Shows for the 2008-2009 season#1

So what shows besides Gone With the Wind and Oliver are opening in the UK during the 2008-2009 season. The reason I am asking is because I am coming to London to study abroad in the fall.

I have a friend who has a final callback for Spring Awakening prior to rehearsals in May, so that is on the Almost Confirmed List. I don't think some of the others are already so far advanced with Casting etc.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

Yeah, I heard about it through a friend who auditioned. I was under the impression it was pretty much certain.
