Wednesday 8 May - Saturday 11 May 2019
Coventry Youth Operetta Group (YOG) presents Starlight Express.
A child’s train set magically comes to life and the various engines compete to become the “Fastest-engine in the World!” The underdog, Rusty the Steam train, has little chance until he is inspired by the legend of the “Starlight Express.” He ultimately defeats his arch-rivals Greaseball and Electra before going on to win the hand of the lovely first class coach, Pearl.
This is the incarnation of the show that has recently toured the U.K., including a brand new song “I do” and the full “Megamix” as well as the classic songs including “U.N.C.O.U.P.L.E.D.,” “Rolling Stock,” “Pumping Iron” and the title “Starlight Express”.
YOG are delighted to present the Coventry premier of this world famous show where cast members will perform on roller skates, on a specially created race track which will wrap itself around the Albany auditorium. Starlight Express is the fastest and most dynamic musical you will ever experience, and truly is a show with something for everyone.
