Half A Sixpence

Stowmarket Operatic and Dramatic Society present Half a Sixpence

This is a classic family show is based on H.G.Wells' novel 'Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul' and is the story of Arthur Kipps, an orphan who unexpectedly inherits a fortune.  Kipps and Ann were childhood friends. When they were parted, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him. Years later, Kipps is working as an apprentice in a draper's shop in Folkestone. Ann arrives in the town, looking for him. They meet and re-kindle their childhood friendship. Then everything changes.

Featuring over twenty musical numbers including 'Flash Bang Wallop' made famous by Tommy Steele, 'All In The Cause Of Economy', 'Half A Sixpence', 'Money To Burn', and 'Too Far Above Me', this is a feelgood show for all the family to enjoy.
