Pal Joey
Regis Centre, Belmont Street, Bognor Regis, PO21 1BL

PAL JOEY is known for breaking hearts, and for featuring one of the most delectable scores and wittiest lyrics of any American musical. Richard Rogers wrote in The Times, ‘Pal Joey’ was the work that ‘forced the entire musical comedy theater to wear long pants for the first time.’ Its deglamourizing portrait of show business in Depression-era Chicago anticipated the decadent seediness conjured by Cabaret and Chicago. Brooks Atkinson in the New York Times wrote of the original production: it’s a show that ‘draws sweet water from a foul well’. With musical classics like Chicago and Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, a handsome charmer with stars in his eyes, a sultry mistress, and glittering production numbers, the ground-breaking Joey, changed the face of classic Broadway. And it all started with a letter… Exceptional staging, Exceptional fun and one of the musical theatre stage’s enduring triumphs! Staged by the brilliant Musical Theatre Triple Threat programme whose shows now have a special cache in the industry with both media critics and local audiences now regularly sell out.

Pal Joey is Directed by Karen Howard with Musical Direction by Stuart Hutchinson and Choreography by Rachel Brown whose collective professional credits guarantee exceptional production values. Support your local theatre and have a memorable night out with a high-quality live show! Part of the ROGERS & HART Season featuring PAL JOEY & BABES IN ARMS. Buy both at the same time and get the second half price!

Tickets: £14, £12 (Concessions), £8 (NUS/U16’s). To book tickets call 01243 861010 or book online at alexandratheatre.co.uk.

Thurs 19th – Sat 21st Nov, 7.30pm, Sat 21st Nov, 2.30pm
Babes In Arms
Regis Centre, Belmont Street, Bognor Regis, PO21 1BL

Rogers & Hart’s early ground-breaking classic boasts one of the greatest scores ever written with My Funny Valentine, Where or When, Johnny One Note and The Lady is a Tramp immortalised as recording album favourites by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams and Barbra Streisand. The plot is simple on the surface: Valentine and his teenage friends find themselves unsupervised while their folks hit the vaudeville summer circuit. The local sheriff, regarding the kids as indolent loafers, threatens to send them to a work farm. But they talk themselves into a two-week reprieve — just enough time to produce their own show and prove their mettle. The old-fashioned virtues of musical comedy are peppered with socio-political commentary designed to provoke its 1937 audience to think about the divisive society that was soon to explode into globalconflict. It remains ‘an exhilarating hymn to youth with Hart’s acerbic wit perfectly counterpointing Rodgers’ innate romanticism, and the lyrics are a triumph of ingenious wordplay.’ The Guardian.

Staged by the brilliant Musical Theatre Triple Threat programme whose shows now have a special cache in the industry with both media critics and local audiences now regularly sell out.

Babes in Arms is Directed by Gary Sefton with Musical Direction by Brady Mould and Choreography by Damien Delaney whose collective professional credits guarantee exceptional production values. Part of the ROGERS & HART Season

Cry-Baby
Regis Centre, Belmont Street, Bognor Regis, PO21 1BL

The Musical Theatre Performance Company is very proud to present this jumping, jiving, Rock and Roll musical, based on the cult classic 1990 John Waters film. Brought to you by the same team that produced the Olivier
Award Winning musical Our House in January 2020. It’s 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism, and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause - truth, justice, and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl Allison are star-crossed lovers at the centre of this world. Fuelled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky-clean boyfriend Baldwin to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry- Baby’s moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin as the king of the squares leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

Filled with unforgettable songs and a truly unique and fresh story, from the writers of Hairspray, Cry-Baby is a deliciously enjoyable, rebellious teen comedy event. Cry-Baby, Allison and Baltimore’s energetic juvenile delinquents will dance their way right into your heart!
