A brand-new murder mystery play is in the works, focusing on Chesterfield’s most famous landmark, the Crooked Spire.
Songs from the medieval-based musical will be performed by community interest company, Ashgate Heritage Arts (AHA) in the historic church on the afternoon of Saturday, 16th October 2021.
This is set to be followed by a full production of the musical at the Pomegranate Theatre in May 2022.
Peter Gray, one of AHA’s directors said: “Last year we gained an Arts Council Grant to make a 40 minute video of part of the story. We streamed this in December and is now showing at Buxton Festival Fringe. Now we are going to assemble a company of 15 professional actors and musicians and recruit local choristers to put the show on at the Pomegranate.
