Casting has been confirmed for the new British musical inspired by the opening of the Cereal Killer Café in East London and the Shoreditch riots of 2015.
Making its world premiere at The Other Palace from the 28th February, casting for the new British musical has been confirmed.
The cast for the production is set to include: Norma Atallah (Follies), Fanta Barrie (Songlines), Thomas Grant (The Dreamers), Rosalind James (Bat Out of Hell), Julie Legrand (An American In Paris), Harveen Mann (Bend It Like Beckham); Minal Patel (Aspects of Love), Keith Ramsay (The Keith Kat Klub), Howard Samuels (The Glenn Miller Story) and Tosh Wanogho-Maud (Dreamgirls).
An extraordinary café is opening on the vibrant streets of East London. Based on the childhood fantasies of two young brothers, its presence will result in unimaginable consequences. In a threatened neighbourhood, fighting to survive, something so simple as cereal will divide the community.
The show’s creator Jacob Dorrell said: “The Cereal Café is a story set in a neighbourhood experiencing rapid re-development, so it addresses issues affecting many inner city areas around the UK. It’s a real collision of light and dark, where subjects so far apart all somehow come together. This is reflected in the show’s sound-world, mixing musical theatre, pop, rock and cinema.”
The Cereal Cafe features book and lyrics by Jacob Dorrell and Tom Ling, music by Adam Dickinson, orchestrations by Alistair Robertson and Jack Blume, direction by Victoria Gimby, sound design by Max Hunter and lighting design by Michael Fox.
The Cereal Cafe will play at The Other Palace from the 28th February until the 2nd March.
