I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is the latest production by Norwich-based company Mixed Voice, and the show opens at Sewell Barn Theatre this Friday.

The show celebrates the myths and truths behind romance, exploring the journey from dating to love and marriage, and also looking at in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car, and looking for love later in life.

'It's a really hilarious musical about relationships and dating,' said Josh Lincoln, who runs Mixed Voice.

'If you like sketch shows like The Fast Show or Harry Enfield this is definitely for you. It's a lot of fun.

'There's eight people in the cast who between them play about 80 different characters. It's a sketch show done as a musical and every scene is a story in its own right.'

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is directed by Dan Smith who said it had been great fun putting the show together, and he paid tribute to the talents and the dedication of the cast.

He said: 'It is thanks to them that this show is as funny and relatable as I believe and hope it is. If the audience enjoy the show anywhere near as much as I have enjoyed rehearsing it then we have achieved what we set out to do.'

Previous shows performed by Mixed Voice include Rent and Godspell.

Later this year, Mixed Voice will be doing a full-scale musical production of Grease.

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change opens at Sewell Barn Theatre, in Constitution Hill, Norwich, on Friday and runs until Wednesday, March 18.
