The British musical by Elliot Davis and James Bourne, received its London premiere at the Garrick Theatre over 5 years ago in 2012, following a successful run at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. In 2013 it was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Musical. Since then it has received several off West End productions and numerous amateur and college productions in the UK and the US.

Loserville was originally commissioned by Youth Music Theatre UK in 2009 and performed by a cast drawn from its UK National Auditions at the South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell in August 2009. The original amateur production was directed by Steven Dexter, choreographed by Nick Winston and musically supervised by Martin Lowe. The rights were subsequently assigned to a commercial producing team and it opened at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in May 2012 before transferring to the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End.

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.
