This is the official songbook for the brand new stage version of Half a Sixpence. The show opened to rave reviews and is currently playing at the Noël Coward Theatre, London. This musical adaptation of H.G. Wells’s semiautobiographical novel ‘Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul’, is a completely fresh adaptation which reunites Julian Fellowes (creator of Downton Abbey) with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the musical team that co-creator Cameron Mackintosh first put together to create the hit stage adaptation of Mary Poppins. The score is inspired by and features several of composer David Heneker’s exhilarating songs from the original production, including ‘FlashBang Wallop’, ‘Money to Burn’ and ‘Half A Sixpence’.
