Sedos Announces 2019 Season
Sedos, the City of London's premier amateur theatre company, has revealed its 2019 Season.
The company is renowned for the high standard and diversity of its productions and the team at Sedos are delighted to stage four musicals, three plays and a devised movement piece next year. All the shows will be performed at the Bridewell Theatre, where Sedos is the resident theatre company.
Matt Gould, the Chair of the Sedos Management Committee commented: "We are thrilled to announce the 2019 Sedos Season, which features an exciting mix of eight productions at our London home, the Bridewell Theatre, in the heart of the City of London, which has been our home since 2011.
"Our exciting year of theatre includes four musicals, three plays and a brand new movement piece, as well as an enticing mix of social events and workshops. We are also delighted to be taking Sedos on tour to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with our improvisation group Simprov.
"An ambitious production of Brecht's first full-length play, Baal, kicks off the 2019 Sedos Season in January, which is followed by an immersive production of the chamber musical Next Thing You Know, by Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham, in April. Terence Rattigan's After the Dance follows in April, before Sedos brings the classic Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, by Frank Loesser, to the heart of London's business district in May.
"To coincide with the LGBTQ+ celebrations for Pride in London in July, Sedos present the British musical Soho Cinders, a modern adaptation of the Cinderella story by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. This is followed in September by the romantic comedy Arms and the Man, the company's first production of a play by Bernard Shaw.
"Sedos are very proud to present a brand new devised movement piece, based on the novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, called Dangerous Liaisons, with choreography by Sedos members Kimberly Barker and Thomas Leonard. The 2019 season concludes with a production of the controversial British musical Jerry Springer - The Opera, by Stewart Lee and Richard Thomas."
