A musical with a difference that took Edinburgh Fringe by storm last summer has been snapped up by Greenwich Theatre boss James Haddrell and will play three dates in south east London between 10 and 14 May.

But Weekend Rockstars – which beat hundreds of shows to the Musical Theatre Network Development Award in Edinburgh - won’t be staged at the theatre in Crooms Hill.

“Because the show is so much like a gig we decided that Greenwich Theatre might not be the right space for it,” said James, the theatre’s Artistic and Executive director. “We wanted somewhere a bit more intimate, so it will be performed at the Amersham Arms in New Cross on Tuesday 10 May, and at The Tramshed in Woolwich on 13 and 14 May.

“The Amersham is a long-established live music venue and The Tramshed has a long history of all kinds of performance from live music to stand-up comedy.”
