Detail Dance Company return to Mansfield Palace Theatre next week to perform the original musical The Invention Of Baked Beans.

They can be seen there from September 8-12.

Detail Dance Company’s Georgina Rixon explained more about the show, for which she has supplied the script and lyrics, with original music from Aaron Curcher.

“The inspiration was my lunch one afternoon, beans on toast and a notebook that my dear friend Cathy Brown had given me for my birthday which said “live simply, that others may simply live”. A great thought. The show will leave you uplifted and hopefully remind you how lucky we all are.

“Detail Dance Company is a small and unusual dance school/production company based in the heart of Welbeck Estate.

“I am from a theatrical family, my mother an actress and father heavily involved in set design and build. I have lived theatre.

“As I can no longer dance, I am driven to give the students every opportunity to embrace the wealth of great experience one can gain through live theatre and finding a passion.”

Through this show, Detail Dance Company are working for the Beacon Project and Framework, two homeless charities. The plan is to ask each audience member to bring along a tin of canned food alongside the ticket they buy. These will then feature in the performance and prove that “if we all give a little we make a massive difference”.

Evening performances are at 7pm (plus a 1.30pm Friday matinee).
