Award winning theatre company to perform 42nd Street

The next production from award winning TEMPO will be 42nd Street, the all-singing, tap dancing, glitzy spectacular which tells the story of Peggy Sawyer and her rise in a 1930's Broadway show from the chorus line to leading lady. 

TEMPO are keen to continue with the success of last year's sell-out show CATS, for which they won 4 ACT awards (Association of Community Theatre), including most original production (youth), and 3 NODA awards (National Operatic and Dramatic Association), including Best Ensemble (youth).

Chairperson Alison Bisset said "42nd Street is such great show for our company of talented young performers to be involved in. It is a much more traditional, and different show from last year, full of big dance numbers, well known songs and glamorous costumes. All our cast have embraced with gusto and mastered the sometimes-challenging tap dancing numbers and can't wait to perform for our audiences".

First performed over 40 years ago, 42nd Street has just finished a highly successfully run at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Set in 1930's American during the Great Depression, it is a classic song and dance musical telling of the dreams of Broadway featuring the familiar songs 'We're in the Money', 'Lullaby of Broadway', 'Dames' and of course '42nd Street'.

42nd Street will be at the Evans Theatre, Wilmslow Leisure Centre between the 5-9th March 2019. Performances are at 7.30pm with a matinee on Saturday 9th March at 2.30pm.
