The cast has been announced for an upcoming workshop of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Unmasked, based on the composer and theatre institution's life.

Siobhan Dillon, Ben Forster, Tyrone Huntley, Rosanna Hyland, Ria Jones, Stephen Leask, Anna O'Byrne and Michael Xavier will appear in the show, which looks at Lloyd Webber's life and career.

The musical is written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually) and directed by Laurence Connor (Chess) and The Other Palace has said that no two performances will be the same with the show being "not so reverential" about Lloyd Webber.

Initial plans for the musical were announced back in February, with the show slated to premiere at the Paper Mill in New Jersey, before being pulled. The workshop marking the first time the show has been heard on UK shores. The workshops are for a planned production in the USA.

The workshops will run from 29 November to 1 December with all tickets priced at £25.
