Arts: Gotta Sing Gotta Dance in Stevenage

‘GOTTA’ buy a ticket is the cry from an all-singing all-dancing production promising a programme that fits the bill right across the musical theatre spectrum.

Coming to Stevenage’s Gordon Craig Theatre next week, Gotta Sing Gotta Dance features a cast of top West End performers, accompanied by a live band, who take the audience on a ride through the world of musical theatre.

With over 60 songs from some of the greatest musicals ever written including Mary Poppins, Chicago, Les Miserables, Mamma Mia and Sweeney Todd, there’s bound to be something that hits the right note.

The Comet caught up with performer Adam Scown to ask about the show and his lengthy CV.

The 25-year-old Australian, who has been working and living in the UK for a number of years, said: “We do a lot of different songs from everyone’s favourite musicals.

“It’s been really really demanding as there’s only seven of us and we do about 60 numbers in total in two hours.

“It’s been hard work but you just have to give it your all every night.”
