WHAT WE DO
We stage all new professional musicals
and develop new musical theatre talent
LITTLE SHIPS BY DANNY MCAVOY
Our first new musical
In 2023 we plan to stage a pilot production of Danny McAvoy's original musical Little Ships at the Barnfield Theatre Exeter 0n the 1st to the 3rd of June. This production will be funded by Danny. Following a successful pilot, we plan to seek Arts Council funding for a touring production of Little Ships, initially in Devon and Somerset and then elsewhere in the UK.
Little Ships is a two act, 140 minute long original story set in war-time England in 1940. It is about growing up, taking risks, finding self and inner strength, of taking responsibility and overcoming adversity. It is also a story of family commitment, fidelity and love.
Our Little Ships pilot production has its own website at
NEW MUSICALS & NEW TALENT
New writers, actors, singers, dancers and stage crew
At the core of Purrple Cat CIC is the desire and drive to help new people get into musical theatre. We offer opportunities for new people to act, sing and dance alongside our professionals and we enable them to shadow and learn from our professional cast and crew.
Our pilot cast for Little Ships will include professionals, performing arts students and 2023 graduates of The University of Exeter and Plymouth University and local amateur performers.
