After receiving a hat-trick of five-star reviews (see below) at the Edinburgh Festival this August, the latest School Musical 'What You Will' is going to be performed at the Royal College of Music at 3pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 7th January 2012. There will also be a pre-performance reception at 6.15pm.
The Britten Theatre is a charmingly intimate opera house, built in the Italian style with boxes and gilt trimmings, just behind the Albert Hall.
Many of our 2011 Leavers are making themselves available to take up their original roles in this stunning show. Rob Collins, now a music scholar at Berklee College in Boston, is returning to the UK to take the lead role of Count Orsino, and Hebe Dickins, who plays Maria, is taking a break from a hectic first year's training at Bristol Old Vic Drama School in order to take part.
‘Shrewsbury School lives up to its gleaming reputation with a technically flawless production… a real triumph.’

A journey, a storm and a shipwreck. A loving sister and brother separated on a hostile shore. A dead father - a melancholy Duke - lost love, unrequited love - ambitious servants - lost illusions - joy and hope restored. Shakespeare's most romantic comedy 'Twelfth Night' or 'What You Will' was transformed into a new piece of music theatre by John Moore, in this adaptation by Peter Fanning.
Tickets are £16 / £14 from our Reception 01743 280500 firstname.lastname@example.org; please let us know if you are intending to attend the pre-performance reception at 6.15pm.
