The Over Players have been fortunate to secure the licence to perform Me and My Girl, first presented in this version (re-written by Stephen Fry) at the Adelphi Theatre, London on 12th February 1985.  The musical was subsequently revived at Chichester Festival Theatre from July to August 2018, starring Matt Lucas as Bill and Caroline Quentin as the Duchess of Deane.

Overview:
 
"Bill Snibson, a Lambeth costermonger, is revealed to be the new Earl of Hareford and his newly-discovered aristocratic relations are horrified. Bringing him to Hareford Hall, they attempt to educate Bill into the ways of the gentry and to separate him from his cockney girlfriend Sally.  The result?  Chaos of the most comical kind!  With a host of hilarious characters, witty one-liners and several toe-tapping, uplifting songs (including the famous Lambeth Walk,  The Sun Has Got His Hat On and Leaning On A Lamp Post), Me and My Girl is a sublime and sunny treat for all fans of musical comedy!"

 
There are over 20 named parts, several cameos and great songs for the chorus.

 We do hope that you will join us for this wonderful show!


If you are unable to make the read-through but would like to audition for a part or participate in the show in any other capacity, please let us know as soon as possible.

Concert - Songs from the Shows

Friday 26th November and Saturday 27th November 2021 at Over Community Centre

With all the uncertainty around, we made the tough decision not to produce a pantomime this year. However, not wanting to be beaten, we decided instead to put on a concert of popular songs from some of the big musicals we have performed over the years such as Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Me and My Girl and The Sound of Music.

The concert was a great success - thank you to all who joined us on stage and everyone who came to see it!
