As well as Betty Blue Eyes, Stiles and Drewe’s musicals include Honk! which won an Olivier Award for Best Musical, and they wrote the new songs for the Disney and Cameron Mackintosh production of Mary Poppins.
Songwriting With Stiles and Drewe starts at 6pm.

The Playhouse is offering a captioned performance of Betty Blue Eyes on Wednesday, May 7 at 7.30pm.
Words will appear on a screen above the stage at the same time as they are spoken or sung.
Theatre captioning also includes additional information such as the name of the person speaking, sound effects and offstage noises.
Captioned performances offer anyone who may have difficulty hearing or understanding the audible elements of a production a more enjoyable experience.
