It was nominated for ten awards and wowed sell-out crowds on its debut professional run in the West End last year and a Croydon am-dram group will be hoping their version of a musical fairytale goes like clockwork too.

Mitre Players will take to the outdoors for an open air performance of Michael Webborn and Daniel Finn’s The Clockmaker’s Daughter this month.

The show is at the Courtyard Theatre at Croydon High School from July 13 to 15 and is about, as the title suggests, a clockmaker’s daughter called Constance who wants to escape her father’s stifling house and experience life and love.

Caterham teaching assistant and mum-of-two Megan Brown plays Constance and first appeared in her first Mitre Players show as a four-month-old baby.

She said: “It's a magical story with a real family feel. The music is lovely and people will go away singing bits of it.”

The Clockmaker’s Daughter is at Courtyard Theatre, Croydon High School, from July 13 to 15. Tickets cost £12. Call 07914 763422 or go to
