A St Albans singer and songwriter is staging a new musical in Abbots Langley this autumn.
Alex Scott, who together with Ed Coan has spearheaded the Live & Local events at the Henderson Hub in the village, is preparing to wow Abbots residents with his original musical, Crossing The Line.
The show is based on the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and in particular, the period leading up to the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, which brought an end to decades of violence.
Irish-born Alex grew up in Belfast during the Troubles, and his musical reflects his experiences of living through that difficult period.
With 2023 marking the 25th anniversary of the peace agreement, Alex thought that this would be a perfect time to stage his musical.
He said: “No show would be complete without a happy ending and Crossing The Line shows how good will triumph over adversity. It is a positive message for these troubled times.”
The musical is scheduled to be performed at the Henderson Hub in the autumn, and will be directed by the outgoing manager David Barron, who has a host of credits to his name.
An album of the musical has been recorded at rehearsals and will be available on streaming platforms from March 17. Those interested can also contact Alex at www.alexscottmusic.co.uk and copies of the CD will be available for purchase at the St Patrick’s Day Live & Local show at the Henderson Hub on March 17.
Alex added: “We are looking for adult actors and singers to perform in the show. If this is of interest, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
