"The Likes of Us" Lyrics by Tim Rice Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
An Amateur production by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd.
The AMOS committee are pleased to announce that our 2011 production will be "The Likes of Us"
The Likes of Us was the first collaboration between award-winning composers Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The relationship began when a 17-year-old Lloyd Webber received a letter from then 21-year-old Rice offering himself as a “with-it writer”. And there a winning partnership was born.
Although written in 1965, The Likes of Us has only ever been performed professionally twice, then Rice and Lloyd Webber moved onto global hits such as Joseph, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar. However, The Likes of Us was never forgotten and now with the approval of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber it has become available by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) and the Really Useful Group (RUG) to amateur theatre prior to its professional release and eventual appearance in the West End.
The Likes Of Us based upon the story of Victorian philanthropist Dr. Barnardo who established children's homes for orphans.
A percentage of the profits from this production will be donated to Barnados Childrens Charity.
