When Midnight Strikes is a fun and fresh contemporary British musical by Charles Miller and Kevin Hammonds. Full of show-stopping songs and complex characters, this deftly-plotted drama is about saying goodbye to the past and accepting change.
It's new year's eve 1999 and Jennifer and Christopher welcome you to the party of parties. But when everyone has something they want to change, and plenty they want to hide, the party starts to fall apart. The clock is ticking, and when midnight strikes, what will the new year bring?
Following their acclaimed stagings of Birds of Paradise, The Baker's Wife and Lucky Stiff, MKEC Productions return to The Drayton Arms with When Midnight Strikes. MKEC was set up by Marc Kelly and Elizabeth Chadwick in 2014 who have been friends for over 12 years; their passion for live theatre, lesser known musicals and the London Fringe has proved to be a fabulous combination. They have gone from strength to strength but are now looking for help to take their theatre company to a wider audience.
The funding of this project will help with paying actors more money (which they justly deserve), set, props, rehearsal venues and theatre costs. Marc and Elizabeth believe that the vibrant London Fringe scene is full of exciting and inovative theatre that deserves a bigger audience. With your help their aim could become a reality.
