ABOUT

The story begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.

ABOUT

To Henrietta Janssen, things just don’t feel quite right. It’s more than the war - growing up in Amsterdam, by the spring of 1945, she’s used to that. It’s all the unanswered questions: why does her teacher tell her off whatever she does? Why is there never enough to eat? Why doesn’t she feel like she fits in, even with her own family? Why is the old lady on her way to school always so angry with her? And why is there a boy in her neighbour’s window, when they only have daughters?

Inspired by the true stories of love, sacrifice and bravery in the Netherlands over the Second World War, HENRIETTA is about a thirst for adventure, the need we all feel to establish our identity, and how ordinary people can be capable of extraordinary courage.

ABOUT

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.

A KISS FOR CINDERELLA

WORKSHOP OF A NEW MUSICAL IN DEVELOPMENT

 

Winning submission for NYMT’s 2020 New Musical Workshop

 

Music by Jack Trzcinski

Book and lyrics by Annabel Mutale Reed

Continuing our series of workshops of new musicals in development, this fully-cast workshop will form part of our summer residential programme. A Kiss for Cinderella, an adaptation of J. M. Barrie's 1916 play of the same name, follows Jane, a young girl from across the sea, and the refugee children she takes care of - Flo, Blue and Krista - in 1940s London during the Blitz. These girls have each brought their own version of the tale of Cinderella with them, and are determined that Jane is the Cinderella the stories all tell about.
