The cast had 12 weeks to learn their lines independently before spending a gruelling 24 hours learning dances, singing together for the first time, and going through their stage directions for the whole show before taking to the stage to perform a challenging but magical one night only performance.

“When impoverished student Robbie becomes romantically involved with engaged Mayoral candidate James Prince, his lap-dancing step-sisters become the least of his problems!

The potent mix of politics, sex-scandals and true love come together in this contemporary musical with an infectious score that you’ll be humming long past the stroke of midnight!”
