Jack the Ripper - The Musical
By Denis de Marne, Ron PemberTue 21st to Sat 25th October 2014
Directed by Kerry King
The play is a musical reconstruction of incidents relating to the East End murders which took place between Friday, August 31st and Friday, November 9th, 1888. A solution of Jack the Ripper's identity is hinted at, but the play is an atmospheric commentary rather than an historical re-enactment, shifting between reality and artificiality, with characters representing "real" people as well as members of the music hall audience and players.
We meet every Tuesday (except the fourth in the month) from 2.15 - 3.30pm at the theatre to rehearse well-known standard songs. Once a month we usually go out to different venues to entertain (over 60 clubs, WI, retired Associations etc.) in Clacton, Colchester, Ipswich and villages all around. We have 10 lady singers, and 6 men, with 2 musicians to accompany.
For further information about joining or to book the Daytimers call: Patience Ling on 01206 393171 or come along to the theatre on a Tuesday afternoon.For details of these and any other forthcoming events you can call the theatre on 01206 391309 or email us at email@example.com
