New Stars Aplenty

25 October 2019


The past two weeks has been dominated by announcements and new projects, as well as adding star power both onstage and in the office!

From Mysterious Girl and the jungle to P.Y.T and the West End, Peter Andre has been announced as the first star in a series of featured celebrities to be joining the cast of Thriller Live! For just two weeks, Peter will be bringing his voice and moves to the iconic music of Michael Jackson.

From an industry legend to rising stars, the search for twin girls for the new musical, Identical, continues. This weekend we will be looking high and low in Nottingham for the pair that will be the heart of this new show!

We say goodbye to the 5-star Mother of Him this weekend, as it has its final performance at Park Theatre on Saturday. It’s been amazing working on such a moving show with old friends Oliver Mackwood Productions and, of course, Park Theatre.

As one show closes, next week a number open! National Youth Theatre started their season this week with a diverse, engaging and haunting take on a Dickens’ favourite, Great Expectations. Up next week is the futuristic and ground-breaking Frankenstein, which brings 21st century technology to the Victorian classic. 4.48 Psychosis opens at the New Diorama Theatre; a challenging, evocative play that is being brought back after its sold-out success by Deafinitely Theatre!

From shows that have been breaking barriers to the collective that keep reaching new heights, next week there will be an industry premiere of The Goes Wrong Show from Mischief Theatre. An exciting opportunity for the Mischief team to showcase one of their many current projects!

It’s been another busy fortnight within the office! The Original Talent Choir is still rehearsing as their concert creeps closer, and the netball team are still the stars of the mixed league! JHI also had a team representing the company at SOBOM’s quiz evening at The Theatre CafĂ©! After a disappointing first half, the team pulled it back and finished a respectable 6th out of 12. We also have some new names and faces joining us in the office as the team continues to expand! A big welcome to Ray, Leni and Rhys. Leni and Rhys will be lending their star power to the Digital and Social Media team, while Ray will be shining within the Campaigns side. Exciting times ahead!!
