The cast of When Midnight Strikes

The production will be directed by Canterbury Christ Church alumni and professional director Max Reynolds.
He said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing When Midnight Strikes to the Marlowe Studio, especially as it is the first musical in the venue. This is a witty, entertaining piece of musical theatre and put together with the intimacy of the venue, will charm the audiences and provoke both tears and laughter.”
