Amateur Production

Stepping Out by Richard Harris

Saturday 11th May

This amateur production of Stepping Out is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd and brought to you by Irving Stage Company.

Stepping Out is a heart-warming British comedy about a group of enthusiastic amateur tap dancers, who every week escape their daily lives by taking a tap dancing class in a dingy London church hall.

There’s cheerfully overweight Sylvia; Andy, a do-gooder with no confidence and a sad secret; snobby but well-meaning Vera; timid Dorothy; shrewd businesswoman Maxine; student nurse Lynne; Rose, who is just there for a good time, and widower Geoffrey, the lone male.

With the help of grumpy pianist Mrs Fraser, their teacher Mavis, a former professional dancer, is determined to get her pupils to become top tappers so they can show off their talents in a public performance. Their spirits are willing – but their feet – that’s another story!

The journey of these tentative amateurs to a confident troupe proud to take to the stage will gladden your heart – you’ll be tapping along with them!
