Appeal Theatre Group brings musical to Ipswich dance house

APPEAL Theatre Group is looking forward to introducing some little-known songs to a wider audience.

It is staging an exciting version of Songs For A New World, a musical by American composer Jason Robert Brown.

Covering all musical styles, the show follows the theme of taking life’s moments and making a choice as to which direction to follow.

Numbers include the humorous Surabaya Santa, the tragic Just One More Step, the thought provoking I’m Not Afraid Of Anything and the majestic On The Deck Of A Spanish Sailing Ship, sure to get your feet tapping.

The cast, comprising some of the area’s best singers, are relishing the chance to showcase this Tony award-winning songwriter’s work at The Jerwood DanceHouse, on Ipswich’s Waterfront.

Never one to sit back and take a rest, the group will then bring A Grand Night For Singing, a Rodgers and Hammerstein revue, to the New Wolsey in June.

Songs For A New World is at the Jerwood DanceHouse from April 13-16.
