Not seen in the UK since 1992, saucy cult hit Moby Dick! The Musical is back. Originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh, Moby Dick! The Musical has a book by Robert Longden and music and lyrics by Longden and Hereward Kaye.
The anarchic and nubile girls of St. Godley's Academy for Young Ladies are in trouble! Money for the school has run out and it’s threatened with closure. Determined to save their school from bankruptcy, the resourceful girls, and their unflappable headmistress come up with a plan to keep the school afloat. Using whatever they can find, the girls mount an original production as a fundraiser - a musical version of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick, featuring their own headmistress in the coveted role of Captain Ahab.
This brand new production, staged for the show’s 25th Anniversary, is directed and choreographed by double Olivier Award nominee Andrew Wright.
This show is all about having fun and getting involved. Audience members who come in school uniform will get front row onstage seats and play a part in St Godley’s version of Moby Dick.
