After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival FringeSiX is back in Cambridge's ADC Theatre.

SiX had phenomenal success at the fringe this year receiving 5 star reviews from Musical Theatre Review, UK Theatre Network and Fringe Guru! The show was nominated for the Musical Theatre Review 'Best Musical' Award and was among WestEndWilma's and westendproducer's top picks of the Fringe! 

We are very proud of all involved in the show and wish the writers, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, the best of luck as they take this show forward.

LONDON ROAD

It took their lives for them to help us.’

In 2006, Steve Wright of 79 London Road was convicted of the murders of Tania Nichol, Gemma Adams, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls. The deaths of these five sex workers shook the quiet rural town of Ipswich to its core.

London Road documents the experiences of its residents, as the police and the media flocked to their front doors, grappling with what it means to be at the epicentre of a tragedy.

 

Real words from real events set to an innovative musical score, London Road is a gripping verbatim musical that tells the story of a community rising from the depths of trauma.

Nominated for 4 Olivier Awards, winner of Best Musical at the Critic’s Circle Theatre Awards and adapted into a film starring Olivia Colman and Tom Hardy, London Road is a groundbreaking piece of experimental musical theatre.

CUMTS ORIGINAL MUSICAL!

 

The CUMTS Original Musical this year is going to be unlike any musical before! We plan to tell the story of the six wives of Henry VIII, however, through the form of a 21st century pop concert. The six queens for one night only will be a world famous girl group, and the songs they sing will focus on their experiences, their emotions and their group dynamic, something that we will get to experiment with - think 'The Tudors' meets 'Destiny's Child'! The score will consist of original songs covering many modern pop genres, from Beyoncé 'Single Ladies' style dance numbers, to Sia 'Elastic Heart' style power ballads. The narrative element will be in style of a reunion tour, as the queens briefly chat through their experiences - watch a bit of Beyoncé's 'Live at Rosalind: Elements of 4' concert to get the vibe.

 

There will be lots of opportunities for choreography, character work, technical experimentation (projections, lighting, etc...), as well as six fantastic roles for women in Cambridge, with a couple of supporting 'backing-singer' type roles for men and women. It will have the sass and sparkles of a pop concert, with all the raw and relatable emotions of six of histories most influential and misunderstood women, through a 21st century lens. Creatively, we have set ideas about the form and characters, we have many ideas about the structure and what songs are going to be where and how the stories are going to be told, and we are currently working on the music and speech and how they are going to weave together.
