Half a Sixpence now open to rave reviews at the Noel Coward Theatre!

This new stage version of Half a Sixpence, the musical adaptation of H.G. Wells's semi- autobiographical novel 'Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul', is a completely fresh adaptation which reunites book-writer Julian Fellowes with George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The score is inspired by and features several of composer David Heneker's exhilarating songs from the original production, including 'Flash Bang Wallop', 'Money To Burn' and 'Half A Sixpence'. The production transfers to London's West End following a run at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper's assistant at the turn of the last century, unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society. His childhood companion, Ann Pornick, watches with dismay as Arthur is made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. Both young women undoubtedly love Arthur - but which of them should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices.

Rachel Fagg2nd September

Totally amazing; a truly uplifting performance, full of energy, emotion and humour. Delighted that we saw it!

RANDALL RIGGS1st September

Superbly talented performers. Loved every moment of the show. Go enjoy live theatre.

Mrs Chris Edmonds1st September

Good seats with enough leg-room. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. It would have been useful to know that you had to go downstairs to get to the stalls. My friend has recently had a hip replacement operation and I chose the stalls to avoid her having to walk up and down to many steps. But she managed!

Paul Podgorsek1st September

Great show, great actors, great songs! I have already seen it several times but I always come out happy and with a smile :)

The second half was fantastic whilst the first half was good but not outstanding. Cast seemed to enjoy it and put in their all.

Ute Lark30th August

I have seen it twice already as I soooo love the energy of the whole cast. It is funny, full of wonderful dancing and great voices. It was performed to perfection and a total treat for the audience. It makes so happy to see that the cast enjoys performing and bringing the happiness and energy over to the public. Thank you for 2 wonderful performances I thoroughly enjoyed. Charlie Stemp is amazing and will go on to do many great things.Stay the way you are, full of passion and delivering your best every time!

A delightful show with outstanding acting. We could not have been more pleased to have selected this show as one of the two that we saw during the two days we spent in London.

Louise Seymour27th August

Brilliant show. Charlie Stemp (amazing) and Devon-Elise Johnson (lovely voice) are great. This is the best "feel good" joyous musical in town. Catch this show before it finishes.
