Hugh Martin – Stage Door

Tonight’s show was all about Hugh Martin who died in March this year aged 96.  As a composer he created Meet Me in St Louis. He was also a vocal arranger, vocal coach, lyricist and pianist.  He even dabbled in Acting.  He had a hand in all the songs in tonight’s playlist.

We reviewed a couple of productions Cowardy Custard at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford and briefly talked about Shrek The Musical which I saw last night.  Do go along to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and check it out. 

 

If you would like to come and support a group of local artists including Phoenix FM’s Emma Sweeney in a musical revue called ‘An Ordinary Life’ it’s at the Brentwood theatre on 17th July at 3 and 8pm.  Emma is directing the show and Ian Southgate is Musical Director.  I am in it and I can tell you it’s going to be a lot of fun.  All proceeds go to the theatre.  Box office: 01277 200305.

Other events that look interesting are: Bette & Joan at the Arts Theatre in London starring Anita Dobson and Greta Scacchi as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford – Box Office 0207 907 7092 or www.artstheatrewestend.com.  These are a few of my favourite songs at the Jermyn Street Theatre, London until 4th June 0207 287 2875 or www.jermynstreettheatre.co.uk. The Vienna Proms at the Civic Theatre Chelmsford on 9th June Box Office 01245 606505 or www.chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres.  If you would like to check out Stage Talk tv the channel for Amateur theatre on Showcase Tv every Sunday at 5pm go to Sky Channel 201, Freesat Channel 403 or online at www.stagetalk.tv
