Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and two previous seasons at Charing Cross Theatre, Ushers – The Front of House Musical is transferring to the Arts Theatre for a six-week season from Wednesday 9 September to Sunday 18 October (press night is Monday 14 September).
Set in a West End theatre hosting the jukebox musical, Oops! I Did It Again, The Britney Spears Musical, Ushers – The Front of House Musical follows the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff selling programmes, ice creams and tearing tickets.
Over one working shift, it portrays the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of these youngsters who dare to dream… including a three-year workplace romance that is on the rocks, an untrained newbie working her first shift and the amorous manager who is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?
The cast features Ben Fenner, Rory Maguire, Alexandra Parkes, Corrine Priest, Cameron Sharp and Harry Stone.
The creative team includes: Yiannis Koutsakos (music and lyrics), James Oban (lyrics), James Rottger (book), director Max Reynolds, choreographer Russell Smith and musical director James Cleeve.
Ushers – The Front of House Musical is presented by Matthew Cundy Productions and Kouban Productions.
