Les Misérables’ 40th anniversary



Next year marks Les Misérables 40th anniversary, and in celebration of such a momentous achievement, a handful of amateur dramatic groups have been chosen to stage it with a full adult licence of the show for the very first time!


Thespis are already in talks to costume two of the shows, having participated previously in the few that have been allowed outside the West End, and already we can’t wait to see it brought to life!


Our costume set for Les Mis has been meticulously crafted to suit the period as accurately as possible (we adore fine details in our costumes), and that of course extends to period footwear, firearms, necklaces, hats, gloves, dashing revolutionary garb - you get the picture. That does mean it remains, as always, an exceptionally popular show and we would strongly advise that you book well in advance to avoid missing out.


We work on first come first serve basis and cannot reserve any costumes without a contract and the relevant reservation deposits.

Well! What a start to 2024 it’s been so far for all of us here at Thespis! 
We’ve announced the imminent launching of our flagship show for this year: “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – The Musical”, which we know is going to blow everyone away with what we’ve got planned for it: Inflatable costumes, squirrel suits, glow in the dark glasses, and a literal army of Oompa-Loompas! Trust us, you are going to want to see this one!
And to top it all off, Thespis are bursting at the seams with joy to announce that we’re costuming the 10th anniversary concert for the award-winning hit West-End show ‘Made in Dagenham’ at no less than London’s largest theatre, the London Palladium, starring the ever-glorious Pixie Lott, west-end star Killian Donnelly, and the iconic British queen of stage and screen Bonnie Langford, which is gearing up to set the stage alight on the 16th of March. 
There’s nothing like a strong entrance, and we can think of no better way to announce ourselves onto the hallowed boards of the West-End than this, and we are beyond honoured to be involved. So from all of us here at Thespis, we wish everyone involved and anyone lucky enough to see it, the most magical of nights. 
Here’s to another 10!

Smash Hit for TCOS

There have been lavish productions of Phantom of the Opera in the top theatres of London’s West End and in Manchester but a non-professional society on the Fylde coast has just scored a huge success with it. Thornton Cleveleys Operatic Society (TCOS) staged this most challenging of shows to sell-out houses at Fleetwood’s Marine Hall, to rave reviews.

Based on the novel by French author Gaston Leroux, Phantom boasts a famous score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and songs such as ‘The Music of the Night’ and ‘Past the Point of No Return’.  It was huge challenge taking on such a show, with its many technical challenges and the demands on its performers, but the show has delighted hundreds of people who attended.  One show goer stated: “I know everyone was saying how brilliant it was but I just wasn't expecting the show to be as good as the hype, but it was and then some! “Congratulations to everyone, chorus, cast, orchestra and stage crew.”
