Discover New Musical Theatre
Here at The Other Palace we want to create a community of people who share our passion for all things musicals. We are the London space where emerging artists can try out and refine new work, offering audiences the opportunity to see musicals in development, offer feedback and help shape the musical theatre landscape. If this is something that you would like to be part of, have a look at some of the new musicals that we have coming up…
COMING UP IN AUGUST
Wed 14 – Sat 17 Aug
A brand new musical by Noisemaker – award-winning writing partnership of bookwriter/lyricist Scott Gilmour and composer Claire McKenzie – LEGEND TRIPPERS uses joyous, energetic storytelling and song to examine the legends we are passing on today, and how we might beneﬁt others by questioning them.
Living the Dream
Wed 28 Aug, 8pm
A first outing for this new musical based on a true story, this rehearsed reading of Living the Dream has been written by former journalist and TV presenter, John Warrington. Living the Dream has attracted a wonderful cast including Debbie Arnold, Brian Capron, Stephen Donald, Bill Fellows and Diane Keen. Definitely one to watch.
COMING UP IN SEPTEMBER
Fri 13 to Sat 21 Sep, 7pm
A satirical interrogation of corporate corruption and the fragility of our aspirations, conducted with quirky humour and real heart. Featuring a coterie of cracking tunes delivered by a superb cast, this is a musical that deals with universal issues such as love, loss and loneliness in a disarmingly down to earth manner.
COMING UP IN OCTOBER
Daryl Griffith’s Zombies: The Musical
Wed 16 to Sat 19 October, 7pm
An irreverent, comedic tale of two star-crossed would-be lovers, desperately searching for each other even in death. Containing catchy tunes and cheeky lyrics, the songs will infect your brain and plague your head long after the show is over.
COMING UP IN NOVEMBER
Reputation: A New Musical
Tue 5 – Thu 14 Nov
Reputation, a major new retro musical by Alick Glass, is a compelling story of plagiarism and the female struggle for equality. It follows Michelle’s fight for recognition and the recovery of her stolen work, told through 25 original songs and romantic ballads written in the flamboyant style of the best-loved lyricists of the mid-1900s.
