April drama and musicals in Chelmsford’s theatres.

April sees drama and musical productions taking to the stage of Chelmsford’s Civic and Cramphorn Theatres.

The dramatic highlight for April is ‘The Verdict’, the powerful best-selling courtroom thriller that inspired the multi Academy Award-Nominated film starring Paul Newman. The stage production stars two of the UK’s favourite actors — Clive Mantle (star of Casualty, Holby City and Game of Thrones) and Jack Shepherd (Wycliffe). A washed-up lawyer takes one last case which no one thinks he can win…or can he? The Verdict will be at the Civic Theatre and runs from Tuesday 4 to Saturday 8 April with matinee performances on Wednesday and Saturday.

Dig out your fish-tailed Parker and blow the dust off your Lambretta because the Mods are coming to Chelmsford from 29 March to 1 April. ‘All or Nothing’ is the Mod musical set to the music of The Small Faces and tells the bittersweet story of The Small Faces, Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriot. The band’s tale is one of passion and success, exploitation and tragedy, sharp clothes and killer songs. The Civic Theatre will reverberate to ‘Itchycoo Park’, ‘Lazy Sunday’, ‘Whatcha Gonna Do About It’ and of course ‘All or Nothing’.
