This was Emma’s debut with Fortwilliam and she fully deserves this nomination.

All Shook Up


C’mon Everybody

Following the huge success of Sweeney Todd and The Wizard of Oz, Fortwilliam Musical Society presented All Shook Up – the latest ‘jukebox’ musical featuring some of the best-known songs of Elvis Presley including:

  • Jailhouse Rock
  • Heartbreak Hotel
  • It’s Now or Never, and of course,
  • All Shook Up
Set in the 1950s midwest in a straight-laced town, ‘All Shook Up’ tells the story of Chad, a fun-lovin’ Roustabout who comes to town and shakes things up. A truly hilarious comedy ensues as the people of the town are inspired to follow their true feelings.

Singin’ in the Rain

Singin-in-the-Rain-finaleFortwilliam Youth Group presented Singin’ in the Rain in the Theatre at the Mill on Sat 29 April.

This light-hearted spoof of frantic Hollywood takes place as the advent of sound changes all the movie-making rules and Monumental Studios prepares its romantic epic The Duelling Cavalier.

The show includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers and love ballads ever written. With a vintage score and book – and that torrential dance number – Singin’ In the Rain is 24-carat classic entertainment.
