Don’t miss Mill Hill drama students performing the hugely popular 1920s musical “The Boy Friend”, produced in support of the Agape Theatre Company in Ethiopia. The production runs from 4th, 5th and 6th February in the Patrick Troughton Theatre – tickets are going fast so book now!
Sandy Wilson’s musical was written at a time when the United Kingdom was still recovering from the devastating effects of World War II and is set in the carefree world of the French Riviera in the Roaring 1920s, a similar period of peace and gradual recovery after the rigours of World War II.
The musical’s original 1954 London production ran for 2,078 performances, making it briefly the third-longest running musical in West End or Broadway history.
