HAODS Presents: Kipps

Kipps (the new Half A Sixpence) is a new musical adaptation of H.G. Wells’ autobiographical novel Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul.

The musical tells the tale of the changing fortunes of Arthur Kipps, an orphan and draper’s assistant at Shalford’s Bazaar in Folkestone, at the turn of the twentieth century.

Kipps is an easy-going working-class lad, happiest with his banjo, however, when he unexpectedly inherits a fortune, he is suddenly propelled into high society.

He falls in love with Helen Walsingham, however her money-grabbing family soon latch onto Kipps as a way to restore their family fortune.

Filled with lively characters and much-loved songs (Long Ago, Flash Bang Wallop, Pick out a simple Tune and of course Half a Sixpence), this is a feel good musical which will set your feet tapping.
