The musical written by Phil Willmott takes an irreverent look at the Adelphi Hotel in the 1930s.  It offers the glitz and glamour of Hollywood as wealthy Americans sail into Liverpool Docks in luxury liners for their first taste of England.

Meanwhile the receptionist Alice has fallen for the charming Thompson from accounts, but fate, Hollywood, two wars and the staff and guests all play a part in this love story which spans 60 years.

Once Upon at Time at the Adelphi has an original score original and it won Best Musical Production in the 2008 TMA Awards, and was nominated for Best Regional Production in last year’s Awards.
The cast for Adelphi are Marc Antolin, Emily Barlow, Emma Barr, Jamie Birkett, Benjamin Bond, Lucyelle Cliffe, Nicholas Collier, Paddy Crawley, Joanna Goodwin, Jon-Paul Hevey, Ally Holmes, Rebecca Hutchinson, Rudi Last, Lucinda Lawrence, Matt Markwick, Jodie Michaels, Matthew Naegeli, Lindsay Scigliano and Will Stokes.

It will be directed by Phill Willmott and designed by Charlie Cridlan, with musical supervision by Elliot Davis, choreography by Andrew Wright, musical direction by Michael Bradley and costumes by Geraldine Spencer.
