Mike Dixon - Angela's Ashes - The Musical


Mike Dixon is the Musical Supervisor for Angela’s Ashes – The Musical, which will be touring the UK and Ireland.

 In a major musical adaptation, for the very first time, Frank McCourt’s memoir Angela’s Ashes will, this summer, be brought to the stage in an emotional telling of a childhood in Limerick and beyond, featuring unforgettable songs and melodies, told with a rare lyricism and a warm inimitable sense of humour.  As his parents struggle to provide for him and his brothers in 1940s Ireland, we follow young Frank’s escapades and experiences in a Dickensian landscape peopled by a drunken father, a helpless mother, pompous priests, bullying schoolmasters, money-lenders and dancing-teachers, culminating in his defiant escape to a new life in America
