The Over Players have been fortunate to secure the licence to perform Me and My Girl, first presented in this version (re-written by Stephen Fry) at the Adelphi Theatre, London on 12th February 1985.  The musical was subsequently revived at Chichester Festival Theatre from July to August 2018, starring Matt Lucas as Bill and Caroline Quentin as the Duchess of Deane.

“Bill Snibson, a Lambeth costermonger, is revealed to be the new Earl of Hareford and his newly-discovered aristocratic relations are horrified. Bringing him to Hareford Hall, they attempt to educate Bill into the ways of the gentry and to separate him from his cockney girlfriend Sally.  The result?  Chaos of the most comical kind!  With a host of hilarious characters, witty one-liners and several toe-tapping, uplifting songs (including the famous Lambeth Walk,  The Sun Has Got His Hat On and Leaning On A Lamp Post), Me and My Girl is a sublime and sunny treat for all fans of musical comedy!”

There are over 20 named parts, several cameos and great songs for the chorus.

Wednesdays 7.45 – 10pm  in the Church Hall, Over  Plus extra rehearsals for principals as required.
Everyone will also be required for rehearsals on Sunday Evenings leading up to the show 22, 29 May and 5 June, plus the whole of Show Week
