Happy Days Tour & Barnum Featured on Episode 2 The Sound of Musicals

The first episode of the Sound of Musicals aired last night on Channel 4 and mostly featured director Sam Mendes and his team's lead up to the opening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Next Tuesday 19th November at 9:00 pm episode 2 will cover Cameron Mackintosh's staging of the circus musical Barnum in the special tent he had erected at Chichester and producer Amy Anzel who is trying to raise funds and cast her fledgling production Happy Days: A New Musical which starts an extensive UK tour in January next year.

It also features 21 year old Dickie Wood who is straight out of stage school and landed his first job in Mamma Mia!  He has a lot to learn in just five weeks before his West End debut.

With time, money and reputation at stake, Cameron, Amy and Dickie have their work cut out. And in the West End the drama's not just on the stage!
