About

Sanditon Productions

“Sanditon Productions” is the name used for productions written or produced by Christopher Charles Brindle. (Chris Brindle)

Chris was very proud to be the first person, and to date the only person, to complete the last unfinished work of Jane Austen and her niece, Anna Lefroy, as a Play, as a Film, and now as a Musical, hence the name “Sanditon Productions” for that and his other works.

Current Projects

‘La Vida Loca’

Original, Full Length, Collaborative, Musical Theatre Meets Latin Dance, Musical

Chris is currently working on his fourth musical, working title, “La Vida Loca” which tells in music and dance how the rhythms of West Africa were taken to the “New World” by the slaves of the Spanish & Portuguese. Commingling with the Iberian tradition, these rhythms became the Latin dances we now see on “Strictly Come Dancing”, and are the basis for the Latin songs now topping the UK Charts.

Chris is working with talented musicians, musical producers, choreographers, singers and dancers in Essex and Suffolk to bring these ideas to fruition; as audio releases, video releases, stage productions and as a documentary to show how the complex ideas spanning many different artistic disciplines were brought together.
