The Smallest Show on Earth at the Malvern Theatres
PUBLISHED: 16:41 16 November 2015
A new musical comedy with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, starring Liza Goddard and Brian Capron.
The Smallest Show on Earth is a brand new musical comedy inspired by the hilarious 1950s film starring Peter Sellers, featuring classic songs by Irving Berlin including Blue Skies, Shakin’ the Blues Away, Steppin’ Out With My Baby and How Deep is the Ocean, as well as some rediscovered gems.
Director Thom Southerland said “Berlin’s music provides the perfect accompaniment to our 1950s story, not only in lyric, but in style and period too.” The cast of the new musical comedy will be led by Liza Goddard (Take Three Girls, Bergerac, Grandpa in my Pocket) as Mrs Fazackalee and Brian Capron (Coronation Street, Where the Heart Is, Grange Hill) as Mr Quill. Also in the cast will be Haydn Oakley as Matthew Spenser, Laura Pitt-Pulford as Jean Spenser, Ricky Butt as Ethel Hardcastle, Philip Rham as Albert Hardcastle, Christina Bennington as Marlene Hardcastle, Sam O’Rourke as Tom Fazackalee and Matthew Crowe as Robin Carter, with Leo Andrew, Jacob Chapman, Matthew Dale, Nova Skipp and Leah West.
Newly-weds Matt and Jean Spenser inherit a cinema and think their fortune is made. But the Bijou, better known as the fleapit, is the victim of a dirty tricks campaign from its rival flashy neighbour The Grand. The Bijou’s benevolent manageress Mrs Fazackalee and unreliable projectionist Mr Quill combine with Matt and Jean to outwit the opposition and restore the Bijou to its former glory. Will they manage to make it a Blockbuster or will the whole venture Fade to Black?
