A Day At the Sea-side - A Music-Theatre Excursion into Edwardian England

Large Mixed Cast

Jeremy R. Lucas & Ward Baker Price: $8.95

Great Yarmouth, 1904. Two parties of children arrive for day trips - one from a Norfolk preparatory school, the other from the slums of London

The social taboos of the period alongside the jollity of pierrot shows and the elegant life-style of Edwardian England provide a lively but thought-provoking piece of theatre, full of bustle, noise and humour, yet tinged with irony and culminating in harsh reality

Suggested Age Range: 8 to 13, possibly to 15/16 - Running Time : 75 minutes + interval

Music : Mostly contemporary light music/songs of the Edwardian period; mix of solo and group items; scope for choreography; ideally accompaniment includes small band and string quartet (on stage if possible) but mostly piano; key-boards could suffice

Set: Based on sea-side architecture, changing rapidly through various aspects of an Edwardian resort
