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.

Following its run in Cirencester, the production will tour to Gloucester Guildhall (7thJune), Swindon Arts Centre (8th June), The Courtyard, Hereford (9th June), The Subscription Rooms, Stroud (10th June) and The Roses, Tewkesbury (11th June).

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.
