Once the Musical

ONCE the Musical' to be brought to life in the Midlands - reimagined in a brand new production by Let Me In.

The award winning musical will make it's regional debut with a focus on accessibility - featuring a range of Pay What You Can and relaxed performances.

A struggling Dublin busker has a chance conversation with a Czech girl with a broken hoover.
They play music together.
The rest is history.

Exciting new Midlands theatre company, Let Me In, are reimagining the award-winning folk musical - ONCE - for today's audience, with an immersive new design and visionary creative team.

ONCE is being staged at the new, intimate theatre space - The Hub - in Lichfield - over August and September. It will have a strong focus on accessibility, with a range of Pay What You Can performances available, as well as various relaxed performances over the four week run.

Based on the Academy Award Winning 2006 film, and the winner of eight Tony Awards, ONCE tells the unforgettable story of two disenfranchised artists, drawn together by their shared love of music.
The production features the Oscar winning hit, Falling Slowly and the beautiful music of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, with a book by Enda Walsh.

The cast will include singer-songwriters Luchi and Phil King as Girl and Guy respectively, alongside an ensemble cast of actor musicians from around the globe.

The production will be directed by Christopher Buckle (Spring Awakening), with a brand new design from Imogen Melhuish (Constellations). Completing the team are Musical Director, Ewan Steady and Movement Director, Hatty Allen.

Director, Christopher Buckle, said We are so blessed to have the opportunity to bring this beautifully human story to the Midlands in this brand new, regional debut. To be working with a cast and creative team with this level of talent, creativity and passion is exhilarating, and we promise that this will be ONCE as you have never seen it before!
