BASED ON THE STUDIO CANAL CLASSIC PETER SELLERS COMEDY

The Smallest Show on Earth is a brand new musical comedy inspired by the hilarious 1950’s film starring Peter Sellers, featuring classic songs by Irving Berlin (Blue Skies, Shakin’ the Blues Away, Steppin’ Out With My Baby), starring Liza Goddard (Bergerac) and Brian Capron (Coronation Street).

Stunned to discover they have inherited the Bijou cinema, two innocent newly-weds have their hopes dashed when they discover it is a total flea-pit. To restore it to its former glory and stop the wrecking ball, they need to get the eccentric manageress, Mrs Fazackalee (Goddard) and Mr Quill (Capron), the unreliable projectionist, to help them with their ambitious plans.

Will they manage to make it a Blockbuster or will the whole adventure Fade to Black?

Book your tickets now for this wonderful, feel-good musical!

With hit songs including ‘Always’, ‘Blue Skies’, ‘A Simple Melody’ and ‘Let Yourself Go’.

This MADE IN COLCHESTER co-production will tour the UK, including Coventry, Glasgow, Plymouth and Malvern. Visit www.thesmallestshowonearth.co.uk to find out more!
