The West End Comes To The Hawth……
A cast of 12 West End performers take you on a toe-tapping journey through An A-Z of Musical of Musical Theatre at The Hawth on Sunday 5 October at 7.30pm.
The show is the brainchild of Sam Hiller who is the current resident director of the West End hit musical The Phantom of the Opera. Along with West End musical director Stevie Higgins on grand piano the cast, all with various past and current West End credits look at the wonderful world of their business.
The cast will include local actresses Naomi Cobby (The Phantom of the Opera), Grace Gardner (Lost Boy). Scott Davies (current standby Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera), Antony Hansen (Wicked, Les Misérables), Joanna Loxton (current Les Misérables cast), Nigel Garton (Cats, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Nadim Naaman (One Man, Two Guvnors, The Sound of Music), Lyndsey Gardiner (current The Phantom of the Opera cast), Heather Jackson (The Phantom of the Opera), Tim Morgan (current The Phantom of the Opera Cast).
Sam Hiller, who lives in East Grinstead, has appeared in many West End Musicals including The Phantom of the Opera, My Fair Lady, Miss Saigon, Les Misérables, Aspects of Love, wrote the A-Z of Musical Theatre 15 years ago as a charity concert and has raised over £100,000 for local charities across the south of England. “We usually perform the concert around 3 times a year for charitable organisations and audience response has been brilliant. Bringing West End performers to the provinces is the key. I had a call from producer Nick Wilson who I had previously worked with before, asking if I was interested in developing the A-Z. So along with my wife Naomi Cobby and Stevie Higgins we devised the show in its current format. It is about a group of actors at a rehearsal exploring the world of musical theatre from A-Z. It is humorous, emotive and of course full of wonderful songs.”
