LIVING WITH APRIL

Synopsis:

 

April despises her job working in a bar and instead dreams of success as an artist. Wanting to help her achieve this, her partner Michael convinces his boss that he is ideal for a promotion so that April can quit her job and spend more time painting. As Michael's career flourishes, April's dream of an art career faces set back after set back. Soon her jealousy towards Michael controls her and the situation is not helped by Chris and his wife Jo, who are too caught up in their own mindless arguments to help. 


With a contemporary rock score, this new musical will make you laugh and cry, and have you tapping your feet along with the music.


BHTC NOTES: Staging a musical in the clubs own small theatre was never going to be easy, but by the shared use of the dressing room and a video link, this was successfully achieved (see photos below). For more information about Stephen's music please see Sebelius music site where you can buy the sheet music from the show.
