It will begin performances at the Arts Theatre Jan. 19, prior to an official opening Jan. 21, for a limited three-week run through Feb. 6 only. For the record, after the Globe run, Daisy Pulls It Off was briefly revived at the Lyric Theatre in 2002.
This new production, presented by Nadine's Window by arrangement with the Really Useful Group Ltd., was first seen at the fringe Baron's Court Theatre in July 2008 and again in July 2009.
According to press materials, the show revolves around schoolgirl trials and tribulations, as super-achieving scholarship girl Daisy Meredith seeks to make her mark on the snobby setting of Grangewood School for Young Ladies. It's not all plain-sailing through these posh waters though and Daisy faces numerous challenges along the way. But by staying true to herself and remaining admirably straightforward, a positive outcome is promised as Daisy saves the lives of arch enemies Monica and Sybil, discovers the treasure of Grangewood and proves her sporting worth when she scores the winning goal at hockey.
Nadine Hanwell directs and James Sheppard designs the production, which features Lucy Austin as Daisy and Rebecca Haigh as her friend Trixie. The cst also includes Domenica (Sybil), Joanne Gale (Alice), Olivia Hunter (Dora), Christopher Kouros (Mr. Scoblowski), Lulu Miller (Belinda), Jennifer Page (Monica), Kate Sandison (Miss Granville/Winnie), Emma Scholes (Clare), Maxine Scholfield (Miss Gibson) and Robert Hartley Wainwright (Mr. Thompson).
