Due to current public health advice in relation to COVID-19, WODS has currently suspended rehearsals for our current production – “Kipps” – which we were due to perform in April 2020. Subject to the changing public health situation, we now hope to stage the production in April 2021 as long as we are able to recommence rehearsals in time to prepare for those performance dates, and that any remaining Government restrictions allow for the theatre to open. If you had already booked tickets for the 2020 show dates, we would first and foremost encourage you to exchange these for the equivalent new date in 2021, or one of the other performance dates. If this is not your preference for now, then both WODS and WorcesterLive would be happy to provide you with a full refund for the ticket value until such time as you wish to re-book to see our production when it takes to the stage.
If you booked your tickets through WODS then please email email@example.com to exchange/refund your tickets. If you booked your tickets through WorcesterLive then please contact the Box Office for an exchange/refund.
Flash, Bang, Wallop! WODS’ next production is a re-working of a classic musical by the writing team behind the stage version of Mary Poppins – “Kipps – The New Half A Sixpence Musical”. Arthur Kipps is an orphan, and an over-worked draper’s assistant. He’s charming but ordinary, but dreams of a better more fulfilling world. When he unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society it confuses everything he thought he knew about life. With the help of his childhood companion and not-quite girlfriend Ann, and his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices. This new version of Half A Sixpence, which returns to the HG Wells semi-autobiographical novel, “Kipps”, in order to reinvent the musical for the modern age, has a stellar creative team and reunites bookwriter Julian Fellowes with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe to create the smash-hit stage adaptation. Julian Fellowes’ masterful adaptation returns the musical to its literary roots, in a timeless and contemporary way, and Stiles and Drewe’s brilliantly infectious new score harnesses the David Heneker classics with a joyous verve.
