  3. Spike Milligan’s Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall Tue 2 - Sat 6 March 2010 Lyceum Theatre Spike Milligan’s celebrated war memoirs are brought to anarchic life in this critically acclaimed touring production at Sheffield’s Lyceum Theatre from Tuesday 2 March to Saturday 6 March. This epic, everyman’s odyssey through World War Two, with a cast of extraordinary characters, charts Gunner Milligan’s progress from joining the Royal Artillery through the North African and Italian campaigns. High comedy and tragedy collide, as we follow him and his ad hoc jazz quartet – complete with their famed comedy routines – adrift on the tide of great historic events. Using Milligan’s own words, the story is told through a joyous fusion of comedy, jazz, song and dance – showing how humour, music and comradeship enabled a hapless and disparate bunch of young men to prevail against the might of the Nazi War Machine. Songs include Chattanooga Choo Choo, Ain’t Misbehavin’, In the Mood, Honeysuckle Rose and many more.

  12. Mon 1 - Sat 6 February 2010 Whistle Down the Wind Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield Jonathan Ansell, who won the heart of the nation as lead vocalist in X-Factor runners-up G4, has been cast in his musical debut, starring at the Lyceum in Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Whistle Down the Wind. In a twist of fate the bright-eyed and youthful Swallow discovers a mysterious man hiding in her family’s barn. When she asks for his identity the first words he utters are "Jesus Christ"… and it’s as though her prayers have been answered. While the rest of the townspeople are searching for a fugitive escaped from jail, Swallow gathers the town’s children who make a pact to protect their new found saviour from the cruelties of the outside world. An extraordinary and uplifting tale, Whistle Down the Wind is based on the beloved sixties film starring Hayley Mills and Alan Bates, and features numerous multi-award-winning songs, including Boyzone’s international smash hit No Matter What (which topped the UK charts for 6 weeks). The musical shows how powerful love can be when the innocence of childhood collides with the cynicism of the adult world. In a stunning combination of multi-award-winning songs, powerful all new staging and epic storytelling, Whistle Down the Wind is a record breaking theatrical sensation that is both mesmerizing and moving.
