This week, the cast and crew of The Season opened their rehearsal room doors to preview songs from the brand new musical. Seven days into their rehearsal process here in Northampton, stars Tori Allen-Martin and Alex Cardall delighted the audience with some of their work on the show so far, inlcuding songs New York and What’ll It Be, followed by a Q&A with director Tim Jackson.
The Season, by 2018 MTI Stiles + Drewe Mentorship Award winners, Jim Barne and Kit Buchan, previews right here in Northampton on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 November, ahead of a run at New Wolsley Theatre, Ipswich, before returning to the Royal stage from Tuesday 19 to Saturday 30 November.
It’s Christmas Eve and Dougal has travelled from Northampton to New York for his father’s wedding. At JFK Airport he’s greeted by Robin. Tomorrow her sister becomes his stepmother and Robin’s dreading it. Dougal can’t wait.
Thrown together for a wild weekend in the city that never sleeps, their adventure becomes a musical whirlwind of confession, frustration and excess. Will these two endearing misfits provide the ultimate test for the theory that opposites always attract?
