Iona Crampton has been cast in the role of Anna in Spring Awakening with Vivo D’arte at The Frogmore Paper Mill.
An international sensation and winner of 8 Tony and 4 Olivier Awards
Perhaps the defining musical of the last decade, Spring Awakening combines an electrifying rock score and genre-defying writing to tell the story of sexual and adolescent discovery. Silenced and dismissed in the firmly censored world of 19th century Germany, a group of teenagers are forced to discover the truth behind their feelings unaided. They find that through each other they unlock a bold and brave new world – with both beautiful and tragic consequences.

Marcus McManus has been cast in the role of Mickey in Harper Ragen at The Tabard Theatre.
On a startlingly bright autumn night in 2006, Harper Regan walks away from her home, her husband and daughter, and keeps walking. She tells nobody that she is going. She tells nobody where she is going. She puts everything she ever built at risk. For two lost days and nights, until it looks as though her entire life might unravel, she doesn’t turn back.
Harper meets several men – by a canal, in a pub, in a hotel room by arrangement. It is a violent, comic, heart-breaking odyssey that strains towards truth but finds acceptance is more important and unveils the dark and secret heart of Harper’s family life.
Tom Blackmore will be playing the role of Brutus in Cleopatra – A Musical in May.
Cleopatra was a charismatic woman who ruled Egypt in an age when the world was dominated by strong men, whose life simmered with splendour and sexual and political intrigue. Now this infamous Queen
and lover is brought back to life in a musical with a soaring and lavish score by Lyndon Samuel ( ‘Ghost Story’) and book and lyrics by Robert Gould (‘My Land’s Shore’). ‘Cleopatra’ The Musical focuses on Cleopatra’s conflict between her desire for power and her need to be loved, the dramatic war-torn politics of the times and the tragedy of the two men (Julius Caesar and Mark Antony) doomed by their love for her. This intimate concert performance of the show directed by Brendan Matthew (‘My Land’s Shore, ‘The Hired Man’, ‘The Kissing Dance’) will be an opportunity for an audience to see and hear a brand new musical in development.
