Runs until Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 (See all dates)
A brand-new musical about football, friendship and the passing of time is set to premiere at Portsmouth’s Guildhall Studio on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd August, ahead of the new football season.
Supported by Pompey in the Community, The Guildhall Trust and Arts Council England, produced by local companies; Jacob Thomas Productions in association with Doye Mosse Productions, TEAM! explores the unifying highs and lows of life and being a loyal football supporter.
Five strangers meet, argue, share their hopes and dreams and ultimately form friendships in the terraces through a shared passion and love for their team. With a strong cast with local connections, TEAM! is inspired by the witty, powerful and authentic chants sung at grounds across the country.
Show Producer, Jacob Thomas said, “The show, written by prolific local playwrighting duo John Gleadall (music) and Greg Mosse (words) and supported by local Musical Arranger, Tony Pegler, offers an entertaining insight into the joy and frustration felt by fans up and down the country and the friendships that are formed off the pitch. Pompey fans are highly regarded as some of the most passionate in England, so it was fitting to produce this show here featuring some of the Fratton End favourite songs before adapting it for other clubs and taking it on tour across the country”.
Associate Producer for The Guildhall Trust, Benjamin Clabon said “We are delighted to welcome this new work into Guildhall Studio and be supporting it alongside Pompey in the Community. It is a real pleasure to see the Guildhall Studio, which only opened at the end of last year, being used to its full potential as a rehearsal and performance space, encouraging new works and emerging talent in the city as was intended”.
