Classic songs of the Sherman Brothers: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and more in a UK tour | Theatre | Entertainment

The Sherman brothers composed some of the greatest music in movie history during the golden era of Disney animation and live action.

Richard M Sherman and Robert B Sherman wrote an extraordinary array of all-time classics from A Spoonful of Sugar, The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers, Feed the Birds, Chim-Chim-Cheree, I wanna be like you and Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang.

You could almost say they were Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

A thrilling new musical uniting all of these great tunes and many more will tour the UK throughout March, April and May this year.

The highly prolific brothers were the sons of the great Al Sherman (1897-1973) who wrote songs for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many singers of the golden American Songbook period of the 1930s-1950s.

They found their own fame under the patronage of the great Walt Disney himself, writing some of the most memorable songs from some of his created movies.

In a truly magical end to the story, the new show has been created by Robert J Sherman, son of Robert B Sherman and a successful composer in his own right. His latest musical, Love Birds, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015.

A Spoonful of Sherman also boasts boy band star, musician and songwriter MARK READ, who was member of the smash hit number one boyband A1.

His leading lady is Olivier Award nominated SOPHIE-LOUISE DANN whose West End credits include Celia in The Girls, Bend it Like Beckham, Made In Dagenham, Lend Me a Tenor, 42nd Street, and Jolson.

The show opened this week in Darlington and will wrap up on May 18 in Exeter, including a five-day run in London.
