Young Set : Olivia the Musical
The Young Set is the
youth section of Broxbourne Theatre Company and caters for youngsters
from the age of 9 who are interested in the world of theatre, until they
are eligible to join the adult company at 16.
It aims to give them a firm grounding
in drama, music and movement, and an introduction to some of
the technical aspects of the theatre. This is accomplished by weekly
sessions in which various aspects of the performing arts are explored
and practiced, often leading to the Young Set's own production at
the end of the season.
This brilliant and innovative show, set in Victorian
times, traces the steps of Olivia from downtrodden orphan to star of the stage.
On her journey to the bright lights of London, she is
befriended by Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady and, after a series of
adventures, becomes a singer in a new Gilbert and Sullivan show, thanks to the
unlikely assistance of Fagin and The Artful Dodger.
Olivia also meets George Bernard Shaw, Ebenezer
Scrooge, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in a feel-good show that abounds with
wit and humour, both in the script and the songs.
