It has been announced that an original cast recording of Made in Dagenham starring Gemma Arterton is being made.

The new musical, which is closing on 11 April 2015, is based on the 2010 film, and also features in the cast Adrian Der Gregorian, Sophie-Louise Dann, Isla Blair, Steve Furst and Mark Hadfield.

With music and lyrics by David Arnold and Richard Thomas, Made in Dagenham has songs including "Everybody Out", "Stand Up" and "In An Ideal World".

It was also announced last week that a cast recording is being made for Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton - the first ever album featuring a British cast.

Official release dates for both albums are to be announced.
