A Winter's Tale
A professional world premiere.
Music and lyrics by Howard Goodall
Book by Nick Stimson
Directed and developed by Andrew Keates

Arion Productions Ltd have announced that this November they will produce the professional world premiere of A Winter's Tale, a brand new British musical at the Landor Theatre, Clapham North.
A Winter's Tale is inspired by The Winter's Tale, although not a direct adaptation of one of Shakespeare's last and most experimental plays, it explores two very different lands that one day must conquer their differences through the universal themes of love, understanding and truth. This world premiere features a powerful and evocative new score and lyrics from Howard Goodall (Love Story, Girlfriends, The Hired Man), with a clever, deeply touching and often humorous book by Nick Stimson (NHS The Musical, Who Ate All The Pies, Korczak) developed and directed by award- winning director Andrew Keates (director of the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed production of The Hired Man last year and Passing By, The Thing About Men, Bent, Just So).

The show will tell this epic story in the intimate environment of the Landor Theatre, where for the past few years this small theatre has garnered a reputation for undertaking these challenges better than any other. Anyone will understand this chilly tale who has ever been jealous, fallen in love or simply wanted to undo a mistake. For the first time ever the story of The Winter's Tale will be told simply through musical theatre for a modern audience. Inspired by Britain's greatest writer and coupled with one of our greatest composers; It is almost certainly set to be the most eagerly anticipated piece of new British musical theatre in London this year.

The production team features distinguished creatives such as George Dyer as musical supervisor (Merrily We Roll Along, Annie, Ragtime), musical staging by Cressida Carre (The Hired Man, Burlesque, Spring Awakening), Martin Thomas as designer (Curtains, Ragtime, Guys and Dolls), multi award winning lighting designer Howard Hudson (Mack and Mabel, Parade, The Hired Man), Sarah Weltman as sound designer (The Hired Man, The Damnation of Faust, Idemoneo), and costume designer Philippa Batt (Passing By, Soho Cinders). Further cast and production team members will be announced shortly.

A Winter's Tale plays for only four weeks in London's Landor Theatre. Tickets are extremely limited for this strictly limited run. Pre-booking is strongly advised through the Landor Theatre's website Special student tickets, concessions and group bookings are available.
