More details on the forthcoming online concert streaming of brand new musical Treason has been unveiled.
Based on the notorious gunpowder plot of 1605, the world premiere of this musical will be filmed at Cadogan Hall and feature an all star cast of some of the West End's most talented performers including Lucie Jones (Legally Blonde, Waitress), Oliver Tompsett (& Juliet, Kinky Boots), Daniel Boys (Falsettos, Nativity Rocks!), Waylon Jacobs (Hamilton, Memphis), Bradley Jaden (Les Misérables, Wicked), Emmanuel Kojo (Oklahoma!, Show Boat), Rebecca LaChance (School of Rock, Beautiful), Cedric Neal (Chess, Memphis), Sharon Rose (Hamilton, Caroline Or Change), and alongside the multi-talented poet, writer and performer, Debris Stevenson (1st Luv, Poet in da Corner), as the show’s narrator.
With the producers’ commitment to ensuring the cast can rehearse and perform in the safest possible work environment, the concert will now be postponed by a month and will stream between Friday 12th to Sunday 14th March.
The concert features a fusion of original folk and pop songs with music and lyrics by Ricky Allan and a book by Kieran Lynn and Ricky Allan.
