SMASH-HIT shows provide the inspiration for a summer concert by a north Derbyshire musical theatre group.

Excerpts from Les Miserables, We Will Rock You, Jesus Christ Superstar, West Side Story, Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast will be aired at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre, on July 25 at 7.15pm.

Young people from Inspirations Theatre Company will perform in Thursday’s concert.

Company founder Dot Clarke said: “Originally we were going to do the musical Bad Girls but because overheads have shot sky high we dare not risk a loss in revenue to pay for it.

“I came up with the idea that we could do a concert version of Les Miserables but were informed that 25 minutes is only allowed in concert form and strictly without costume.

“It was decided that we could therefore do excerpts from musicals and as a result we have put together a fantastic evening of entertainment.”

Inspirations are currently looking for more boys and girls of all ages, in particular boys, for the company’s production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Mansfield’s Palace Theatre in September.

Dot added: “Our production for March 2014 is Grease at the Pomegranate Theatre.”

Tickets for next week’s concert at the Pomegranate cost £10 and £9 (concessions). To book, contact 01246 345222 or www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk
