designed for schools and youth theatres.
At turns both dark and humorous, this fast-paced theatre spectacle covers a wide range of musical styles from choral to funk, and includes full-cast numbers as well as poignant solos and haunting duets.
Henry VIII The Musical has been successfully performed in schools and at three professional theatres, including the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, the 1100 seat Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, and the prestigious Britten Theatre, London. The show was selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company to headline its Open Stages National Showcase of Talent in July 2012.
The production has been promoted by the likes of Stephen Fry; Wicked Star, Kerry Ellis; and world-renowned Tudor historian, Alison Weir.
