The Secret Code – ONLY £99.99!! – AVAILABLE NOW

One of our most popular musicals, the Secret Code is set in England during the Second World War. It follows a bunch of London evacuees to the English countryside as they try to crack a secret German code and save the country from invasion. This production goes down well with everybody and evokes some much-cherished nostalgia for the England of the 'olden days'! The performers love perfecting the accents (the East End characters in particular!) and the audience can enjoy trying to crack the code as much as they can enjoy the performance itself.

Content

The show has everything from East End mums to inconspicuous spies. The original songs are infectious and there are plenty of roles for girls. Take a look at the show’s storyline and characters below then listen to the songs. There are also plenty of photos in the picture gallery so you can get a really good feel of what you can expect from your own production of the Secret Code musical.

World War

It isn't (quite) all fun and frolicking - this musical acknowledges the worry of the war while creating an upbeat musical about solidarity and working together. We haven't forgotten those important historic characters (the good and the bad) to make sure even the young performers know their stuff! Secret Code is a fresh, funny and entertaining musical providing a good old blast from the past!
