Welcome!

We are really excited to share with you our new adventure!

We are creating an exciting way of seeing live musical theatre, outside on the beautiful grounds of Betley Court Farm with the stunning landscape of Staffordshire, as our natural backdrop.

As a response to the pandemic last year Reuben Speed and Sasha Regan of The Union Theatre, London produced an outdoor musical theatre concert called 'Songs Under The Stars'. They utilised some of the West End's most dynamic performers who all orignated from the surrounding area. The cast included Gemma Sutton (The Girl from The North Country, Gypsy), Joel Montague( Waitress, School of Rock), Joel Harper-Jackson (Kinky Boots, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Bree Smith (Evita, Book of Mormon).

Their idea was to showcase the talent from the local area and create a positive experience for a unprecentended time. 

This year, after nearly 18 months without performing and to celebrate the return of live musical theatre the team, that brought you 'Songs Under The Stars' have created a unique 90 minute version of Irving Berlin's 'Annie Get Your Gun'. Starring Gemma Sutton and Joel Montague as Annie Oaklely and Frank Butler. This Broadway classic features the iconic songs that everyone will be humming to, with outstanding songs like 'There's no Business like Show Business' and 'Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better'. We will be using the 1999 Peter Stone version, that starred Bernadette Peters. 

So grab your picnic blankets, popcorn, cowboy hats and checkered shirts, and come for night of escapism; where we will show you there really is 'no business, like show business!'  

We look forward to welcoming you back!
