Devilish duo Bonnie & Clyde will be staging a hold-up at Lawrence Batley Theatre when Huddersfield Musical Theatre Company brings its latest production to life.

Action-packed Bonnie & Clyde promises to have audiences on the edge of their seats when the show opens from November 8 to 12.

Set in a poverty-stricken Texan small town during the 1930s American depression era, the thrilling musical tells the real-life love story of fugitives Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, and their rise to fame as the world’s most notorious pair of underworld criminals.

Dreaming of a glamorous fantasy life seen only in the movies, the couple embark on a state-wide crime spree, evading capture by the law and propelling them to the celebrity heights they always dreamed of.

The musical, based on the book by Ivan Menchell, was written by Frank Wildhorn and Don Black, and combines a captivating and foot-tapping mix of blues, gospel and rockabilly music that audiences are sure to enjoy.

Michael Hellawell, HMTC director of the show, said: “Crime never pays but it’s for our audience to decide if we should have any sympathy for our two leading characters.

“This fast-paced musical takes audiences on a truly thrilling journey. With breath-taking music and an incredibly talented cast, this is going to be one heck of a show that you don’t want to miss.”

This is the latest offering by Huddersfield Musical Theatre Company, which wowed audiences with their sell-out run of Calendar Girls The Musical in 2021.

Molly Jane Griffiths stars as Bonnie Parker, alongside Dominic Comber-Moccia as Clyde Barrow. Robin Walsh plays Clyde’s brother Buck accompanied by his long-suffering wife Blanche, played by Poppy-Jo Lumley. Kristian Cleworth, Jon Crebbin, Melanie Murray and Geraldine Mulligan also star, alongside a cast of supporting actors and ensemble.
