Based on the true story of a WWI hero, new musical The Dreamers makes its London debut at the St. James Theatre this summer.
As Captain Salomons prepares his men for battle, one soldier grows jealous of his popularity and position, and unsettled by what lies ahead tries to stir trouble amongst the men. A 12-year-old boy is desperate to join ‘the great adventure’. Women take on the jobs of men. The War Cabinet is faced with impossible decisions.
This emotional tale of courage and sacrifice looks at the outbreak of war through the eyes of the soldiers and the families they left behind, and remembers a lost generation whose dreams were swept away.
The show is performed by six-piece band Virgin Soldiers and a cast of 22 young men and women. The story of the Great War is brought to life by on-screen narration from special guests Amanda Redman, Tim Rice, Philip Glenister and others.
This emotional tale of courage and heroism brought audiences of all ages to their feet and moved many to tears when it premiered at the Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells, in 2014.
