Must See Musicals forth coming production ’The Railway Children A Musical’ Directed by Angela Snell, is to be staged at Centre Stage Theatre, South Cheshire College, Dane Bank Ave, Crewe, from the 17th – 20th July 2013.
The musical is a superb adaptation based on E.Nesbitts classic novel.
An idyllic Edwardian family Christmas is interrupted by a knock at the door and a family’s life is changed forever when Father is wrongfully arrested.
The Mother and the three children Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis are then forced to move to live in the countryside.
Discovering a railway near their new house is just the beginning of a series of adventures set over one long summer.
A spokesperson for the production said:
“Julian Woodford’s and Richard Johns musical brings a masterful emotional depth to this rite of passage story, developing from youthful passion for adventure to an adult sense of responsibility.
The musical features, heartfelt ballads and choral numbers which has been a new challenge for the group and helped to achieve by both Musical Director Victoria Wood and Pianist Chris Burton.”

Father/Old Gentleman – Chris Sherwood

Roberta (Bobbie) – Louise Green
