The party gets wild When Midnight Strikes at the Drayton Arms Theatre

Charles Miller and Kevin Hammond’s musical, When Midnight Strikes, returns to the London stage, at the Drayton Arms Theatre, this October in a new adaptation from London-based MKEC Productions.

It’s New Year’s Eve 1999 and Jennifer and Christopher throw the party of parties. But when everyone has something they want to change, and plenty they want to hide, the party starts to fall apart.

Jennifer’s husband is having an affair – but who with? And worse, she’s just discovered that his secret lover is one of the guests at the party.

The clock is ticking, and when midnight strikes, what will the new year bring?

When Midnight Strikes is a fresh contemporary musical by Charles Miller and New Yorker, Kevin Hammonds.

The show had a hugely successful run in 2013 at The Gatehouse Theatre in London, where it was nominated for Best Musical in the Off-West End Awards.

Full of show-stopping songs and complex characters, this deftly-plotted drama is about saying goodbye to the past and accepting change.

Following their critically acclaimed stagings of Birds of Paradise, The Baker’s Wife and Lucky Stif, MKEC Productions return to Kensington’s Drayton Arms Theatre to continue their remit to showcase lesser-known musicals in the London fringe.

MKEC, run by Marc Kelly and Elizabeth Chadwick, will be joined by musical director, Oli Rew, for this must-see show for lovers of British musical theatre.

When Midnight Strikes, with Book and Lyrics by Kevin Hammonds and Music from Charles Miller, runs at the Drayton Arms Theatre from October 17-November 12.
