Half A Sixpence London Theatre Break
See the best of the city on one of our London Theatre Breaks. See the London Eye, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe, the British Museum and lots more.
Half A Sixpence is now playing at the Noël Coward Theatre in London's West End, following rave reviews and a record-breaking run in Chichester.
Cameron Mackintosh and Chichester Festival Theatre's critically acclaimed hit musical is adapted for the stage from H.G. Wells’s semi-autobiographical novel Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul.
Starring newcomers Charlie Stemp (Arthur Kipps) and Devon-Elise Johnson (Ann Pornick), with three time Olivier Award-nominee Ian Bartholomew (Chitterlow), three time Olivier Award-nominee Emma Williams (Helen Walsingham), and Vivien Parry (Mrs Walsingham).
Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper’s assistant at the turn of the last century, who unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society. His childhood companion, Ann Pornick, watches with dismay as Arthur is made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. Both young women undoubtedly love Arthur – but which of them should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices...
Half A Sixpence reunites book-writer Julian Fellowes (Oscar-winning screenwriter and creator of Downton Abbey) with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (the musical team behind the hit stage version of Mary Poppins). The score is inspired by and features several of composer David Heneker’s exhilarating songs from the original production, including "Flash Bang Wallop", "Money To Burn" and "Half A Sixpence". With audiences on their feet every night, you won't want to miss this "joyous production" (Evening Standard) at London's Noel Coward Theatre.
