Casting has been announced for new musical The Buskers Opera at the Park Theatre.
Olivier award-winning George Maguire (Sunny Afternoon) and Lauren Samuels (Bend It Like Beckham) will star in new musical The Buskers Opera.
Directed by Lotte Wakeham (Matilda, Sweet Charity), The Buskers Opera is a hilarious new musical from the pen of one of the hottest writers emerging in UK theatre, Dougal Irvine.
Inspired by John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera, the show promises reckless abandon of political correctness and some top class tunes to redefine a golden age.
Other cast members include Natasha Cottriall (Into The Woods, Future Conditional) as ‘Lucy Lockitt’, John McCrea as ‘Filtch’, Maimuna Memonas ‘Jenny Diver / Dissenter / Beggar’, and Giovanna Ryan as ‘Susan / Beggar / Dissenter’.
The Buskers Opera will run from 28 April 2016 until 4 June 2016 at Park Theatre.
