ORONO — Big-hearted and high-spirited, the West End musical, inspired by true events, tells the true story of Charlie Price, the new owner of his late father’s Northampton shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, an entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos.

Runtime: 2 hours, 13 minutes (one intermission)
Rating: PG

NOTE! THIS IS NOT A LIVE PRODUCTION! This is a broadcast — captured for the big screen, direct from the London stage. It will still be awesome, though!

How does the broadcast work? It’s filmed in front of a live audience, with cameras carefully positioned to ensure cinema audiences get the best-seat-in-the-house view. Productions are transmitted via satellite to the CCA, then projected onto our high-definition screen — one of the largest in the state.
