A charity is hoping to capture imaginations with a theatrical tribute to the outbreak of the First World War.
Walk Tall, the Messenger’s charity of the year, is putting on an original musical called 1914 Outbreak, recounting the 37 days leading up to the Great War.
Performed by Walk Tall’s professional repertory company, it was written by Robbie Humphries, creative director at the charity, with original music written by David Scott.
The Northfleet charity offers people of all ages an opportunity to express themselves through art, whether it be drama, music, photography and painting.
Mr Humphries, 42, said the music in the production would be both music hall style as well contemporary. He said: “The amount of research I’ve had to do into the First World War’s diplomatic history is incredible.”
The first performance of 1914 Outbreak is at the Refinery Theatre, Walk Tall Village, in Lower Road, Northfleet, at 7.30pm on Saturday, July 19. For information call 0845 270 8130 or log on to walk-tall.org.uk.
