Watch Hiba Elchikhe perform ‘Fade To Grey’ from the new musical ‘Worlds Apart’
The second track ‘Fade To Grey’ to be released from the new musical ‘Worlds Apart‘ can be watched below, starring Hiba Elchikhe (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Fiver).
The 90s inspired brit pop power ballad captures the moment Penny Hart (workshopped by Elchikhe) expresses her feelings of alienation among her peers in her private boarding school surroundings. As the musical develops, Penny finds her confidence in leadership and leads the change for female empowerment within the school, correcting the system and bringing down the bullies.
The production is being developed by West End star Ruthie Henshall’s production company Three Pin Productions. She says “Worlds Apart is a quintessentially British new musical with all the energy and youthful optimism that is still desperately needed 20 years on.”
Set between two schools separated by a fence in South London 1999, Worlds Apart follows the comedic coming of age journey between Dylan, an educational misfit with the gift of the gab and Kevin, an academic fantasist with social anxiety. Two 17 year olds on the cusp of a new millennium where anything seemed possible and youth culture defined the rules. Driven by an anarchic brit pop influenced original score, the boys push the boundaries of classroom order, taking their future’s into their own hands to beat the system.
Future production information to be confirmed but further content from the production’s workshop staring the rest of the workshop cast is rumoured to be released.
