Crush the Musical
Published by Nick Hern Books
Large Mixed Cast
It's 1963 and the Dame Dorothea Dosserdale School for Girls has a proud tradition of fostering free spirits from all walks of life
So it's a crushing blow when the new headmistress turns out to be a tyrant with strict Victorian values
And top of her hit list are the two sixth-formers accused of 'Unnatural Behaviour' in the Art Room
Brimming with catchy tunes and witty lyrics, Crush is a hilarious pastiche of Girls' School stories a blend of Malory Towers and St Trinian's
With jolly hockey sticks and lashings of jolly good fun!
'"The all-female (except for a solitary male) cast of twelve, minimal furniture and very achievable set-building requirements will surely put Crush on hundreds of amateur drama societies' to-do lists'" ~- Sardines Magazine
"Crush taps into the subversive undercurrents of its source and brings them to the fore, producing a show that's boldly queer and a little bit crazy, yet with enough innocent exuberance to make it family-friendly, too" ~ British Theatre Guide
'Energetic, jolly, and just plain silly ... Faithfully recreating and poking gentle fun at the whole range of "girls' school" tropes" ~The Stage
Crush was first performed on tour in the UK in 2015
