Production of Joan Littlewood’s “Oh, what a lovely war” opens today

Students at Colyton Grammar school are putting on a production of Joan Littlewood’s “Oh, What a Lovely War” for the next three days.

Directed by year 13 students Alex Hall and Andrew Crump, with production by the same crew that ran Colyton’s first student-led musical last year, the satire explores the ironies and tragedies surrounding the First World War through stories and songs.

The musical is supported by a live band with refreshments provided during the interval.

Director Andrew Crump said that “this has been a really interesting project to take part in, there is a great cast and it promises to be a fantastic evening for all.”

Performances are tonight ( Wednesday 17), tomorrow and Friday at 7pm in the Cottrill Hall

Tickets are available from the School Library or by emailing where people can reserve tickets to collect and pay on the door.

The performance will cost just £6 for adults and £4 for students/children.
