My Fair Lady - October 2019
Lerner & Loewe's award-winning story of Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady, is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all time.
LEOS had a fabulous time re-creating Edwardian London, enjoying all the famous songs, including 'Wouldn't It be Loverly?, 'With a Little Bit of Luck', 'The Rain in Spain', 'I Could Have Danced All Night' and 'Get Me to the Church on Time'. Together with fabulous, energetic choreography, wonderful harmonies and a set of costumes to die for, we all had a 'luverly' time!

Fame - April 2019
Mention Fame to anyone and they are bound to think of the exuberant Oscar-winning title song with its high energy chorus. Fame The Musical is the stage show full of more of the same breathtaking singing and dazzling dancing!
Ultimately a bittersweet but inspiring story of a diverse group of classmates, we follow them in their pursuit of fame through four years of gruelling artistic and academic work at New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s. With honesty and humour, the show confronts issues that still face teenagers today – from encountering prejudice, struggling with illiteracy or substance abuse, to more universal themes such as growing up, dedication and determination to succeed.

Whistle Down the Wind - April 2018
This show was nominated for an Eagle Award for Best Child Performance for ALL the children in the show, and also nominated for a Special Eagle Award for smoothness of scene changes. In addition, we were thrilled to be nominated for the Hinks-Cole Trophy for the vest overall production of a musical in the East Midlands NODA Region.
Based on the book and film of the same name, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaptation of Whistle Down the Wind is set in the religious Deep South in 1950s Louisiana. Three children have just lost their mother and they and their father are struggling with grief and poverty. One day, the children find a stranger injured and hiding in their barn. 15-year-old Swallow seizes on the idea that he is Jesus and the rumour quickly spreads amongst the town’s children. Meanwhile, the adults of the town are on the lookout for a convict who is on the run – could he be the man in the barn?
