‘Treason the Musical’ concert casting announced
The concerts will be performed at Cadogan Hall to be streamed next month.
Following the news that concert performances of Treason the Musical will take place at Cadogan Hall, casting has been announced. A cast of ten will star in the concerts, available to stream from 12 - 14 March.
Based on Guy Fawkes’ foiled gunpowder plot of 1605, the new British musical will explore events leading up to the well-known anticlimatic ending.
Casting includes Lucie Jones as Martha Percy, who recently starred as Jenna in Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre. & Juliet’s Oliver Tompsett plays Robert Catesby, with Daniel Boys as King James, Hamilton's Waylon Jacobs as John Wright and Emmanuel Kojo as Thomas Wintour.
Rebecca LaChance plays Anne Vaux, with Cedric Neal as the Earl of Northumberland, Sharon Rose as Eleanor Brooksby and Les Miserables' Bradley Jaden as Thomas Percy. Debris Stevenson will narrate the production.
Treason the Musical features an original book by Kieran Lynn and Ricky Allan, with Allan also writing the music and lyrics. The upcoming concert performances are being staged ahead of a full musical production to be announced later this year.
