This spring, The Turbine Theatre will host a reworked version of the cult musical, EUGENIUS!, which previously ran at The Other Palace in 2018 and in concert form at the London Palladium in 2016.
Elliott Evans (Kiln – A New Musical) will lead the cast as the unlikely hero, Eugene, with Jaina Brock-Patel (SIX The Musical) and James Hameed (Be More Chill) as his two best friends, Janey and Feris, respectively.
Completing the cast is Naomi Alade (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical) as Eugenie (Swing), Dominic Andersen (What’s New Pussycat?) as Gerhard/Tough Man/Dad, Joseph Beach (Ortistic Augasm) as Evil Lord Hector, Lara Denning (Matilda) as Lex, Louis Doran (Bugsy Malone) as Eugenie (Swing), Maddison Firth (Heathers The Musical)as Carrie/Super-Hot Lady, Sebastian Harwood (Treason The Musical In Concert) as Eugenie (Swing) and Rhys Taylor (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) as Theo/Space Diva.
Boasting a pulsating soundtrack, streamed by millions and heard across 125 countries, EUGENIUS! is a hilarious love letter to the iconic movies, comic books and nostalgia of the 80’s. A champion of the underdog, a place where anyone can become the hero. With our legion of Eugenies we’re set to prove that together we are mighty.
Written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, and directed by Hannah Chissick, EUGENIUS! will run at the Turbine Theatre from Friday 17 March until Sunday 28 May 2023.
EUGENIUS! has Musical Direction by Nick Pinchbeck, Set and Lighting Design by Andrew Exeter, Sound Design by Alistair Penman and Video by Andy Walton, with Choreography by Aaron Renfree.
