The cast has been announced for the new musical Closets, which opens at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester this summer.

Based on the award-winning short film of the same name, the musical 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 musical's cast will be composed of The X Factor finalist Lloyd Daniels, Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton, Sam Retford (Ackley Bridge) and Kim Tatum (Dead and Breathing), Sophie Anne-Ellicott and Georgia Conlan.

The piece has lyrics and book by Lloyd Eyre-Morgan and Neil Ely, with music by Ashley M A Walsh and choreography by William Whelton (Yank!, Pippin).

Closets runs at the Hope Mill Theatre from 14 to 23 August.
