The Dolce Vita - a new musical by Stuart Brayson

New musical The Dolce Vita by Stuart Brayson reveals workshop cast

A new musical by West End composer Stuart Brayson (From Here to Eternity) called The Dolce Vita is getting a public workshop later this week in Newcastle.

The workshop of The Dolce Vita is taking place at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House in Newcastle this Friday 18 August 2023, produced by Tyne Theatre Productions.

The workshop will star Aaron Hastings, Sally Forster, Jade Leigh Hewitt and Michael Skoyles, with narration by Alan Wright.

The ensemble will feature David Hardy, Nicola Bricknell, Jake Marshall, Estelle Denison French, Jonny Larman, Kyra Lea, David Patrick, Steph Peacock and Anna Marya-Smith

Directed by Sonia Hernandez, musical direction is by Jenni Watson, and orchestrations by Jack Elsden.

This brand new musical is set in Newcastle in 1965, centred around the fictional The Dolce Vita nightclub.

Composer Stuart Brayson said earlier this month: “I am overjoyed that the magnificent Tyne Theatre in my hometown of Newcastle will play host for the first ever version of ‘The Dolce Vita’. Big new homegrown musicals like this are pretty rare these days. It’s a lovely story; set in such a wonderful period, the north east of England in the ‘swinging’ 60s. The musical is rich with exciting characters, a fascinating casino/nightclub backdrop with two contrasting young love stories. It’s about aspiration, dreams and Fridays nights. It’s such a lot of fun. A real rollercoaster. I do hope everyone enjoys the brand new score. I think it has something for everyone. It was a total dream to write. We’ve such a brilliant team and talented cast on board for the workshop, I just can’t wait to see it all burst into life.”
