A first listen to a song from new British musical Halls has been shared online.
Filmed in lockdown, a number of West End stars have got together to showcase the opening number ‘Flat 15B’ from the new original musical.
Those featuring in the performance are Grace Mouat (& Juliet, SIX), Millie O’Connell (Be More Chill, SIX), Olivia Moore (Waitress, Heathers), Tarinn Callender (Hamilton, Come From Away), Cameron Burt (Mamma Mia), Sophie Isaacs (Heathers, Kinky Boots, SIX) and Alex Thomas-Smith (Bat Out of Hell, Dear Evan Hansen).
They’re joined by new Guilford School of Acting (GSA) graduate Matteo Johnson who was part of the musical’s 2019 workshop.
With music and lyrics by George Stroud and Jennifer Harrison, Halls follows eight, first year, university students from all different backgrounds and upbringings who are brought together when they’re allocated the same flat in their Halls of Residence.
The musical follows the students over the highs and lows of their first year at University.
The show is scheduled to make a debut in 2021 with its writers committing to at least two new graduates in the cast.
Together with George Stroud and Jennifer Harrison, the creative team include Music Supervision and orchestration from Richard Morris.
The video features graphic and video design by Andrew Exeter, motion graphics and video production by Sam Diaz and mixing by Paul Pritchard.
