Ushers: The Front of House Musical Tickets

Arts Theatre

Smash-hit, Off West End extravaganza Ushers: The Front of House Musical returns to a London stage for a limited season at the Arts Theatre. An entirely original new musical, Ushers follows a stressed front of house team as they prepare for a preview performance of a jukebox musical. Packed full of fosse-like choreography, an original score and plenty of laughs, Ushers promises to be wildly entertaining!

After a wildly successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, smash-hit festival favourite Ushers: The Front of House Musical returns to a London stage for a limited season at the Arts Theatre. Previously premiering at the Hope Theatre in 2013, before transferring to Charing Cross Theatre in 2014, Ushers: The Front of House Musical is the hilariously bold, brassy new musical that tells the tale of backstage antics!

Following a team of front of house staff during a normal working shift, Ushers is a combination of ridiculously funny, moving and truthful stories of those aspirational ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream. When a preview performance of a new jukebox musical is about to take place, a new girl begins her first shift, a three-year work romance is on the rocks and the amorous manager is under pressure to cut costs wherever he can. What on earth could go wrong?

Ushers: The Front of House Musical features a cast of successful drama school graduates, including Ben Fenner, Cameron Sharp, Alexandra Parkes, Corrine Preist, alongside Rory Maguire (Shrek the Musical) and Harry Stone (EastEnders).

Directed by Max Reynolds, Ushers is an entirely original new musical, featuring music by Yiannis Koutsakos, lyrics by James Oban and Koutsakos, with a book and additional lyrics by James Rottger. With choreography by Russell Smith and musical direction by James Cleeve, Ushers: The Front of House Musical is the big, bold musical with fosse-like choreography and unique music. Full of soul, laughs and some backstage truths, this new musical is not to be missed!

This show was so quirky and fun! I loved the music and the characters and the diversity in the actors and characters portrayed. I liked that the set was simple, it didn't need anything more, plus it was having to work round the set that was in place Read more
