NEWS: In the Wings to Return for a Second Series

The first series took place through out June and July, with now six new episodes confirmed to be shown later this Summer.

Featuring a blend of performances and conversation, filmed in a theatre, In the Wings highlights six new musicals which have been postponed due to Covid-19.

Each episode focuses on a different musical, offering a chance for composers, writers and creatives of shows to provide a platform to showcase their work.

The first series was watched by 40K viewers and was the first live performances to take place in a theatre since lockdown began in March.

Series two will also be recorded live, this time in a West End theatre. As well as a live band, each episode will feature performances from a line-up of West End stars, a host of 2020 musical theatre graduates and interviews with creatives.

The programme line-up features: Millennials (Elliot Clay); Plan Bea (by Suzy Davies, Verity Quade, Jessie Reeves, Rosie McElroy, and Deborah Gersohn); The Rise (by Graham Lappin); Terror at the Sweet Shop (by Gavin Brock and Nichola Rivers); The Wicker Husband (by Darren Clark and Rhys Jennings), and You and I (by Cordelia O’Driscoll and Tom Williams).

Once again, each episode (free to watch) has been filmed in strict accordance with social distancing guidelines. Casting and broadcasting schedule has yet to be announced.

Viewers will be able to watch the second series via In the Wings Youtube channel.
