2nd October – 2nd November 2019
Following the massive success of The 39 Steps, The Barn Theatre in Cirencester are making preparations for their fourth Built by Barn production, and first Musical, Daddy Long Legs which opens on 2nd October and runs to 2nd November 2019
Described as Downton Abbey meets Disney, the story features an orphan Jerusha Abbott and her mysterious benefactor who agrees to send her to college, who she dubs “Daddy Long Legs” after seeing his elongated shadow. Under the conditions of her benefactor, Jerusha sends him a letter once a month, describing her new-found experiences with life outside the orphanage.
With a stunning score, beautiful story and amazing cast this heart-warming feel-good musical will be the perfect antidote for a cold autumn evening.
“I first discovered this hidden gem when the American Tour visited the UK for a limited run back in 2012 and I am so pleased that we are bringing our Built by Barn version to Cirencester. As a theatre, we have built a strong pedigree for producing high-quality musical shows and we are sure this will be as successful as some of our other great productions, such as Just So and A Secret Garden.” IWAN LEWIS – Barn Theatre Artistic Director.
