Tony Crimlisk Songs

Here are some demos of songs from the four musical comedies and one pantomime I've written for our local U3A Musical Theatre Group.   There are well over fifty completely original songs in various styles including ballads, C&W, love songs and duets, comedy songs, dances etc.. The musical, 'Bob Cratchitt - Retired', was written with Dr Eric Midwinter co-founder of the U3A in the UK who wrote the script and lyrics. The scripts, music manuscripts and song backings on CD are available, without charges, to any U3A or amateur musical theatre group who would like to consider performing them.  I only ask that full rights to authorship and copyright of all the material is acknowledged.   I'd also like contacts with publishers and/or singers wanting  original songs for performance or auditions etc..  For further information and permissions contact me at:,   For more background visit my website at:    I am a member of the Guild of International Songwriters and Composers and already published by Boosey and Hawkes, Universal Edition and EMI.
