A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

Presented by Silent Uproar.

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains, sings and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK. Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and she almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it.

It’s joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! (Except for all the bits about depression).

Written by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam), with music by Frisky and Mannish’s Matthew Floyd Jones. Winner of a 2017 Fringe First and the Musical Theatre Review Best Musical.

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

WHY? ‘A mix of wit and low-key emotion that suddenly grips your heart’ The Guardian

The King and I from the London Palladium

180 mins.

Recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium. The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers.

WHY? ‘Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit’ The Times

‘We left the London Palladium on a bright cloud of music - joyous!’ Daily Mail

‘Looks and sounds ravishing. Complete rapture’ The Telegraph
