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!
Recommended forChampions of original musicals will find Ushers hugely entertaining – fans of theatre will adore the barrel full of in-jokes! With sexual innuendo and a very surprising ending, this production is not suitable for young children.
