A brand new musical from the pen of Robert J Sherman heads to the stage of the Adelphi Theatre for one night this September. It will take audiences back in time to the London of the 1660s, a decade in which great horror was inflicted upon the city.
As 2016 marks 350 years since the Great Fire of London, this Gala Charity Concert will raise money for the children’s charity Variety. The show not only deals with the infamous fire, but also the effects of the Great Plague, that continued to grip the city right up until that moment (with the fire itself often credited with bringing the plague to an end).
But Bumblescratch is not just a story about any inhabitant of London at the time of the fire; we focus on the character of Melbourne Bumblescratch, a rat who has carried the plague himself, as he works his way through the city.
This will be a must-see for musical theatre aficionados in September and it will be a memorable way of marking the anniversary of such a huge event as part of London’s history. With a spectacular team bringing it to life, expect great interest in the project as the year goes on.
Bumblescratch is at the Adelphi Theatre on Sunday 4th September 2016.
