BRAND NEW MUSICAL FEATURING SONGS OF TIM
PROTTEY-‐JONES HITS TOWN
EDGY NEW BRIT ROCK SHOW STRIKES A NEW CHORD
Interval Productions are launching a brand new brit-‐rock musical featuring the songs of Tim Prottey-‐
Jones, and it’s about time. Tim’s albums, [More With Every Line and Surrounded by the Sounds], have
been musical theatre favourites for some time, but as of yet, a show containing them has never been
There are so many jukebox musicals out there at the moment – this show really fills a gap in the
market. Brand new pop-‐rock songs, a British cast and creative team, and an edgy theme. This show is
one for the ‘cool’ kids and is definitely parental guidance!
How many auditions have asked you for a ‘pop/rock’ song? And how many times have you had to
wheel out the same out-‐dated material? Here’s a show packed full of ‘actable’ audition songs!
The cast features two exceptionally experienced performers – Ashleigh Gray [Standby Elphaba,
Wicked] and Stevie Webb [History Boys, The National]. In addition, as per Interval Productions’ ethos,
After The Turn also features some ‘undiscovered’ talent in the form of Greg Oliver and Steven Rolley,
both still training at Italia Conti. Liam Doyle [The winner of GMTV’s search for a Troy, Hairspray-‐UK
tour] and Interval’s founder member Tori Allen-‐Martin [Hair, European and forthcoming UK tour]

Complimenting Tim Prottey-‐Jones’s music is a new book written by Sarah Henley, who is also
directing. Sarah has had success with two plays, ‘Getting On’ and ‘Getting Away’ and most recently
collaborated on the writing team for ZIP, a streetdance musical choreographed by Gary Lloyd. She
hopes to make the acting an integral part of this show.
The show is Musically Directed by Tom Curran – Tom is currently studying at Guildhall School of Music
& Drama. In 2008 he was one of the BBC Proms Young Composers Competition winners and was
subsequently commissioned to write music for the 2009 Proms. Tom was recently Musical Director
for ‘FRESHER The Musical’ [2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival], and is currently Assistant MD for ‘The
Producers’ [Arts Ed].
Interval productions was established in 2009 to give a voice to the incredibly talented people
who were stuck ‘in between’ – in between drama school and their first big break, in between
paid jobs, or even those who needed a showcase because they were in between agents. This
ethos is especially important in today’s industry, where an untrained person from big
brother is more likely to get a part than a supremely talented graduate. Interval’s aim with
After the Turn is for people to come to the show to see one of their West End favourites,
and leave the show with another favourite, previously unknown to them. These people are
the future of musical theatre.
