Palladium debut for Warwick Davis-produced musical

Warwick Davis 3The Warwick Davis-produced new British musical Eugenius will premiere in concert form at the London Palladium next month.

Harry Potter and Star Wars favourite Davis will also appear in the show alongside double Olivier Award winner David Bedella (In The HeightsJerry Springer The Opera), Amy Lennox (Kinky BootsLegally Blonde), Samuel Holmes (Mrs Henderson PresentsSpamalot) and Summer Strallen (The Sound of MusicLove Never Dies).

The concert performance on 29 June will also feature comedian Marcus Brigstocke as the Narrator and Brian Blessed will provide a guest voiceover.

Set in the 1980s, the show which merges an earthbound love story with a comic book superhero fantasy, has a book, music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins.

The concert performance will be directed by award-winning Ian Talbot and Olivier Award nominee Michael Jibson. Choreography will be by Aaron Renfree and Nick Winston. The sound designer will be Gareth Owen with lighting by Andrew Ellis, musical supervision by Steve Power and musical direction by Nathan Jarvis.

Commenting on the premiere, producer Davis said: “We are really excited to be bringing a brand new, original production to the London stage. The performance on 29 June will give the audience a chance to experience this new 1980s-inspired musical before it is staged in the West End as a full production next year. We have a hugely talented cast and production team, and the music is just phenomenal. We look forward to sharing our work with the first, lucky audience at the London Palladium this June.”
