CLUB MEX – an immersive musical to open in Manchester
Club Mex, a part-immersive, part-musical clubbing experience, will get its world premiere at the Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester, from Thursday 17 January – Sunday 10 February 2019.
It’s the second new musical from Global Musicals, the producers of current West End sensation, SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, about the six wives of Henry VIII, that is currently playing a critically acclaimed sold-out season at the Arts Theatre.
In Club Mex you are on the dancefloor in the heart of the action, joining Mel and her two best mates as they experience the highs, lows and hangovers of Cancun in a heart-warming coming-of-age comedy. Grab your flip-flops…we’ll see you in Mexico!
Club Mex has a script penned by Tamar Broadbent, one of the UK’s most exciting emerging female stand-up comedians, and an infectious, original musical score by John-Victor that fuses pop, dance and musical theatre.
It is directed by West End star Julie Atherton who has been working on the development of the show with Perfect Pitch Musicals over the last couple of years. “When the guys at Perfect Pitch first approached me to get involved I knew it was an idea I wanted to play with and explore how involved the audience could be. After a workshop last year at Edge Hill university we soon realised audiences are very happy to be in the heart of where the action takes place and this piece allows them to do just that.”
As well as traditional casting, producers are offering digital open auditions for Club Mex. Applications will be via Instagram, with further details on Club Mex’s website: www.theclubmex.com
Cast and full creative team to be announced.
