Peterborough’s Key Theatre is set to see a range of festive entertainment including a special revue by two West End performers.
If you’re missing your fix of musical theatre then this new show on December 3 should be just what you’re looking for.
‘Two Singular Sensations’ is created and presented by West End performers Edwin Ray and Emma Jane Morton and is packed with song and dance and some backstage stories sure to leave you beaming.
This two part musical theatre revue is a feel-good celebration of Musicals throughout the years, linked together by a friendship and a lifelong commitment and passion for all things theatrical. The show is jam packed with inventive and energetic choreography, many live instruments and a genuine love for song and dance from some of our most beloved West End and Broadway shows; From A Chorus Line to Anything goes, Ghost to Half a sixpence, and of course a song about a very special Pineapple – you’ll have to come and see to find out why!
Creator, Choreographer and Performer, Edwin Ray said – “Two Singular Sensations is a love letter to all the musical theatre and dance lovers out there. To take our 2020 production on a UK tour is a bit of a dream come true.
“Having worked in theatre for nearly 20 years, it’s shocking that we find ourselves in this desperate situation in theatre land, with our theatres still dark due to the pandemic. Having lost all our work overnight I felt like Judy Garland or Mickey Rooney in an old MGM movie saying: ‘Let’s put on a show’, So… we did, and here it is.”
Edwin has toured the world in many shows for Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, including leading roles in Nutcracker and Cinderella. He’s performed at Glyndebourne opera house, National Theatre London, UK and International tours and West End theatres in musicals such as Follies, Mary Poppins & Priscilla Queen of the desert. He was due to be Dance Captain on Hello Dolly, staring Imelda Staunton in the West End this summer, but was postponed due to the pandemic.
Creator and Performer, Emma Jane Morton added – “We made this show so the world can leave their worries at the door and enjoy an afternoon or evening of pure escapism and joy. With so much heaviness going on at the moment, it’s nice to be entertained without having to think too hard. Support your local theatres and treat yourselves to an evening of Musical Theatre delight.”
Emma is one of the UK’s most sought-after Actor musicians, and has enjoyed huge success in major West End, UK tours, and regional venues including The Watermill. Credits include Dreamboats & Petticoats, Crazy For You & Sweet Charity. She was most recently seen in the West End production of Amelie and Camelot at the Watermill.
The show will of course be playing at a reduced capacity for social distancing and the Key Theatre will be complying with strict government guidance to ensure safety.
