KIPPS - THE NEW HALF A SIXPENCE PRESENTED BY MILTON MUSICAL SOCIETY
KIPPS - THE NEW HALF A SIXPENCE PRESENTED BY MILTON MUSICAL SOCIETY

Kipps - The New Half A Sixpence Musical is a stage musical based on the 1905 novel Kipps by H. G. Wells and the original 1963 musical, with music by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Mary Poppins, Peter Pan & Soho Cinders), and lyrics by Anthony Drewe and Heneker, featuring several of the original songs by Heneker, and book by Julian Fellowes. Arthur Kipps, an orphan, is an over-worked draper’s assistant at Shalford’s Bazaar, Folkestone, at the turn of the last century.
< br> He is a charming but ordinary young man who, along with his fellow apprentices, dreams of a better and more fulfilling world. 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 these young women love Arthur – there is no doubt about that – but which should he listen to?
< br> 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.
< br> Performed by the award-winning Milton Musical Society, who have previously performed Chess, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Oklahoma and the highly acclaimed sell out My Fair Lady. Kipps - The New Half A Sixpence features well known musical numbers such as Pick out a Simple Tune, Flash, Bang, Wallop and of course Half a Sixpence. This is the feel-good show for the entire family.
