SMP’s annual holiday – Cardfields

This year SMP ventured out to Cardfields for our annual holiday. After spending the last 10 years camping we thought we would try something different.

Urinetown Blog – The PSB. (Post Show Blues)

Unbelievably it is already a week since the last performance of Urinetown! It has gone by in a complete blur, mainly due to sheer exhaustion – but also because when you have worked for months on a show and had the adrenaline fuelled highs of an epic show week, the days that follow are always […]

Urinetown Blog – Opening Night!

Opening Night from Maisy Doodle, one of Urinetown’s ‘Urchin twins’. Last night, SMP’s Urinetown (the musical!) flooded onto the stage at the Millfield theatre with more energy than you could shake a mop at!

Urinetown Blog – Week 18, last week of rehearsals!

Why, hello there. My name’s Archie and I play the role of Little Sally’s Bunny in Urinetown. It’s a role that I’m relishing since he is a very different rabbit to me, which is really pushing me out of my comfort zone. It’s a non-speaking part, however it is very challenging as I’m needing to emote my rabbitness via non-verbal […]
