Perfectly Ordinary, a new musical about Mental Health Awareness comes to the Hope Mill Theatre this July.
The cast features Natalie Williams (Maggie May- Finborough Theatre, Promises Promises- Southwark Playhouse, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- West End) as Pinky, Peter Noden (Honk- UK Tour, Twang!- Union Theatre) as James, Pippa Winslow (The Exonerated- Hope Mill, Sound of Music- UK Tour, Oklahoma!- Grange Park Opera) as Eileen, Paul Dorsey (Luminosity- HOME, Manchester) as George and Kelly Hampson (Ghost- UK Tour, Legally Blonde- Leicester Curve/Monaco, Knights of the Rose- Arts Theatre) as Suzie. Alfie Doohan (ArtsEd) and Kate Landy (GSA) will be making their professional debuts as Noah and The Girl, respectively.
On a psychiatric ward somewhere in the UK, we meet a range of unique, sometimes tragic, sometimes hilarious characters all striving to be ‘normal’. Based on real life events and inspired by real people, this show is a touching exploration of the human condition.
Composer Joe Wilson said; “To have this show performed at such an incredible venue with this wonderful cast is truly a dream come true. We hope it will help to spread mental health awareness and break down the stigma one audience member at a time!”
Perfectly Ordinary is co-directed by Matthew Rankcom and Samantha Dye, with musical direction by Jordan Alexander, choreography by Lizzie Nance, casting by Adam Braham, set design by Frankie Gerrard and lighting by Joseph Edward Thomas.
Perfectly Ordinary is at Hope Mill Theatre 22nd – 24th July 2019.
