It tells the tale of widow, Penny Moore, who wants to achieve her dreams of creating the best music hall in all of London during a time where women were regarded as inferior.

Undeterred, she conjures up a unique way to save her beloved music hall from closure.

The show is interwoven with music hall numbers from the time including ‘No More Mrs Moore’ and ‘My Old Man’, during which the audience are encouraged to participate.

The three founders, Joseph Cummings, Florence Taylor and Harriet Wells, will be joined by a cast of local acting and musical talent in this, the group’s third full scale production.
