BWW Exclusive Premiere: Official Poster for FINDING NEVERLAND the Musical Starring Julian Ovenden & Rosalie Craig!

As previously reported, Julian Ovenden and Rosalie Craig will star in a new musical version of the film Finding Neverland, which starred Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet. The musical will feature Ovenden as Barrie, a role he played in two London workshops last winter, and Craig as Sylvia. The show began rehearsals July 30 and performances at the Curve Theatre in Leicester will begin on September 21 and will run through October 18, 2012.

BroadwayWorld brings you an exclusive first look at the poster art for the new show below!

Director Ashford is currently represented on Broadway with the revival of Evita and has been helping with the writing of Finding Neverland's book. The show features a book by Allan Knee, and music and lyrics by Scott Frankel and Michael Korie.

Also starring are Liz Robertson as Sylvia's mother, along with Clare Foster, Oliver Boot, Stuart Neal, Vince Leigh and Norman Bowan.

In Finding Neverland, the pressure is on for Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie - his last play was an abysmal failure and his career is threatened by crippling writers block. With his deadline fast approaching and an impertinent producer hounding him, a chance meeting in a London park with a woman and her spirited young boys provides just the inspiration he needs. Based on the 2004 Academy Award-nominated film - which in turn was adapted from librettist Allan Knee's play, The Man Who Was Peter Pan - this world premiere musical tells the enchanting story of the real boys who inspired a literary masterpiece.
