The show will run at Southwark Playhouse from 6 July - 30 July 2016

Helen Sheals (CBS Judy), Belinda Wollaston (Palace Judy) and Lucy Penrose (Young Judy) will be joined by a further cast of nine actor-musicians, playing a variety of historical figures who featured heavily in Garland’s biography.

The rest of the cast (also transferring from the original production) are Don Cotter, Rob Carter, Amanda Bailey, Joe Shefer, Tom Reade, Harry Anton, Carmelia Brown, Chris McGuigan and Perry Meadowcroft.

Set primarily during the filming of ‘The Judy Garland Show’ in 1963, Through the Mill chronicles the production difficulties behind the scenes, intercut with the young Judy Garland’s rise to fame through MGM in the 1930s, and her triumphant sell-out concert engagement at the Palace Theatre in the early 1950s. Audiences can expect to hear Garland classics including The Trolley Song, The Man That Got Away and Over The Rainbow.
