The Highwayman is the sixth successful musical from John Gleadall & Greg Mosse – an exciting, atmospheric and memorable story of 18th century highway robbery, love, poverty and wealth. Like Daisy & Marvin Save the Day, their last Dynamo Youth Theatre musical, The Highwayman is packed with memorable ‘singalong’ songs. The exciting story ends with an extraordinary tragic climax – all of it inspired by the wonderful narrative poem of the same name by Alfred Noyes.
Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th January 2019 with a matinee on the 12th too
Tickets are now on sale for this year’s sixth form show The Flint Street Nativity, 5th – 8th Sept 2018 at The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, East Street, Havant.
Please click here to be taken to The Spring’s booking system where you can purchase tickets
The play is set in the fictitious Flint Street Primary School. It focuses on the seven- and eight-year-old pupils in that evening’s sole performance of the school nativity play, from the pre-performance classroom preparations to the final stage performance, which culminates in calamity.
There are inevitable mishaps, misunderstandings, young egos, fears of failure and fallings out. The children’s characters eventually evolve into mirror images of their parents when the actors all appear as their parents (the play’s audience) at the post-show gathering.
