Stepping Out

Written by Richard Harris 

A warm and very funny play about the lives and loves of a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap dance class in a dingy North London church hall. The class is led by retired professional dancer Mavis who tries to whip into shape a group of ladies (and one man) who initially join the class for social reasons to moan about their problems and make new friends. However, as the classes continue the dances improve to the extent that they are able to perform a routine in a Grand Charity Show. They have been transformed into triumphant tappers worthy of any chorus line.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Sister Act JR

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.
