Over a cup of cappuccino, two young Maltese women decided to start off their little musical theatre venture which is set to give musical theatre enthusiasts the opportunity to showcase their talent.

Francesca Scerri, together with Sarah Micallef Muscat started off The Kettle Club with the aim of building a likeminded community of people that come together and sing some musical numbers with their friends and family cheering them on.

Their opening show happened last night and was held at The Thirsty Lawyer in Valletta. The girls managed to also grab the attention of Maestro Andrew Hopkins, all the way from the West End, who was the guest of honour of the very first show. Hopkins has performed alongside some of the biggest names in musical theatre including Dame Julie Andrews and Leslie Bricusse.

The opening show of The Kettle Club, titled The Love of Music, packed the chic Valletta bar with musical theatre lovers and theatre enthusiasts who all came with the aim of supporting the 11 talented local singers. They performed several Musical Theatre numbers from some of the best musicals on the West End and Broadway including Oliver, Family Adams, Waitress and Hamilton.

The best part is, that all those attending the first show, which ran yesterday, and will run yet again this evening, get to have a say in what theme is chosen for the upcoming show in March. The reason behind this? The Kettle Club aims to keep its product fresh and new as well as wants to keep the audience always excited for what’s next.

If you love musical theatre or want to show off your talent in a safe space, with a friendly bunch of people, then keep an eye out on what’s next for The Kettle Club.
