Half a Sixpence

The next show CAOS are performing is David Heneker’s ‘Half a Sixpence’. Based on the 1905 novel ‘Kipps’ by HG Wells, ‘Half a Sixpence’ centers around Arthur Kipps a young draper working in Folkestone.

Kipps, having been working class all of his life, comes into a fortune and has to decide which life to choose. The story is aided by two love interests, Helen & Ann, who both try and persuade him towards a different life with a different girl.

With a very well received recent revival, Half a Sixpence is a timeless musical with a plethora of rousing numbers certain to get the toe tapping and the pulse racing. From ‘Flash Bang Wallop’ to the titular ‘Half a Sixpence’ this show has something for everyone. For more information on tickets and dates, please see the tickets page.
