The musical based on the television series will have a workshop performance in London later this week.
Casting has been announced for the upcoming workshop performance of new musical Footballers’ Wives which will take place in London on the 22nd November.

Wendi Peters (Nurse Dunkley) and Dean John Wilson (Salvo).
Based on the television series, Footballers’ Wives the musical will feature a book by Maureen Chadwick, co-creator of the original TV series, 23 brand new songs with music and lyrics by Kath Gotts.
The new musical is based around the first series of the hit tv show, following the rise and fall of Tanya Turner – captain’s wife and old school femme fatale – as she struggles to keep her marriage afloat to footballer and lothario, Jason Turner, amidst groupies, meddling club chairmen, deception, betrayal and murder.
It’s 2002. Premier League Football is the new Rock ‘n’ Roll, and Earls Park FC wives are living it to the max. These WAGs have the designer gear, the palatial homes, the flash cars and the handsome superstar husbands – and the press pack on their kitten heels at every turn.
This workshop performance of Footballer’s Wives the Musical will feature musical direction by Gemma Hawkins with Tom Kelly as music associate and is produced by Big Broad Productions.
