News: World premiere of new musical The Osmonds to tour UK and Ireland

The world premiere of The Osmonds: A New Musical is set to open at Leicester’s Curve in February 2022, before embarking on a UK and Ireland tour.

With a story by Jay Osmond, the musical tells the true story of five brothers from Utah who were pushed into the spotlight as children and went on to create smash hits, decade after decade.

From their star residency on The Andy Williams Show from 1962 to 1969, to pop stars and “Osmondmania” from 1971 to 1975, as well as the arrival of The Donny & Marie Show from 1976 to 1979, The Osmonds lived a remarkable life recording chart-topping albums, selling out arena concerts and making record-breaking TV shows… Until one bad decision cost them everything.

The Osmonds: A New Musical will feature a list of 1970s anthems, including “One Bad Apple”, “Down by the Lazy River”, “Crazy Horses”, “Let Me In”, “Love Me for a Reason”, “(We’re) Having a Party”, “Puppy Love”, “Long Haired Lover from Liverpool”, “Paper Roses” and many more.

The Osmonds have sold over 100 million records worldwide and won 59 Gold and Platinum awards. Now, Jay Osmond pulls back the curtain to reveal the real family behind all these hits.

The musical features a story by Jay Osmond, book by Julian Bigg and Shaun Kerrison, and will be directed by Kerrison, with choreography and musical staging by Bill Deamer.
