Ushers transfers to the Charing Cross Theatre
USHERS: The Front of House musical is transferring to Charing CrossTheatre for six weeks after its premiere at The Hope Theatre in Islington last year.
The new British musical will play at 10.15pm on Thursdays – Saturdays from Friday 7 March to Saturday 19 April.
Set in a West End theatre, USHERS: The Front of House Musical (Music by Yiannis Koutsakos Lyrics by James Oban & Yiannis Koutsakos Book by James Rottger Additional Lyrics by James Rottger) follows a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff, portraying the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream…
A preview performance of a new jukebox musical is due to take place, a three-year workplace romance is on the rocks, an untrained newbie is working her first shift and the amorous manager is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?
USHERS: The Front ofHouse Musical has big, bold company numbers, Fosse-like ice cream tray choreography and a script with heart, soul and an ice-bucket full of laughs.
The cast includes Ralph Bogard, Ross Mcneill, Liam Ross-Mills.
