Line-up announced for the 2nd episode of All That Scratch
Posted 19th March 2019
The line-up for the second episode of All That Scratch has been announced, with brand new musical theatre songs from emerging talent. The pieces will be performed live at the recording of the second episode of the podcast on Mon 25 Mar, tickets are available here.
There will be a mixture of individual numbers representing the seed of an idea for a new musical, and songs from more developed pieces. The full line up was curated from open submissions over the past few months.
The featured pieces include the songs ‘The Sex Talk’ and ‘Mist’ from Just A Phase? with lyrics by Zoe Morris and music by Meg McGrady; ‘The Girl Who Has It All’ from The Complete Guide to Being A Girl with music and lyrics by Anna Shields and book by Emily Garsin; ‘A Woman in Love’ from Cleopatra with music by Lyndon Samuel and book and lyrics by Robert Gould; ‘Who Needs Another Fairytale’ from Steep Themselves in Night by Jude Taylor; and ‘America’ from 8 with music and lyrics by Charli Eglinton.
It’s a hugely exciting selection of brand new songs, including themes of sisterhood, self-love and female empowerment; LGBTQ+ coming-of-age and relationships in a catholic school; and a 1920s steampunk mafia epic. A small snapshot of the vibrant new musical theatre writing in the UK.
