Halls The Musical tickets London on sale soon!
Writers George Stroud and Jennifer Harrison have teamed up to create a brand-new musical set to debut in London in 2021. Halls The Musical is set to star at least two real-life graduates in order to provide emerging talents with a platform to jumpstart their careers. To launch the new project, the production released a video of major West End stars and a new Guilford School of Acting graduate perform the show's opening number "Flat 15B."
What is Halls The Musical about?
Halls centres on a diverse group of eight, first-year uni students from different cultural backgrounds and upbringings who are brought together when they find out they've been allocated the same exact flat in Halls of Residence: Flat 15B. Over the course of the show, audiences can look forward to some rich character development as they witness these eight lovable students blossom and develop over their academic school year.
The new Halls musical also takes on many themes typical to life at university, including the cost of student living, love and romance, freshers week, flat arguments, cramming the night before an exam, and self-acceptance. Now forced to own up to the decisions they make, will these characters manage to find their footing in the world with the greatest of ease? Or will there be lots of trial and error?
Featuring upbeat, feel-good vibes that evoke feelings of nostalgia for our uni days, Halls is set against the backdrop of a catchy, contemporary, pop-rock soundtrack.
