NEWS: Beechey and Boys for Anything Can Happen workshop presentation

West End performers Annalene Beechey (My Fair Lady BBC Prom, Marguerite original cast, Wicked original cast), and Daniel Boys (Spamalot, Avenue Q, and currently starring in Love Story) will join James Gillan (Wicked original cast, Peter Pan, Little Shop of Horrors), and Lauren Samuels (Water Babies original cast, We Will Rock You London &World Tour, and currently starring in Love Story,) for an exclusive workshop presentation of new musical Anything Can Happen which will be presented on the 25th July at 1:30pm at London’s St James Theatre.

Specifically created by director Simon Greiff to celebrate the diverse repertoire of the Olivier award-winning British writing team George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

Featuring song medleys from their hit shows spanning 30 years of their writing partnership; songs that deal with growing up, unrequited love, relationships, parenthood, hopes and dreaming big … and even a pig! Carefully selected from their acclaimed musicals including Just So, Honk!, Peter Pan, Betty Blue Eyes, Soho Cinders, additional songs written for Mary Poppins, plus stand alone material, new work, and songs that ‘got away’. The revue also chronicles the history of ‘Stiles &Drewe’; told through narration and song, chronologically in reverse, so we finish with two fresh-faced 21 year olds meeting over the photocopier at Exeter University!

Anything Can Happen features music by George Stiles, lyrics by Anthony Drewe, musical direction and arrangements by Sarah Travis (Dear World, and Tony award-winner for orchestrations on Broadway’s Sweeney Todd), and direction by Simon Greiff (most recently Picture Perfect at St James, Payback at Riverside Studios, and creator of SimG Productions and SimG Records).

£15 : Friday 25th July, 1.30pm,
