Annalene Beechey, Daniel Boys and More Set for ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN Workshop Today
West End performers ANNALENE BEECHEY (My Fair Lady BBC Prom, Marguerite original cast, Wicked original cast), DANIEL BOYS (Spamalot, Avenue Q, and currently starring in Love Story), JAMES GILLAN (Wicked original cast, Peter Pan, Little Shop of Horrors), and LAUREN SAMUELS (Water Babies original cast, We Will Rock You London & World Tour, and currently starring in Love Story,) will star in the exclusive workshop presentation of 'Anything Can Happen!'.
Today, 25th July at 1.30pm, at the St James Theatre, SimG Productions presents a workshop presentation of a new musical revue where 'Anything Can Happen!'. Specifically created by director Simon Greiff to celebrate the diverse repertoire of the Olivier award-winning British writing team George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
Featuring song medleys from their hit shows spanning 30 years of their writing partnership; songs that deal with growing up, unrequited love, relationships, parenthood, hopes and dreaming big ... and even a pig! Carefully selected from their acclaimed musicals including Just So, Honk!, Peter Pan, Betty Blue Eyes, Soho Cinders, additional songs written for Mary Poppins, plus stand alone material, new work, and songs that 'got away'. The revue also chronicles the history of 'Stiles & Drewe'; told through narration and song, chronologically in reverse, so we finish with two fresh-faced 21 year olds meeting over the photocopier at Exeter University!
With music by George Stiles, lyrics by Anthony Drewe, musical direction and arrangements by Sarah Travis (Dear World, and Tony award-winner for orchestrations on Broadway's Sweeney Todd), and directed by Simon Greiff (most recently Picture Perfect at St James, Payback at Riverside Studios, and creator of SimG Productions and SimG Records).
The exclusive workshop presentation will also feature a 3-piece band, and will be a unique opportunity to witness the very first showcase of a brand new musical revue. With only 100 seats available to the public, at only £15, booking early is advised.
