The Band Plays On from Sheffield Theatres

Chichester Festival Theatre is delighted to be partnering with Sheffield Theatres to offer their brand new streamed show, The Band Plays On, to our audiences. Available from 15 - 28 March, ticket sales will benefit CFT as well as Sheffield Theatres.

From writer Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge), The Band Plays On is a rousing night of extraordinary tales and live music. Funny, moving and often unexpected, these stories of solidarity and survival from the Steel City are sound tracked by new versions of classics from some of Sheffield's most celebrated artists including I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor (Arctic Monkeys); Pour Some Sugar on Me (Def Leppard) and Sing it Back (Moloko).

 The cast is Jocasta Almgill  (& Juliet West End, West Side Story Royal Exchange Manchester), Anna-Jane Casey (Mack & Mabel, My One & Only Chichester Festival Theatre, Annie Get Your Gun Sheffield), Sandra Marvin (Stepping Out CFT, Show Boat Sheffield & West End), Maimuna Memon (Standing at the Sky’s Edge Sheffield, Jesus Christ Superstar Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre) and Jodie Prenger (A Taste of Honey, Oliver! West End).
