Sad news, and the kind of story that we are likely to see more off in the months to come: Due to uncertainty over the current Covid-19 outbreak, the decision has been made to put the Hope Mill Theatre production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella on hold indefinitely.
Fresh from its success at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre, Joseph Stein, Stephen Schwartz and Charles Strouse’s heart-warming and powerful show RAGS The Musical will transfer to London’s Park Theatre from 9 January to 8 February 2020, with Carolyn Maitland, Dave Willetts and Sam Attwater leading the cast as Rebecca, Avram and Bronfman respectively.
Jac Yarrow’s performance in the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium was obviously a big hit with audiences as it was the public who crowned him the winner of the Joe Allen Best West End Debut Award at the 2019 The Stage Debut Awards. Maybe dreams really do come true.
