KIPPS – The New Half a Sixpence Musical
Flash, Bang, Wallop! Hereford Musical Theatre Company brings you this classic British musical fresh from its recent run in London’s West End!

He is a charming but ordinary young man who, along with his fellow apprentices, dreams of a better and more fulfilling world, but he likes his fun just like any other, except not quite.

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.
