“I wish that my life were like a musical

That I could go waltzing through in style:

With each song and dance, I’d be less miserable;

With each sound of music, I’d smile…

For once, I’d not fear the routine,

My life would be fit for a queen"

King's Head Theatre and Spectacular Music present I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical, filmed by the award winning Shoot Media, as part of the King’s Head Theatre’s digital on demand season, Plays On Film

Boasting 20  ★★★★★ reviews and a West End Wilma Award following its sell-out 2019 Edinburgh Fringe run and featuring West End regulars Luke BayerCharlotte O’RourkeLucas Rush and Charlotte Anne Steen, this sparkling musical revue lifts the lid on the highs and lows of life as a musical theatre performer. 

From voice-straining high notes to limb-spraining high kicks, via on-stage smooches and off-stage feuds, this laugh-out-loud caper takes in the journey from wide-eyed drama school graduate to difficult diva (or past-it chorus member). 

With music and lyrics from iTunes comedy album chart-topper Alexander S. Bermange, get set for a thoroughly entertaining hour of awful auditions, debilitating dance routines and backstage backstabbing - as well as the magical moments that make it all worthwhile. 

Available to watch on demand via our new streaming service, KHTV, from Thursday 22 April 2021.
