Casting announced for ‘The Band Plays On’ – New Sheffield Theatres Show to be Streamed Online
An Olympic hopeful. A political car crash. The fallout from a fictional nuclear winter. Join Sheffield Theatres live for stories of solidarity and survival from the Steel City, soundtracked by new versions of classics from some of Sheffield’s most celebrated artists.
From writer Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge), The Band Plays On is a rousing night of extraordinary tales and live music. The performance will be filmed at the Crucible Theatre and made available to watch online from Monday 15 to Sunday 28 March 2021.
Anna-Jane Casey returns to the Crucible after leading the 2016 Christmas production Annie Get Your Gun. Maimuna Memon returns following Standing at the Sky’s Edge and Sandra Marvin follows her role in Showboat at the Crucible and the West End transfer. Both Jocasta Almgill (& Juliet, West Side Story, Dreamgirls)¬¬ and Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, One Man, Two Guvnors and Shirley Valentine) make their Crucible Theatre debuts.
Tickets to watch the show online are available from Wednesday 24 February at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
