West End stars Sabrina Aloueche, Hannah Jane Fox, Scott Garnham and Lauren Samuels will be performing songs from the new musical The In-Between, with sets at 3pm Saturday 23rd June and 4.40pm Sunday 24th June. Scott Garnham and Lauren Samuels will be performing on the Saturday, with Sabrina Aloueche and Hannah Jane Fox joining Samuels for the Sunday set.
A quirky tale of love, friendship and letting go, The In-Between is a fantasy musical telling the story of nineteen-year-old misfit Flick Wimple, a perpetual underachiever who stumbles through the wrong doorway and finds herself trapped in between parallel worlds. Desperately searching for a way home, Flick must overcome new challenges as she finds help in unexpected places and is forced to confront her troubled past…
Initially released as an online concept album in mid February, The In-Between has since received over 40,000 views on YouTube, despite having no commercial backing. Aloueche and Samuels both appear on the album, in a cast which also includes Julie Atherton, Daniel Boys, Cassandra Compton, Hadley Fraser, Alexia Khadime, Dianne Pilkington and Liam Tamne.
A CD version is being released for the first time by Dress Circle, also on Saturday 23 June, with an in-store signing from 11am to 12 noon attended by Daniel Boys, Dianne Pilkington and Lauren Samuels.
The In-Between has music, lyrics and book by Laura Tisdall, whose previous credits include Bill Kenwright’s UK tour of The Haunting and Kerry Ellis and Brian May’s Anthems: The Concert.
