Creating A West End Show
Fri 5 May 2017, 15:00 – 16:00 BST
Go behind the scenes of a West End Show and meet members of the Half a Sixpence creative team, including Olivier and Tony award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable and other members of the team who discuss the craftsmanship involved in bringing Cameron Mackintosh’s 5 star smash hit British musical to the West End Stage.
Mackintosh’s creative team will discuss the process of bringing the production to a West end theatre with a focus on the lighting, set design and production. A musical adaptation of H.G. Wells's semi-autobiographical novel 'Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul', is a fresh adaptation which reunites book-writer Julian Fellowes (Oscar-winning screenwriter and creator of Downton Abbey) with the musical team that Cameron Mackintosh first put together to create the hit stage adaptation of Mary Poppins.
