Join us for one of the most uplifting shows you’ll see performed at local theatre.

 Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), who has masterfully adapted the H G Wells novel ‘Kipps’, collaborates with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the musical team from the smash-hit stage adaptation of Mary Poppins, to bring you this new stage version of ‘Half A Sixpence’.

It will have you dancing in your seats to ‘Pick Out A Simple Tune’ and stamping your feet to old favourite ‘Flash, Bang, Wallop’.  Another cast favourite, entitled ‘A Little Touch of Happiness’, perfectly embraces all that is this delightful musical suitable for all ages!

Kipps - the musical

Arthur Kipps, an orphan, is an over-worked draper’s assistant at Shalford’s Bazaar, Folkestone, at the turn of the last century. He is a charming but ordinary young man who, along with his fellow apprentices, dreams of a better and more fulfilling world, but he likes his fun just like any other, except not quite. When Kipps unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society, it confuses everything he thought he knew about life.

Watching him wrestle with his new identity is his childhood companion and not-quite girlfriend, Ann Pornick, who sees with dismay how Arthur is being made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. She is always there with helpful hints on how Arthur could improve himself and make his life richer and more meaningful, if only he would believe in himself, and listen to her. Both of these young women love Arthur – there is no doubt about that – but which should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices.
