We popped into rehearsals for new musical Closets, which opens at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester this month.
With a cast including Hayley Tamaddon and Lloyd Daniels, the musical is based on the award-winning short film of the same name and is about the history of LGBTQ rights told with a time-travelling closet. The piece features a mix of pop music numbers and contemporary ballads.
The production has lyrics and book by Lloyd Eyre-Morgan and Neil Ely, with music by Ashley M A Walsh and choreography by William Whelton. Joining Tamaddon and Daniels are Sam Retford, Kim Tatum, Sophie Anne-Ellicott and Georgia Conlan.
