KIPPS – The New Half A Sixpence Musical

26 – 29 October 2022

Hatton Musical Theatre are thrilled to be returning to the Rhoda McGaw Theatre in October 2022 with KIPPS – The New Half A Sixpence Musical, following our sell out, award winning production of Elf The Musical.

About the show

This new stage version of Half A Sixpence, which returns to the H. G. Wells semi-autobiographical novel, “Kipps”, premiered in the West End in 2017 and features many popular songs, including Money to Burn, If the Rain’s Gotta Fall, Half a Sixpence and Flash Bang Wallop!

In order to reinvent the musical “Half a Sixpence” for the modern age, this musical reunites bookwriter Julian Fellowes with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the musical team that co-creator Cameron Mackintosh first put together to create the smash-hit stage adaptation of Mary Poppins with Disney. 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.
