
The production team comprises of Maureen Lill, Pip Molloy and Sue Munro. Keith Weston is our musical Director with Matthew Jeffery once again supporting him on the keyboards.
Further support is provided by Jean Bradshaw and Malvina Willis as a very challenged properties team working alongside Bob Booth, Roy Hobson and Brooke Vickers who are building the set, lighting the show and proving our sound.
The production runs from:- Wednesday, May 13 until Saturday, May 23 at 7.30pm (excluding Sunday 17).
Tickets are £10 for adults or £9.50 with a Riverhead Theatrecard, or £5 for under 18s.
The Booking Office in Victoria Road is open 10am-1pm Monday to Saturday where you can pop in or call 01507 600350. Or you can now book online at: www.louthplaygoers.com.
