Set in a West End theatre hosting the jukebox musical, Oops! I Did It Again,The Britney Spears Musical, USHERS: The Front of House Musical follows the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff selling programmes, ice creams and tearing tickets.

Over one working shift, It portrays the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of these youngsters who dare to dream… including a three-year workplace romance that is on the rocks, an untrained newbie working her first shift and the amorous manager who is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?

USHERS: The Front of House Musical has big, bold company numbers, Fosse-like ice cream tray choreography and a script with heart, soul and an ice-bucket full of laughs.

Cast: Ben Fenner, Rory Maguire, Alexandra Parkes, Corrine Priest, Cameron Sharp, Harry Stone.
