A Spoonful of Sherman

An all-new musical stage show, featuring the songs of the Oscar-winning Sherman brothers, is coming to Darlington Hippodrome from Monday 12 to Wednesday 14 March.

The double Oscar-winning Sherman Brothers – Richard & Robert – were a formidable song-writing team. From 1964 their partnership produced music, songs and scores for dozens of films, including Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Charlotte’s Web and The Aristocats.

The brothers were sons of the great Al Sherman who wrote songs for Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many singers of the golden American Songbook period of the 1930s to 1950s.

Featuring a highly talented cast led by Olivier-nominated Sophie-Louise Dann the show includes all-time favourites such as A Spoonful of Sugar, I Wanna Be Like You, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers, Jolly Holiday, Chim-Chim-Cher-Ee and many more.
