You Do It Entertainment LTD with Carter Dixon McGill Productions will present a workshop and industry presentation of Colin Ross Waterson (music and lyrics) and Ben Hartley (book) original new British musical, A SECOND CHANCE, at the Union Theatre in London on Friday, May 17 at 3:30pm & 7:30pm.

A SECOND CHANCE is a 90-minute, one-act new British musical about an aspiring singer who faces extraordinary circumstances on the road to fame. Set in the streets of Glasgow in the late 1990s and in London 20 years later, this is a story about family, struggle, sacrifice, fame, gender identity, self-acceptance, and love in all its crazy, wonderous forms.

This final workshop and industry presentation is made possible due to a massively successful Crowdfunder campaign surpassing their goal of £16K with over 130 supporters, including Alan Cumming, Matthew Bourne, Stephen Mear, and Kevin Mathurin.

The workshop cast includes Riley Carter (EastEnders BBC, Screw Channel 4), Alicia Corrales (SIX  the musical, Public), James Hastings (Cabaret, Sondheim’s Old Friends), Celia Graham (Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies), Daniel Crossley (Singing in the Rain, Hello Dolly), and Victoria Wilson-James (Oh What a Night!, The Wiz.)

Musical Director Audra Cramer (SIX - the musical)
