Description

September 16-21 1996 Sandfield Theatre. Presented by the Nottinghamshire Education Theatre Company. Edinburgh, as we had known it, was over. Even though we had increasingly delivered value for money by increasing the opportunity but not the cost, the budget took it's toll and we looked for pastures new. This was the first of a series of large scale summer musicals with the Brassery, excellent set and costumes, energetic and spectacular dance numbers and fine individual and ensemble performances. It was also a surprise for Chairman Fred Riddell - this was really the musical he wanted when we did the previous Salvation Army shows, 'The Devil You Know' in 1991 and 'Kate and The General' in 1992. Real water in the sewers, (who had it away with that big tank?), moving walls and wild Havana what more could you want? Based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon.
