Welcome to Sound Ideas Theatre Company and our second major production for 2017, Ushers!


“Just imagine the parts I could play”

Sound Ideas have secured the professional rights to the stagiest show in theatre! Join us for a show described as ‘deliciously bitchy!’

Following a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff, portraying the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream…

A preview performance of a new jukebox musical is due to take place, a three-year workplace romance is on the rocks, an untrained newbie is working her first shift and the amorous manager is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?

It’s that time of the week again and we’ve decided to ask each of our #stagey cast members some questions about their experiences, likes and dislikes in the world of theatre! We hope you enjoy this little insight in to the wacky world of USHERS: The Front of House Musical and can’t wait to see you at The Maddermarket Theatre this September 6th-9th.

It’s been the second busy weekend in a row for us here at Sound Ideas HQ, Maddermarket Theatre was brave kind enough to let us into the theatre early to let us shoot video footage and take promo photos for our close approaching production of USHERS!

USHERS: What a brilliant and utterly hilarious show!

Everything from the casting, singing, acting and movement to the lighting, sound, band, staging, set and props was just bang on! Well done to everyone involved in this awesome show. My only advice to people going to see it is to wear waterproof mascara as I managed to cry most of mine off!

Just been to opening night of USHERS. Funny, sweet, clever and touching. Bravo to the talented cast. Loved it.

Ushers: Well done on another excellent show. There are so many clever musical theatre references throughout the lyrics, music, choreography and even the lighting. The cast were superb……

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Ushers last night –

it has the hallmark Sound Ideas innovative staging and creativity which we’ve come to expect and love! All parts were played superbly with some amazing solos. It’s a hilarious show which I would recommend to everyone.
