DON'T STOP THINKING ABOUT TOMORROW
A powerful new musical addressing the issues of man-made climate
change, by using human stories, not frightening statistics.
Chickenshed's Artistic Director Lou Stein says "Scientists have had
their go at bringing to our minds the global effects of not caring for
our earth. It is now up to artists to touch our hearts and bring the
issue closer home."
Chickenshed will focus on the hopes and dreams of the world and how
climate change affects the way we think now, the way we pave the way for
our future, and the way we use our resources. The issue of climate
change is a key part of the zeitgeist of today. If you look online, pick
up a newspaper, or tune into global debate - climate change is at the
heart of today's main anxieties - especially amongst young people.
Science and statistics seem to divide people's views, but perhaps the
issues which climate change presents to us is best solved by artists and
not scientists. Albert Einstein who was one of the biggest scientific
brains ever, has said "Logic will get you from A to B, but imagination
will get you everywhere!"
The story is told through the eyes of a fictional installation artist,
photographer and video artist with a research explorer's instinct. His
name is Oscar Buhari and he is of African descent, but grew up in the
industrial North of England in the shadow of tall industrial chimney's
belching out toxic carbons and smoke.
Don't Stop Thinking about Tomorrow is Buhari's performance installation
which both documents various approaches to positive solutions of the
effects of climate change and asks us all to take part in making small
steps to change the destructive path we are on. Buhari puts his artistic
talents to a use with a grand purpose - to artistically document the
human response's to the effects of climate change.

A NIGHT OF A THOUSAND HEROES
Sabrina Aloueche and Kieran Brown have
organised and produced a concert all in aid of
raising money and awareness for the North
Kensington Firefighters, who are running
London Marathon for children affected by the
"A Night Of A Thousand Heroes" will be held at The
Actors Church on 15th April 2018.
Featuring stars from across the West End from
shows such as Aladdin, Hamilton, Les Misérables, Kinky Boots, Wicked, Everybody’s
Talking About Jamie, Mamma Mia, Matilda,
Shrek, Legally Blonde, Phantom of The Opera,
and many many more.
The final line up will be announced on the official Twitter
page: @we4Grenfell in the coming days.
TICKETS FOR THE SHOW ARE AVAILABLE HERE:
A team of 9 firefighters, first on the scene at the Grenfell Tower Fire, will be
taking to the London streets on April 22nd, running the world famous Marathon to
raise £50,000 for the children most affected by the blaze.
North Kensington Red Watch were the first crew to arrive at Grenfell Tower in
the early hours of June 14th 2017. Alongside their emergency service colleagues
they battled to save lives as the worst fire since the blitz unfolded within
their own community. This year the crew have decided to take on the challenge of
running the London Marathon together to raise funds for “Kids on the Green.”
Some of which will be in attendance of this beautiful concert. This children’s
organisation was set up by community members the day after the fire to provide
free counselling, creative therapies, and fun experiences to the children who
survived or were affected by the tragedy.
One of the runners, firefighter Tom Abell said “In the weeks and months since
the fire we have grieved with, and stood in solidarity with the survivors and
community of Grenfell. Now, in 2018, we would like to help heal and re-build.
Kids on the Green is a fantastic organisation which
allows children who have seen and experienced the unthinkable to regain a sense
of normality and do what kids do best, have fun! Everyone at North Kensington
Fire Station would love the children of Grenfell to grow up with their lives
defined by happy times and achievements, not by a tragedy.”

Bishopsgate Institute presents
WEST SIDE STORY
Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard
The Great Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH
From 26th June until 1st July 2018
West Side Story is set on the streets of New York’s Upper West Side and explores
the rivalry between two gangs, The Jets and The Sharks. Amidst all the gang
warfare, Tony from The Jets falls in love with Maria, who is the sister of the
leader of The Sharks. The dark themes, sophisticated music score and electric
writing bring the story of Romeo and Juliet into the 20th century.
The Bishopsgate Institute production of West Side Story with full orchestra will
be performed to celebrate the centennials of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, who
composed West Side Story, and of Jerome Robbins, who directed and choreographed
the original production. This high-quality amateur production is presented by
arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) and ties in seamlessly
with themes highlighted in Bishopsgate Institute’s special collections and
archives which contain images and materials exploring cultural tensions and
post-war daily urban life in both New York and London. The piece is based on a
conception of Jerome Robbins, with music written by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics
written by Stephen Sondheim.
This production is under amateur licence and the actors will be amateurs, but
the creative team and the orchestra are multi-award nominated professionals who
have been invited to ensure the highest quality of experience for the cast and
audience, in line with Bishopsgate Institute’s philosophy. The production will
be directed by Toby Hine and choreographed by Lemington Ridley, with the Musical
Director to be announced. The show will be produced by Francesca Canty for
This production will be set in the stunning 120-year-old Great Hall at
Bishopsgate Institute, performed in the round with limited cabaret seating.
Providing a rare opportunity to experience the show with a full 29-piece
orchestration, played by the best up-and-coming professional musicians in an
extraordinary setting, this will be an up close and personal performance as the
streets of New York take over the Great Hall, with cast members weaving in and
out of the audience as the show goes on.
The role of Maria has gone to the brilliant Emily McDouall and the role of Tony
has gone to the hugely-talented James Gower-Smith. Anita will be played by
Victoria Greenway, Riff will be played by Luke Leahy, Bernardo will be played by
Christopher Georgiou, Doc will be played by Stephen Hewitt, Krupke will be
played by Drew Paterson, Schrank will be played by Will Howells, Velma will be
played by Claire Pattie, Anybody’s will be played by Lauren Pears and Somewhere
Girl will be played by Marsha Blake.
