Current SHOW

Kinky Boots

We are excited to be one of the first amateur groups to bring ‘Kinky Boots’ to the stage, performing from Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th February 2022 at the London Oratory School Theatre.

Based on the 2005 British film Kinky Boots and mostly inspired by true events, the musical tells the story of Charlie Price. Having inherited a shoe factory from his father, Charlie forms an unlikely partnership with cabaret performer and drag queen Lola to produce a line of high-heeled boots and save the business. In the process, Charlie and Lola discover that they are not so different after all. The excellent writing of Harvey Fierstein combined with an infectiously upbeat score by Cyndi Lauper makes this a show that you do not want to miss out on being part of!
