It’s the age old tale of an Irish girl coming to Liverpool who never leaves.
We know the city is famous for its Irish population.
In October, Bob Eaton’s brand new musical Maggie May comes to the Court for the first time. Find out what happens when a young Maggie gets more than she bargained for in a city that was only meant to be a stopover.
It’s featuring great live music from a very talented cast. Find out who they are below.
Tom Connor: This isn’t Tom’s first rodeo on the Royal Court stage. He was part of Liverpool’s fab four back in 2014 playing Paul McCartney in Lennon and was Flounder in the Everyman and Playhouse’s Rock n Roll Panto.
Cheryl Fergison: Fans may recognise her from EastEnders where she played the lovable Heather Trott for five years. She’s making her Royal Court debut this October.
Michael Fletcher: A familiar face to Royal Court audiences. Michael has just finished performing in seventies smash hit Mam! I’m ‘Ere and is back singing for his supper in Maggie May.
Matt Ganley: Matt has been in all your soap favourites; Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Waterloo Road. He’s coming all the way from Manchester, but we won’t hold that against him.
Sam Haywood: This fresh-faced actor has had a number of roles in Liverpool. You can catch him roaming the streets of Toxteth in Hits Like A Girl.
David Heywood: You’ll find David acting on the big screen in Peterloo but don’t forget you saw him at the Royal Court first..
Barbara Hockaday: Barbara has just come back from her Summer Holiday at the Octagon Theatre Bolton. We hope she doesn’t have some post-holiday blues.
Paislie Reid: Royal Court audiences will recognise Paislie from much loved show Lost Soul. She just couldn’t keep away from us.
Christina Tedders: Our leading lady, the Maggie to our May. Christina sails here from Ireland but hopefully she won’t end up like Maggie.
Maggie May lands on Liverpool shores this October, from 12 October until 10 November 2018.
