Cody Musical Theatre Company

1st-3rd October 2015

Don’t Stop the Music is a musical extravaganza celebrating the best of musical theatre through the decades, transporting us from the 50s, onwards through the 90s and the noughties, right up until the present day. A departure from our usual productions, Don’t Stop the Music is an exciting opportunity for us to present a diverse programme of our favourite song and dance numbers from some of the best-loved musicals over the last 60 years in one spectacular evening’s entertainment.

Our show begins with numbers from West Side Story, the American musical inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and moves on through the years featuring memorable shows like Rent, Mamma Mia, the award-winning Les Miserables and many more besides. We are finally brought up to date in the noughties with numbers from musicals such as the smash hit, We Will Rock You, Sister Act and Matilda, based on Roald Dahl’s much-loved children’s story.

We invite you to join us for this all-singing, all-dancing theatrical experience that promises to be an evening of non-stop entertainment for all the family.
