AMBITION, desire and a love of live performance come together as Musical Theatre Salisbury presents its new show This Is My Song.

Salisbury writers Ben Occhipinti and Mark Powell have collaborated to produce this musical review show based on the real life stories of people all over the country who perform in amateur musicals.

This Is My Song captures the highs and lows of being an amateur musical society member from joining for the first time, to the challenge of auditioning and the thrill of being part of a show.

Performances start in the Salberg Studio at Salisbury Playhouse from April 2 to 5 at 7.45pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.45pm.

The show will then be performed at Winterslow Village Hall on April 10, Downton Memorial Hall on April 11 and Dinton Village Hall on April 12 at 7.30pm.

The cast of 20 includes Musical Theatre Salisbury stars Laura Simmons, David Simmons, Jenny Mears, Martyn Davis, Derrick Foord, Kate Sheppard and Bethani Holme, but every member of the cast gets the chance to take centre stage.

Liz Weager is musical director while Iain Scott Hooper leads a talented group of musicians.

“This is an absolute must for any musical fan,” said a spokesman from Musical Theatre Salisbury.

“Tap your feet, dry your eyes and open your ears to a musical box of frustrated ambition and hilarious confessions.”

Tickets are £10 and can be booked through the Salisbury Playhouse box office on 01722 320333 or
