Centre stage ready for Whistle Down The Wind

Archant

Award- winning Centre Stage, in partnership with Everys solicitors, is busy in rehearsal for its new production of Whistle Down The Wind, which will be performed from April 7, at the Exmouth Pavilion.

Whistle Down The Wind revolves around the time and place where the word teenager was invented. Swallow, a 15 year-old-girl growing up in America’s deep South in the fifties, discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks who he is and the first words he utters are “Jesus Christ”, it’s as if all her prayers have been answered. Swallow and the town’s other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outside – the townspeople who are determined to catch a fugitive hiding it their midst. As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow is torn between the two and begins to discover who she is and where she is going.

The musical, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, has amazing music featuring many songs including the Boyzone hit No Matter What! Add to this music, the lyricist Jim Steinman, responsible for many of Meatloaf and Bonnie Tyler’s hits, you have a musical for all the family whether your preference is gentle ballads or soft rock.

Whistle Down The Wind ran for 1044 performances in London’s West End but will be at the Pavilion for only seven, so don’t miss out on this musical which is rarely done locally.

If you have never seen a Centre Stage production before, maybe this is the time to try for yourself and appreciate the talent of the company, you will not be disappointed!

If you have seen the company before but don’t think this show is your “cup of tea” or you’ve not heard of it, come and be proved wrong; it is a gentle story that will tug at your heart strings and you won’t leave the theatre with a dry eye!

Tickets are available from the Exmouth Pavilion and there are special rate tickets for under 16s and OAPs.
