Derby Guildhall. The Same Sky – musical


Story by Tim Harvey Songs and Music by Phil Baggaley Designed and Directed by Daniel Ellis


Thursday 2 – Saturday 4 March Guildhall Theatre, Derby

Following a successful debut run of this unique musical in June 2016 Derby Guildhall , Open Road Productions are delighted to announce that The Same Sky – A Musical will return to the Guildhall Theatre in Derby from  Thursday 2nd – Saturday 4th March.

The Same Sky – A Musical is set in the Nottinghamshire Coalfields against the backdrop of World War I Billy, a poor miner, and Eileen, the pit owner’s daughter are passionately in love.

Forced apart by the Great War will their love survive?

Bound together with beautifully original songs set in the folk/acoustic tradition, this moving story of love, loss and reconciliation is bought to life by an ensemble of talented actors and a 12-piece band.

Made in the Midlands, the songs are written by the acclaimed songwriter Phil Baggaley, most noted for his work with Derby folk group, The Open Road. The story was written by Southwell-based author Tim Harvey.   Beautifully designed and directed by Daniel Ellis, with songs and a script that will move you deeply,  The Same Sky – A Musical is a story about how hearts and minds are won, how love conquers all and how good can prevail.

Audience comments (from the run of the production in June 2016) include: “Truly amazing, the standing ovation said it all”, “Brilliant and memorable, a must-see”, “Amazing, emotional and touching – a fabulous show with the best cast and crew”, “It stirs all emotions, BRILLIANT!”, “The songs are still going around in my head, beautifully written and wonderfully cast”, “Outstanding, a first-class musical”   Tickets: £15.
