British musical Ushers: The Front of House Musical will return for a run at London's The Other Palace. The show will open on 10 April.

The musical, written by Yiannis Koutsakos (music & lyrics), James Oban (lyrics), and James Rottger (book), is set in a West End theatre and follows a working shift in the lives of the front-of-house staff.

Directed by Max Reynolds, the show opened at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 after a run in 2014 at the Charing Cross Theatre. It transferred to the Arts Theatre in the West End in October 2015.

Producer James Steel said: “A decade has passed since our opening of our original cult British musical, and we're excited to reintroduce the vibrant energy of our industry to a brand new audience. Working on this show brings immense joy, and we're proud to maintain our commitment to Equity's "Professionally Made, Professionally Paid" campaign, upholding the standards set at the inception of the show at the Hope Theatre over a decade ago.”

Ushers: The Front of House Musical will run at The Other Palace (Studio) from 10 April to 19 May.

Cast is to be announced.
