Ordinary Days is a song cycle set in contemporary New York and follows the lives of four young people as they evaluate their lives and look to the future for happiness and fulfilment. It cleverly intertwines their journeys as the piece builds to its positive conclusion, making us laugh out loud and shed a tear as the characters’ back stories are revealed and their relationships with each other grow.
In these uncertain times the committee were looking for a small musical suitable for a socially distanced audience, relying on performance above other production values – i.e. something that could be presented well on a limited budget that didn’t require a large band, complicated staging, multiple costume changes etc. Ordinary Days has a small cast of four and can be rehearsed individually to start with, moving to pairings then ensemble.
As a sung-through piece lasting about 90 minutes without an interval, it will be staged at Hampton Hill Theatre from Tuesday to Saturday with a matinee on the Saturday.
After two successful audition days we are delighted to announce the casting of Ordinary Days as follows:
Warren – Sam Sugarman
Deb – Abby Francis
Jason – Adam Stickler
Claire – Emily Murray
Rehearsals begin next week with out highly energised ensemble and production team.
