Essex Police Musical Society swap treading the boards for High Chelmer
High Chelmer will be getting an added dose of drama next week as members of the Essex Police Musical Society will be on-hand to talk to shoppers about their latest production.
The group will be performing Into the Woods, a musical that puts a distinct spin on fairytale favourites, including Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood, to weave a fantasy tale with the characters having to deal with dramatic consequences to their actions.
High Chelmer Centre Manager, Mick McDonagh, said he was looking forward to welcoming Essex Police Musical Society to the centre. “It’s going to be great having them in High Chelmer,” said Mick.
“During the week, there will be a static display with plenty of information about the performances and then on Saturday 18 March some of the performers will be in the centre in person to talk to shoppers about how they can get tickets and to provide more information about the show and Essex Police Musical Society.
“As a key part of the Chelmsford community it’s important that we help support groups from all walks of life from charities and non-profit organisations to schools and amateur dramatic groups. I know a number of the team have got their tickets ready for the performances it’s set to be real treat.”
Sally Low, Essex Musical Society social chairperson said: “It’s always a pleasure for us to meet the public and the High Chelmer displays are perfect for us. Our shows are tremendous fun and tickets are a bargain at £9 (or £7 concessions for some performances).
“If you haven’t seen an EPMS show before now is the time – Into the Woods revolves around many fairytale characters you know and love but with a musical twist! We are supporting three charities – PARC, the Essex Police 4×4 Funday for Disadvantaged Children, and the Essex Air Ambulance. It would be lovely to meet you on 18th March.”
