Tickets £18.50* (£16.50* conc)

Wirral writer Brian McCann’s Down Our Street is the musical play celebrating the life and times of Cammell Laird, from the industrial revolution to the present day. For well over a century and a half, ‘The Yard’ was the employer of thousands upon thousands of people from, the Wirral, across the water in Liverpool and beyond. The town of Birkenhead was built around the Shipbuilding industry and most families, if not all had some connection to Cammell Laird. Through drama, comedy and song, Down Our Street celebrates this through the eyes of the people of Merseyside and the workers ‘down the yard’.

The show, once described in the media as ‘Birkenhead’s Les Miserable,’ has had several outings, the last being a 3 week run at Liverpool’s Royal Court attracting an audience of over 10,000. In Active Drama’s twentieth year we’re bringing together a fantastic cast for this special ‘homecoming’ production. Many of the faces from the Royal Court will be returning including Suzanne Collins, Roy Brandon, Lesley Butler and Lynne Fitzgerald. We are also very pleased to announce that Merseyside legend Billy Butler will be joining the cast for this 2017 production.

If you like nostalgia and enjoy a great show with memorable songs, get Down Our Street in March 2017

"Down Our Street is a triumph of belief and sincere honesty and a wonderfully funny, enlightening, educational and sometimes heart-breaking musical" Ian D. Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision

"There were great moments of humour, wonderful singing and plenty of tear jerking scenes from a fabulous cast who each performed a multitude of characters ranging from upper-class toffs through to rank and file working(and shirking) Merseysiders. They did so with passion and compassion, giving a performance of the quality we have come to expect of the Royal Court and doing fine justice to Brian McCann's script." Chris Birchall, The Hairy Photographer

Originally produced by Lincoln Centre Theatre, New York

The SS America sets sail from New York to London.

Onboard is a glorious collection of colourful 1930s characters – a lovesick stowaway, a brassy nightclub evangelist with an eye for the men, a beautiful debutante and her doting (but dotty) mother, a boozy and lecherous old tycoon, a bumbling gangster disguised as a priest, a silly-ass English Lord with a mysterious past and a whole ship full of tap-dancing sailors and high-kicking chorus girls!

An amateur production by arrangement with MusicScope and Stage Musicals Ltd of New York.

*Includes a £1.50 per ticket fee. Fees capped at the first 8 tickets. No fees to Friends of the Floral.
