News: Brand new musical premiere Ordinary People announced

New UK Musicals and Parkwood Theatres announce a world premiere of new British musical Ordinary People, based on real life stories from the people of Kent.

Supported by funding from the Farnham Maltings Our Town Project, Ordinary People is a truly unique musical experience that takes on real stories from the lives of people from Maidstone, Kent. At its heart, the show explores the idea that there is nothing ordinary about ordinary people.

Ordinary People is written by multi-award winning composer and lyricist Darren Clark (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Wicked Husband) and directed by Jenny Longley. It is set to premiere at the Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone, in summer 2021. Performances will be in-person from 29 to 31 July.

The people of Maidstone and its surrounding area will be given the opportunity to share their stories by applying through the show’s website.
