We are delighted to announce that, by popular demand, Joan of Arc a Musical will have a second run of performances in High Wycombe this autumn in the newly refurbished Arts Centre in Desborough Road. "The Arts Centre, in what was St Johns church, is an exciting venue for us as the simple gothic style architecture is evocative of the Middle Ages, where our story is set.

Joan of Arc a Musical to Premier in High Wycombe An exciting new musical about Joan of Arc is being performed in High Wycombe from 3-6th November 2010 at All Saints Church. At 16 years old Joan of Arc led the army of France to victory over the English. At 19 she was captured and burned at the stake. The victories of Joan of Arc and her inspiration forged France into a nation for the first time. The Musical’s Director Mark Britton said ‘We wanted to use All Saints Church because it is a medieval building which was in use at the time of Joan of Arc. Also, the Church in those days was an important sponsor of the performing arts and it seemed right to remake that connection, particularly as the heroine of the story was made a saint.’ Mark has produced and directed many musicals including Jesus Christ Superstar, The Hired Man, Godspell, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Joan of Arc a musical © will use young and talented actors and musicians in what promises to be a spectacular show. The production will be filmed for television. Joan of Arc a musical © is written and produced by Robert Bromley Davis with music and Direction by Mark Britton “Whatever thing men call great, look for it in Joan of Arc, and there you will find it.” Mark Twain.
