Described as “emotionally magnificent” by Stiles and Drewe, The Circle is a brand new British musical written by Rachel Walker Mason (music and lyrics) and Eloise Hodder (book), which will receive a workshop performance in Somerset on 5 July.

This ingenious musical workshop features a West End cast including Courtney Stapleton (Beauty and the Beast, Six, Dear Evan Hansen), Linda Jarvis (Aspects of Love, Les Miserables), Madlena Nedeva (Cabaret), Michael Thomas (Tina, Motown, Avenue Q), Clare Aster (Jerry Springer The Opera), Kate Lankester (Rent), Evie Rose Lane (Footloose, But I’m a Cheerleader, Sunset Boulevard), Bethzienna Williams (The Assassination of Katie Hopkins, The Voice UK), Clare Cordell (Rent, The Voice UK), Dominique Skinner (Ainadamar), Felix Dickerson (Romeo and Juliet), and Abigail Green (MD for The Lightning Thief, Pippin).

The Circle was chosen by Les Miserables and Miss Saigon writer Claude Michel Schonberg for his New Musicals Masterclass 2024 where he described Rachel’s lyrics and melodies as “very memorable.”

The song ‘Drown Without Water’ from The Circle won the Best New Song Prize 2023 and has been praised by internationally renowned Songwriting Magazine saying “the memorable melody and powerful message live with you long after the curtain has closed.”
