Previous Shows - Jack the Ripper

Billet Lane, Hornchurch, Essex
Sunday 12th & Monday 13th February 2006
Evenings 8:00pm
Sunday matinee 4:00pm

Jack the Ripper was a fantastic show for the Society. The entire cast enjoyed every moment of rehearsals and the performances themselves - and that, for us, is the biggest success we can have!

Ticket sales were not as great as we hoped (around 70%), but those who saw it enjoyed the enthusiasm of the cast and seemed to agree that this was one of our most professional looking productions. This is a huge compliment to the production team, Trevor and Malcolm, and to the cast themselves.

Photos of the show are below...

For Havering Music Makers' production of Jack the Ripper:
Director - Trevor Laver
Musical Director - Malcolm Swan

There are many tales of the events that occurred in Whitechapel in 1888 when a man who came to be known as Jack the Ripper prowled the streets. Few of these tales have been told through song, melodrama and dance. Ron Pember’s Jack the Ripper tells the story of Jack the Ripper via a lively and thoroughly entertaining musical. The songs are all in the old-tyme style and there are many laughs and jokes...but there’s also a man on the loose...and remember, “The Ripper’s gonna getcha if you don’t watch out…”
