Loserville the Musical revived at the Union Theatre
The Union Theatre in Southwark, south London, have announced that they will revive the 2012 flop musical Loserville which features book, music and lyrics by Elliot Davis and James Bourne, running from 25 February to 21 March 2015, with an official opening on 27 February 2015.
Directed by Michael Burgen, it will be produced by Sasha Regan, with musical direction by Bryan Hodgson and choreography by Matt Krzan.
The cast will include Lewis Bradley who starred on BBC's talent search 'Any Dream Will Do' as 'Eddie'. He will be joined by Luke Newton (Michael Dork), Holly-Anne Hull (Holly Manson), Sarah Covey (Leia Dawkins), Jordan Fox (Lucas Lloyd), Sandy Grigelis (Marvin Camden), Matthew Harvey (Francis Wier), Ryan Ridley (Wayne Pagoda), Charlie Kendall (Huey Phillips), Isobel Hathaway (Samantha Powden), Jennifer Jolly Jamieson (Elaine Friend) and an ensemble that includes: Daniel Parrott, Ben Rawlings, Morgan Scott, James-Lee Harris, Amy Thiroff, Chloe Lindsay, Delycia Belgrave and Miracle Chance.
"It's 1971. Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he's invented something that could change the world. He's also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary. Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space - well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Michael and his sci-fi obsessed, social-misfit friends, Lucas, Francis and Marvin are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating - in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit."
Loserville began life at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, before transferring to the West End's Garrick Theatre where it ran from 17 October 2012 to 05 January 2013. The musical received poor notices from critics but proved popular with teenage audiences.
