Exeter Musical Society begins its 110th anniversary celebrations with the Olivier award-winning Me and My Girl. A sublime treat for musical comedy fans of all ages. Lambeth costermonger, Bill Snibson, discovers he is the illegitimate heir to Lord Hareford and uses his wit and humour to break down the class divisions with his aristocratic relations. The fun and games never cease as they attempt to educate cheeky and cheerful Bill into the ways of the gentry and to separate him from his cockney girlfriend Sally. This toe-tapping musical, which includes songs The Sun Has Got His Hat On, Leaning on a Lamppost, Me & My Girl and the famous Lambeth Walk, makes a joyful, colourful and gloriously funny show that will lift the spirits of everyone.

Originally produced at the Adelphi Theatre, London, by Richard Armitage. Subsequently produced at the Marquis Theatre, New York City, by Richard Armitage, Terry Allen Kramer, James M. Nederlanded and Stage Promotions Ltd & Co.

“…who needs to go to London these days when we have such a talented group as the Exeter Musical Society?”

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
