Kinky Boots

at Octagon Theatre, Yeovil

YAOS productions are proud to announce that they will be one of the first Amateur groups in the country to stage, Kinky Boots the Musical. The Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think.

Set in Northampton, a young Charlie Price reluctantly inherits his father's struggling shoe factory, much to the dismay of his demanding fiancé who dreams of a life together in London. Charlie wrestles with his desires to leave his home town whilst facing up with his responsibility to save his father's legacy and the family business from bankruptcy.

After a slow start Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous drag performer who is in need of some sturdy stilettos for her act. Against all the odds Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie, and they work together to ensure the factory becomes a success. As they work together to change people's opinions, this unlikely pair find out that they have more in common than they ever thought, and together they come to understand that when you change your mind, you can change the world.
