Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with I CAPTURE THE CASTLE at Watford Palace Theatre

Watford Palace Theatre proudly presents the world premiere musical I Capture the Castle, based on the iconic novel by Dodie Smith, and co-produced with the Octagon Theatre Bolton and Kevin Wallace Limited, in association with Deborah Ward. Brigid Larmour directs Suzanne Ahmet (Topaz), Kate Batter (Rose), Theo Boyce (Simon), Luke Dale (Neil), Lowri Izzard (Cassandra), Isaac Stanmore (Stephen), Julia St John (Mrs Cotton), Ben Watson (James) and Shona White (Leda).

Check out the cast in rehearsal below!

Set in the Bohemian England of the 1930s, Dodie Smith's worldwide bestselling classic is a warm and sharply funny coming-of-age story. The script by Teresa Howard (Grock (Chichester Festival Theatre) and Possessed (a new musical play with Steven Edis)) tells the story through the eyes of seventeen year old narrator Cassandra, opening with the famous line: 'I write this sitting in the kitchen sink..'

I Capture the Castle opens on Wednesday 5 April until Saturday 22 April, with previews from Friday 31 March. The production will go on general sales at Watford Palace Theatre from Wednesday 18 May.

I Capture the Castle is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
