Due November 2023 Me and My Girl
Following her sell-out 2022 production of OKLAHOMA!, TATS is delighted to announce that our very own major musical genius Jan Clemens will be back to direct another blockbuster show in November.
Me and My Girl revolves around an unapologetically unrefined cockney gentleman named Bill, who learns that he is 14th heir to the Earl of Hareford – however, he will only receive the inheritance if Sir John and the Duchess approve of him.
The Duchess feels that, with a little grooming, Bill will be suitable to inherit the title – and the money! However, she insists that Bill breaks up with his cockney girlfriend, Sally, but Bill refuses to accept the title if he cannot keep Sally as ‘his’ girl.
