What’s On Stage
‘Morgan Large’s design is nothing less than a masterpiece’
‘Louise Dearman [is] possessed of one of the richest, most powerful voices in contemporary British musical theatre’
‘one of the most unique and beautiful pieces of theatre I have seen in many years.’
Curve is delighted to be chosen as the venue for the world premiere of this major new musical.
Tom, our orphaned teenage hero, is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. In a desperate attempt to escape capture he is trapped on the edge of a waterfall. His only choice is to jump. Awakening in the depths of the ocean he encounters a whole new world of enchantment, danger and adventure.
Desperate to get back to the girl he loves Tom must brave underwater challenges in a world beyond his wildest imagination. Together with the unlikeliest of friends he embarks on a quest to find a way back to land. However he soon finds it’s not just his fate he holds in his hands, but also that of the mysterious and elusive gang of Water Babies.
It’s time for Tom to face his worst fears…it’s time to believe that anything is possible.
Inspired by Charles Kingsley’s much-loved novel, this spellbinding new production uses some of the most sophisticated special effects ever seen on stage and stars West End leading ladies Louise Dearman and Lauren Samuels, Waterloo Road’s Thomas Milner, and Tom Lister, best known for his role as Carl King in ITV’s Emmerdale.
