Last month, Musical Director Josh Mills took his production of  We Are What We Are (not just men in tights) to a delighted sell out show at the Underground Theatre, Eastbourne, with the help of some friends.

Their aim was to raise funds and awareness for the life limiting condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The show featured many classic Show Musical tunes, all with a twist and many lyrics had been re-written, for this outrageous adult comedy evening.

The event was hosted by the divine and statuesque (6’6” in heels) Billie Lewis, and included plenty of audience participation. Maisie Trollette gave a star performance to much applause and laughter. Individual numbers varied from Eartha Kitt, Adele, Wicked, A Chorus Line, Annie, Les Miserables and many more, all in the hilarious style of Forbidden Broadway.

The ensemble ended the evening with an Abba Medley, arranged especially by Josh Mills, to include a musical overlay of  One singular sensation.

The performers raised £685 for their chosen charity, and would like to thank everyone for their wonderful support.

Let’s hope it’s not long before we get to see this show in Brighton!
