Wharf Youth Theatre presents
Shake Ripple & Roll
Book & lyrics by Jennifer Toksvig
Music by David Perkins
directed by Kim Pearce
The year is 1956 and in a little town outside New York, Uncle Angelo's Ice Cream Parlour is the place to go.
Kids meet over their shakes and ice cream, rocking and rolling to the swinging sounds of the old juke box.
When Uncle Angelo suddenly passes away, movie star Deanna la Domme appears on the scene threatening to sell the parlour at the end of the week.
What can the Angelo’s staff do? Who is Deanna la Domme? And can they find Uncle Angelo's secret will in time to save the day?
This exuberant, fun packed musical written for a cast of young people features a glitzy rock 'n' roll score and plenty of action.
Join the Wharf Youth Theatre for a show full of excitement and catchy songs.
Tickets £8 from Devizes Books, Handel House, Sidmouth Street, Devizes, SN10 1LD.
To all members and supporters of the Wharf Theatre:
The Theatre is run entirely by volunteers and, if you don't fancy acting on stage, there are always lots of opportunities for you to help out with vital and rewarding responsibilities off the stage, both behind the scenes and in the Front of House. Each performance requires normally around eleven volunteers to help run the box office, bar and refreshments, manage the stage, props and actors, run the lighting and sound effects required and carry out the essential duties of perfomance licencee. In addition, there are numerous opportunites to help design, build and decorate sets, as well as to compose publicity material and help with the distribution and management of publicity material (including the content of this website).
If you enjoy theatre but do not want to appear on stage, why not double your enjoyment by joining one of our off-stage teams to help provide critical supporting skills that the Theatre needs. Training is provided for these responsibilities, and you will not only meet similarly enthusiastic people but also become a valuable part of the Theatre family.
You do not need to be a member to come and have a look and to try out these tasks, although if you wish to pursue technical and back-stage work for productions you will ultimately require membership. To find out more, please e-mail the Chairman or any of the Management team via the Contacts page.
