MUSICAL: Moby Dick! at Worthing Pavilion Theatre

AHOY there! New Southern Musical Productions are weighing anchor and heading for the high seas with their next production, Moby Dick!

The Worthing-based musical theatre group brings the musical to Worthing's Pavilion Theatre from Wednesday, April 22, to Saturday, April 25.

St Godley's Private School for girls is in trouble. Money has run out and the school is on the verge of bankruptcy.

Faced with the threat of closure, the girls and their flamboyant headmistress decide to stage a self-written musical production of Moby Dick in the school grounds.

The head (played by a man in drag) offers herself the lead role of Captain Ahab and what follows is a madcap musical romp of epic proportions.

Professional actor Lee Payne from Worthing is at the helm of this highly comic, satirical romp through the age-old mariner's tale.

It seems these girls will do almost anything to raise the sorely-needed funds to keep the school afloat.

The show, inspired by the 1954 film The Belles of St Trinians, was a cult-favourite in the West End in the 1990s.

Hereward Kaye, the original composer of Moby Dick! The Musical, has lent his support to NSMP and will be working closely with them to ensure the show really packs a punch with the audience.

Tickets 12 to 14.
