Love Online

Love Online

The Sainsbury Singers presented a brand new musical, ‘Love Online‘, on 31 October-3 November 2012 at Leighton Park Theatre, Reading.

Love Online is an old-fashioned tale of boy-meets-girl, with a 21st-Century, virtual twist. A musical of laptop love and sweet talk, which still winds up with a clinch and a clutch of happy endings.

Written by Andy Milburn and Nia Williams,The Sainsbury Singers was delighted to welcome Andy as Musical Director.

“The Sainsbury Singers are a fantastic musical theatre group and have really captured the essence of this comedy musical,” Andy stated.
