Norfolk Youth Music Theatre

SUMMARY

This major reworking of the original 1973 show delighted audiences when it played in the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park in 1994. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Arnold Bennett, this is the lively tale of a pushy young opportunist in a Potteries town in the early 1900s. A go-getting personality, his disarmingly sharp practices enable him to win over local ‘society’, outwit influential rivals, sort out his romantic entanglements, and make himself mayor. A very funny show, with catchy songs, including Moving On, How Do and Typical Machin.

CARD REVIEWS : The Card was nominated for Best Revival in the 1995 Laurence Olivier Awards
