KATS Musical "Whistle Down the Wind"Distance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 3 miles 25th - 28th March, 2020
KATS are proud to present WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman
A fugitive is caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young. Described in The Daily Telegraph as “Lloyd Webber’s best show since Phantom", Whistle Down the Wind delivers superb, uplifting entertainment. The emotive score combines hauntingly beautiful love songs and explosive rock music.
When a group of children discover a delirious, injured stranger hiding in their barn, they apprehensively ask who he is. When he replies “Jesus Christ”, the children vow to protect him. Meanwhile the townspeople are determined to track down an escaped convict known to be hiding in their midst…
Set in America’s deep South in the late 1950s, this epic musical is based on the novel of the same name by Mary Hayley Bell and the film starring Hayley Mills and Alan Bates.
