The Barn Theatre in Cirencester and the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham have today announced that their new production of Some Enchanted Evening® - The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein will embark on a rural tour following its run in Cirencester from 6-28 May 2022 (Press Night: 9 May).

Creative Director of Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre Paul Milton will direct a new production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein revue, which celebrates the work of the iconic duo during the golden age of musical theatre, featuring a parade of songs from Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s most beloved scores including Oklahoma!, The Sound of Music and South Pacific.

Conceived by Jeffrey B. Moss, the revue juxtaposes numbers in theatrical settings: ‘backstage’, where the songs are sung as personal interplay and ‘onstage’, where the songs are presented to the audience.

Alongside Paul Milton on the creative team are Nicole Johnson (Musical Supervisor), Corin Hayes (Set Designer), Hayley Pursey (Costume Designer), John Rainsforth (Lighting Designer) and Harry Smith (Sound Designer).

The actor-musician cast of Some Enchanted Evening® - The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein are Aoibheann Biddle as Nellie, Heather Conder as Julie, Emma Jane Morton as Anna, Ben Pulman as Billy and Laurie Denman as Will.

Some Enchanted Evening® - The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein is a co-production between the Barn Theatre and Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham.

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.
