SCHOOL PLAY – BEGGAR’S OPERA

BACON THEATRE: Thursday 30 November & Friday 1 December at 7.30pm

We warmly welcome your support. There are a few tickets remaining, please do act quickly if you would like to see this production. Originally set in the criminal London underworld of 1728, the piece was highly inventive in setting popular tunes and ditties of the day to new words. And so, the thieves, pickpockets, murderers and strumpets in the piece would suddenly stop and sing a few lines – and so perhaps the first musical was born. The piece is also famous for being updated by Brecht as The Threepenny Opera – most of you will know Mack the Knife…

Please do not contact the Drama Department for tickets – contact the Box Office.

We look forward to welcoming you and hope you will be able to attend to support our talented young actors.

Advent Concert – Friday 8 December, 7.30pm: Bacon Theatre
