Made famous by the 1967 film starring Tommy Steele, Half a Sixpence tells the rags to riches story of Arthur Kipps, an orphan, who lives and works with other apprentices for Mr. Shalford. After learning that he is inheriting a fortune, Arthur tries to join the upper class and gets engaged to the wealthy Helen Walsingham. Soon, however, Arthur realises that his true love is his childhood sweetheart, Ann. Kipps and Ann were childhood friends and when they were parted, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him. Eventually, Arthur loses all of his newfound wealth, in the process learning that money does not buy everything.

With its famous songs including “Half a Sixpence” and “Flash, Bang, Wallop” as well as “The Party’s on the House” and “A Proper Gentleman”, Half a Sixpence is a real feel good show with a happy ending that will be enjoyed by all the family.
