About Crazy For You

He’s a fish out of water and she’s a real catch

Theatre-mad Bobby Child is torn between his show-business dreams and running the family bank. He reluctantly heads west to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theatre’s mortgage, only to fall for the theatre owner’s daughter, Polly. Desperate to prove his good faith, Bobby decides to put on a show – complete with dancers from the glamorous Zangler Follies in New York City – to save the theatre, renew the town and hopefully win Polly’s love.

With a riotously entertaining book by Ken Ludwig and overflowing with glorious Gershwin melodies (including Someone to Watch Over Me, I Got Rhythm and They Can’t Take That Away from Me), this large-scale production boasts 17 orchestra members and an incredible 34 strong cast. It’s a joyful celebration ‘blessed with ingenious, sparkling choreography from Susan Stroman, which sends you out on a high from the joy of music and dance’ Financial Times. The original production of Crazy For You won several Tony® and Olivier Awards, including Best Musical.

What our teachers said

“The show was fantastic excellent staging and choreography”

Drama Teacher, Connaught School for Girls

“This is an absolutely stunning show! It was genuinely beautiful in terms of the dancing, the singing, the orchestra, the set, the costumes. Everything came together to showcase what musical theatre should be! Charlie Stemp is real triple threat! I booked tickets to see this again immediately on the train home.”

Adam Millard, Assistant Headteacher, Queen’s School

“We really really loved it. So fun and uplifting.”

Sarah Grimshaw, Head of Drama, Broomwood Hall School

Loved it. Brilliant! The performances were brilliant and the music was fantastic. We laughed a lot! Charlie Stemp is fabulous.”

Head of Drama, Croxley Danes School

“Amazing, the choreography was incredible.”

Drama Teacher, Langdon Academy

“Absolutely wonderful performances from all cast! Such a classic show, full of laughs and outstanding choreography. The leads were both so impressive and the ensemble added constant interest throughout. Really enjoyed the whole evening and a beautiful theatre set too.”

Emily Smyth, Director of Drama, Henrietta Barnett School

“What a sensational evening! I saw a production in the West End in 1996 of this show but this was a whole different level. Laugh out loud funny, superb production values and stunning cast performances across the board – there was not a weak link in the entire show. Love the new orchestrations and want to see it again (and again…)”

Director of Music, Willington Prep School

“We loved this show!! Superb set, costume and lighting design, stunning choreography and incredible “showstopper” ensemble numbers! The best possible example of an “old school” musical. Charlie Stemp is flawless in the lead role and the rest of the cast support him brilliantly. Don’t miss this show!”

Emma Webb, Assistant Head (co-curricular) and Drama Teacher, Croydon High

“The dancing was incredible and there were some really great one liners throughout the show. Very enjoyable and entertaining, although the running time was a bit long.”

Head of Drama, Grey Court School

“Really enjoyed this show which was upbeat and fun and really great seats in the stalls too! The choreography was inventive and reminded me in part of STOMP using what was around to dance with or upon and full of clowning and exaggerated characters with the leads being brilliant!”

Moya Brewer, Drama Teacher, John F Kennedy Catholic School

“Absolutely phenomenal. I’d forgotten how amusing the script was, I laughed all the way through, but also got emotional at the right moments. I thought the performers were all excellent, tap is my favourite style of dance so those numbers were particularly stand out for me. The staging and scenery were so effective and executed so smoothly, you hardly noticed. The sunset at the back was particularly beautiful. All the costumes were fabulous, especially the Zangler Follies with the wings, the dream girls and Polly’s final dress. I enjoyed the show so much and would definitely love to go back. Thank you so much.”

Ginnie Morris, Head of Music, Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School

“Clever and brilliantly funny! I have a new favourite musical. I can’t fault a single thing about this show, every tiny detail was absolutely on point. We all loved it.”

David Wright, Music Teacher, Orchard Park High
The School Trip Crazy For You Main 2 1000x710 623

“We really enjoyed the show. The first Act in particular was incredible with show stopper after show stopper. The orchestra sounded incredible (shame we couldn’t see them) The dancing was excellent and in total style of the piece.”

Georgie Tanner, Drama Teacher, Wallington County Grammar School

“I thought the show was fantastic! We had amazing seats thanks! Funny, engaging, full of energy, great singing, great dancing! Loved it! Hummed the tunes all the way home! Would go again!”

Drama & Dance Teacher, Sackville School

“We thought the show was fantastic, everything from the costumes, to the set, to the dancing which was flawless! If I had one thing to say it’s that I’m jealous I can’t dance that well!”

Joe Bullen, Drama Teacher, Pioneer Secondary Academy

“The show was absolutely amazing! I loved every second. The production, set, costumes and props were fantastic! The dancing was out of this world.”

Claire Ruby, Drama Teacher, Orchard Park School

“It was absolutely amazing!! Highly recommended!! Very uplifting, funny, inspiring, imaginative, innovative and full of positive vibes and energy. Amazing choreographies, the actors/dancers were brilliant and gave their best! Very clear drama techniques in place, so definitely a great show for students to watch, observe and learn. It was a tsunami of colors, beautiful songs and unforgettable images. I enjoyed every single minute of it. Words fail do describe how good this show is. It is a must see!!”

Drama Teacher, Philpots Manor School

“I thoroughly enjoyed the show, in particular the big dance numbers and the glamorous costumes! We sang and danced our way out of the theatre.”

Rachel Board, Head of Drama, Highgate Wood School

“The show was fantastic from start to finish. Amazing performances from the whole cast, breathtaking costumes and wonderful and witty choreography. I would definitely consider bringing a school group. Many thanks for an incredible evening.”

Shaunaid Crosby, Head of the Arts, The Valley School

“This was an amazing show; it was lively, entertaining and funny. All performers were excellent. The choreography was clever and enhanced each number beautifully; often using humour. I would highly recommend for older students studying dance or drama to see this traditional style show.”
