Casting has been announced for Joybubbles, a new musical by Carl Grose and Alex Silverman, which is part of the Work in Progress initiative at The Other Palace.

Directed by Raz Shaw, the cast is led by Jonathan Slinger (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), with Evelyn Hoskins (Carrie) starring as Little Joe.

They are joined by Esh Alladi, Emma Thornett, Ben Fox, Ceri-Lyn Cissone, Terence Frisch, Julie LeGrand and Stuart Matthew Price.

Joybubbles tells the story of Joe Engressia, who was born in 1949 completely blind but with perfect pitch.

The Work in Progress series aims to present work at varying stages of development, and offers audiences the opportunity to see the work at a fraction of a cost of a regular show – tickets start at £7.50.

Joybubbles plays The Other Palace on Saturday 17 June.
