THE SHOWS

HONK!

Music by George Stiles - Book & lyrics by Anthony Drewe

Since it first hatched in 1993, Honk! - a charming twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling - has winged its way around the world in over 8,000 productions and has won multiple awards including the 2000 Olivier Award for Best Musical. We follow Ugly, the runt of the litter. Embarrassed by the way he looks, his duckling brothers and sisters bully him until he decides to leave on an adventure with a hungry feline.

“Imagine the colour and wit of Disney’s Jungle Book, mixed with the vivacity of ‘40s Hollywood musicals, exuberantly staged, and you still only have some idea of how stonkingly brilliant this treat is...” Time Out

IMAGINARY

Book & lyrics by Timothy Knapman - Music & lyrics by Stuart Matthew Price
Commissioned by NYMT for this 2017 season

Imaginary is a moving, funny and inspiring new musical about the wonder of childhood and the struggle to hold on to that wonder as you grow up. Chaotic, open-hearted and imaginative, Milo is Sam’s only friend. They do everything together. But as Sam’s first day at secondary school approaches, his mum is worried that Milo is holding her son back, stopping him from growing up. School turns out to be full of surprises – and secrets. Can Sam and Milo’s friendship survive in this new world, where a painful revelation threatens to change their lives forever?

BILLY THE KID

Music by Ben Frost - Book & lyrics by Richard Hough

Commissioned by NYMT for this 2017 Season

William Antrim is small for his age; he’s quiet and shy, which makes him an easy target for lazy bullies. But in his dreams, William Antrim is Billy the Kid, a courageous cowboy, riding the range with the sun in his eyes. An all-American hero. Now, if only his dreams could become a reality…

Billy the Kid is an adventure story, a magical, musical comedy set in a colourful world of cowboys and bandits, cactus trees and caballeros. Saddle-up for a journey back in time, to a land where the bravest heroes are only a whip-crack away! This is a show for all the family, smart enough for the most demanding young audience and silly enough for the grumpiest grown-ups.

Performances:

Curve, Leicester
Wednesday 23 to Saturday 26 August
Evenings at 7.00pm, Fri & Sat matinées at 2.30pm
