The tale of an orphan and drapers assistant propelled into high society after unexpectedly inheriting a fortune is coming to Ilford.
Arthur Kipps, the protagonist of musical comedy Half a Sixpence, must decide whether to stay together with a childhood sweetheart that he left behind or a “sophisticated evening class teacher”.
The show – performed by amateur dramatics company Havering Music Makers – is set to open at the Kenneth More Theatre on February 14.
Sue Howlett, chairman of the drama company, said: “We last performed Half a Sixpence in 2006, and had a great time doing it.
“The show has changed since then, with new numbers added and huge success in the West End with the recent revival.
