Ian Mcfarlane's musical comedy Betwixt! opens at Trafalgar Studios 2 on 28 July (previews from 26 July) for a limited run to 20 August 2011.

The show, which Mcfarlane also directs, features a cast of characters including sex-crazed nymphs, hunchbacks, cross-dressing mutes, dancing reporters, enchantresses and a disembodied head with a Bavarian accent.

As recently reported, the cast will be led by Wicked star Ashleigh Gray, History Boy Steven Webb, and Benedict Salter making his West End debut. Following the casting news, a series of posters for Betwixt! have been revealed, including individual shots of the individual cast members and a group poster.

Betwixt! tells the story of New York writer Bailey and his flamboyant roommate Cooper who are catapulted into a strange enchanted world. Their arrival fulfils a prophecy telling of a brave hero and a great queen and they are tasked with searching out a fading daytime TV star who is the only hope for saving a pregnant princess from losing the throne. The musical promises "sitcom-styled dialogue and a toe-tapping score".

The show premiered at the Kings Head Theatre before being staged for one night at the Ambassadors Theatre in October 2008. The concert style production starred Tim Howar in the role of Bailey alongside a cast which included David Bedella, Sheridan Smith, Abi Newberry, Rosemary Ashe, Sarah Lark, Stefan Booth and Roberta Mann

Betwixt! has choreography by Grace Harrington and is produced by Christopher D Clegg.
