The production will bring with it a multi-talented group of actor-instrumentalists who will present a sensational two hours of live musical theatre. For Josh Haberfield, who plays Crickets drummer Jerry Allison, it’s almost a home town show. He grew up in Sopley and cut his theatrical teeth in local amateur dramatic companies.
