The Other Palace officially opened its doors this month and now offers a home and breeding ground for musicals at various stages of development. The Other Palace focuses on four key areas: programming, creative use of spaces, musical theatre development and audience engagement.
The main theatre is the heart of The Other Palace, where the programme consists of full productions, work in progress productions and festivals of new work. By day, the studio is available for composers, librettists, lyricists, directors and choreographers to discover and create new material. By night, the space builds on the current St. James Studio model to offer a diverse programme including cabaret, music, musical theatre and crossover acts. The theatre also features an open mic bar in the hope that it becomes a genuine hub for anyone interested in music.
Opening on 2nd March and running to 18th March is ‘Murder for Two’, a hilarious high-energy musical whodunit. Two actors play thirteen characters… and the piano in this acclaimed new musical. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, Murder for Two is a hysterical blend of music, mayhem and murder.
