Final casting has been confirmed for the world premiere of the new British musical, playing at the Southwark Playhouse from the 3rd July.
It has been announced that joining the previously announced Dan Buckley (Ferris, Eugenius!) and Hiba Elchikhe (Princess Jasmine, Disney’s Aladdin) in this world premiere production will be Luke Bayer (Jamie New in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Aoife Clesham (Peter Pan international tour) and Alex James Ellison (The Secret Garden).
Fiver follows the story of a humble five pound note as it passes through the hands and pockets of people in London. Often unnoticed and obviously unaware, the fiver is present for significant moments in each person’s life – whether it be an appreciation of their skills as a street performer; the start or end of a relationship; or the simple realisation that they can afford a bed for the night.
Featuring a book, music and lyrics by Alex James Ellison and Tom Lees, Fiver explores the value of money, relationships between people and in turn their relationship with money.
This production is directed by Alex James Ellison and Tom Lees, with musical direction by Tom Lees, lighting design by Alex Musgrave and set design by Justin Williams.
Fiver will play at the Southwark Playhouse from the 3rd to the 20th July.
