RENOWNED lyricist Sir Tim Rice is set to bring his special live musical theatre event to Poole.

My Life In Musicals – I Know Him So Well visits Lighthouse Poole on Friday, April 26.

Sir Tim said: "My Life in Musicals is a show in which I reveal all (well, nearly all) of the secrets behind the creation of some of the best-known songs featuring my lyrics.

“I have had the good fortune to work with some of the greatest composers of our time, including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, Elton John, and Alan Menken, without whose wonderful melodies I’d be at home watching television.”

The show will see Sir Tim reflect on his illustrious career at the heart of musical theatre, sharing anecdotes behind the songs along with stories of his life as well as live performances from the wonderful catalogue of songs that are synonymous with his name and collaborators.

Songs featured in the show include Don’t Cry For Me Argentina (Evita), Any Dream Will Do (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), A Whole New World (Aladdin) Can You Feel The Love Tonight? (The Lion King) and I Don’t Know How To Love Him (Jesus Christ Superstar).
