Betwixt Musical Booking Extended at Trafalgar Studios

Betwixt! is a comedy musical written and directed by Ian McFarlane which is playing at the Trafalgar Studios from Tuesday 26th July to Saturday 20th August. (Now extended 3 weeks to September 10th).

It is set in modern day New York,  with writer Bailey (suffering writer's block) and flamboyant roommate Cooper Fitzgerald being  catapulted headfirst into a strange enchanted world.

Their arrival fulfils a prophecy that tells of a brave hero and a great queen and they are tasked with searching out a fading daytime TV star who is the only hope for saving a pregnant princess from losing the throne...

Sex-crazed nymphs, hunchbacks, cross-dressing mutes, dancing reporters, enchantresses (of the evil-world-dominating variety) and a disembodied head with a Bavarian accent are teamed with sitcom-styled dialogue and a toe-tapping score in a truly funny musical comedy.

Ellen Greene (the original Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors) is playing three roles as the identical triplets - The Enchantress, Princess, Nymph Queen until 20th August.  Lizzie Roper will then take on the role for the extension of the run until September with  Steven Webb (Cooper) , Ashleigh Gray (Miranda) and newcomer Benedict Salter playing Bailey.

Olivier nominee and ex-Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan also takes on three roles in the show playing The Great Garbo, Prince Haydn and Haydn Prince.
