Rehab the musical opens in London this September 2022



Rehab the musical opens at the Playground Theatre, London from Thursday 1st September to Saturday 17th September 2022.

Rehab sweeps you up on an emotional journey of the soaring highs and tragic lows of the ‘guests’ of the Glade Rehab Centre…

It’s 1999 and jaded 26 year-old pop star, Kid Pop, finds himself in court, after being caught red handed in a drug fuelled tabloid sting. An understanding judge gives Kid the choice between jail time or a rehabilitation centre for six weeks. It’s a no-brainer for Kid: rehab will be a holiday. But how could he have got it so wrong?

Cast: Keith Allen (The Homecoming), Jonny Labey (Strictly Ballroom), Gloria Onitiri (Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella), John Barr (Les Misérables), Jodie Steele (Heathers) and TV presenter Annabel Giles (My Shirley Valentine Summer). Andy Brady, Dawn Buckland, Marion Campbell, Andrew Patrick-Walker and Phil Sealey complete the cast.

Lyrics by Anthony Drewe
Based on the novel ‘Becoming Nancy’ by Terry Ronald
Directed by Jerry Mitchell

In September 2019 Becoming Nancy had it’s World Premiere on the newly renovated Coca-Cola Stage at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, USA.

Becoming Nancy is the huge-hearted new musical that weaves a story of family bonds, first loves, and the courage it takes to find your own spotlight.

Based on a novel by Terry Ronald, Becoming Nancy, set in 1979, in the South London suburb of East Dulwich, tells the story of a talented high school pupil David Starr who gets the surprise of his life when he’s cast in the role of Nancy (the female lead!) in his school production of Oliver!

How David, his classmates, his family, and his community react to the news is a heartwarming story.

Rehab (The Musical)

The judge has spoken – ‘Rehab or prison?’ But for the puffed up and ‘partied out’ pop prince in the dock it’s all too much.

Yet Kid pop, the world’s biggest pop ego, has no choice. However, his manager Malcolm Gladwell can smell a killing and needs cameras and action, on the inside – PDQ

Welcome to The Glade: Cross dressing room mates, tanning addicts, group therapy and terrible food. It’s all too much! Kid needs a fix. Meet Lucy, she’s gorgeous, sensitive. It’s lust at first sight but Lucy has a dark secret, one that will plunge them both into a life-threatening dilemma.

Join us in Rehab on a poptastic, rock bottom to redemption journey of heart, hips, boom-boom belly laughs and lightning quips. Hearts must be broken and songs must be sung; from a stunning score, that will live on in the heart and mind as we and our deeply loveable cast of characters seek the ultimate goal: love, peace, serenity and great choreography.
