Casting has been announced for the work in progress presentation of brand new family musical The Little Beasts at The Other Palace this summer.
This dark and imaginatively comic musical follows a selfish little girl who runs away from home and discovers a magical menagerie filled with animals that used to be children before their naughtiness brought them to untimely ends. When the menagerie’s menacing proprietor tasks her to choose one animal to set free, she must decide which one, if any, has learned its lesson. But things are not what they seem, and is any child truly naughty?
The Little Beasts is a work in progress production and will have a number of public sharings. Audience members will be invited to help with the development of the show by offering feedback and opinion to the creative team. The show will change over the course of three weeks of public performances.
Sebastien Torkia plays the Man in Black alongside Laura Baldwin and a cast of ensemble actors that consist of Oliver Evans, Seyi Omooba, Nina Bell and Tyler Fagan. The Little Beasts is directed by Jamie Hinde and Nick Barnes, with book and lyrics by Michael Conley and composition by Luke Bateman.
The Little Beasts plays The Other Palace from 14 – 29 July 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
