EDINBURGH 2016: Pick Of The Programme - Musicals

EDINBURGH 2016: Pick Of The Programme - Musicals

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has launched its 2016 in full. After several hours of browsing the brochure I have compiled a list of my must-see musicals this year!


I'm always keen to see what Royal Conservatoire are doing at the Fringe and I was thrilled to see that they're taking on 9-5 the musical this year. RCS productions are exceptionally high standard and I am very confident that this will be fantastic!

Ushers: The Front Of House Musical

Ushers was one of my highlights of last year and has since gone on to do an Off-West End run. This musical staged by DULOG will surely please everybody but will especially delight anybody who spends a lot of time in a theatre.

The Miserables

The Miserables looks like an interesting new show. A parody of Les Miserables, set to the backdrop of working in awful office jobs, if done well this could be excellent!


Eurobeat already has a bit of buzz surrounding it. Featuring Steps member Lee Latchford Evans and promising a sequin-soaked celebration of the international phenomenon Eurovision Song Contest, it looks like a very exciting production!

Techies: The Musical

A new musical celebrating the true heroes of theatre - the techies. Two weeks before the opening of the new stage sensation South Atlantic: The Underwater Musical Experience and things aren't quite going as smoothly as planned. Entrusted to a team of rag-tag techies and a director on the verge of an existential crisis, Techies: The Musical gives you a backstage pass to witness the tech challenge of a lifetime.

The Freckles Effect

Set in 1930s South Devon, Freckles is a hard-to-place foster child who challenges deep-rooted sensibilities. A new musical boasting previous leads from Matilda, this is not one to be missed!

Paper Hearts

World premiere of uplifting new British musical set in a high street bookshop. Aspiring writer Atticus Smith lives avidly through his novel's characters until the arrival of the spirited Lilly Sprocket. With a contemporary pop-folk score performed by a company of actor-musicians, Paper Hearts is about passion and finding your place in the world, among books!
