Loved by Ann, his childhood companion, and glamorous Helen, always there to improve him. Kipps struggles with his new identity, learning that to live the right life, you need to make good choices. Expect new songs and classics we know and love, in this reimagined version of Half A Sixpence!
Our Chairman Jean Pinkney is a fan of Tommy Steele is an understatement, so meeting him ahead of the show was truly wonderful. Tommy Steele played Arthur Kipps in the original West End, Broadway and film version of Half A Sixpence! We feel very privileged to receive such warm wishes from such a legend! Take a look at his best wishes below.
