A musical which was a sell-out at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival will be performed for one night only at the Lion Salt Works Museum in Marston, near Northwich.
Confessions of a Redheaded Coffee Shop Girl is part of the Cheshire Rural Touring Arts Spring Programme and will be performed on Saturday, May 28 at 7.30pm.
Determined to use her vocational skills, Joanie turns her local coffee shop upside down when she decides to report on the ‘creatures’ (customers) of the shop as if she were Jane Goodall herself, bushwhacking through the African jungle to study the chimpanzees.
In her very own ‘Coffee Shop Jungle’ hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, and even a little romance. One actor performs more than 20 characters and sings in five different styles of singing in the same show.
Cabinet member for culture, leisure and wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council Councillor Louise Gittins, said: “This kind of best-selling production is just what was envisaged when the Lion Salt Works Museum was renovated. I am delighted that the Thompson Suite, located in one of the museum’s large renovated Stove Houses, is being used so effectively.”
The hour-long Rebecca Perry Productions performance is suitable for children aged nine years or over. Tickets (£8 adults; £6 for under 16s) can be purchased at www.ticketsource.co.uk/cheshireruraltouringarts or call the Lion Salt Works on 01606 275040
