Not seen in the UK since 1992, saucy cult hit 'Moby Dick! The Musical' is back. Originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh, 'Moby Dick! The Musical' has a book by Robert Longden and music and lyrics by Longden and Hereward Kaye.
The anarchic and nubile girls of St. Godley's Academy for Young Ladies are in trouble! Money for the school has run out and it's threatened with closure. Determined to save their school from bankruptcy, the resourceful girls, and their unflappable headmistress come up with a plan to keep the school afloat. Using whatever they can find, the girls mount an original production as a fundraiser - a musical version of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick, featuring their own headmistress in the coveted role of Captain Ahab.

Holly quips: ‘You ladies make the tea and we’ll bring the crumpets!’ As the two conflicting worlds collide, comedy and chaos ensue in this very British comedy.
