Bluebird - 2009 Original CastBluebird - 2009 Original Cast

Bluebird is a passionate new musical with music and lyrics by Gareth Peter. It is set during World War Two and charts the story of ordinary people living in extraordinary times. It tells the heartbreaking story of Roberta Jones (Sarah Lark) as she comes to terms with her husband Pete (Stephen Weller) going off to war. Roberta, a nurse, soon meets the charismatic U.S. serviceman Ben (Ramin Karimloo) and a friendship grows, much to the disapproval of best friend, Jane (Abi Finely).

Gareth Peter, a British composer from Northamptonshire, has penned five musicals including the supernatural drama, Escape and an Egyptian retelling of the Prince and the Pauper story, A Million Grains of Sand. It took him two years to create Bluebird, which had a workshop premier in 2008. The album was recorded between February and July 2009

The cast Includes Ramin Karimloo (cast as the Phantom in the new sequel Love Never Dies), Sarah Lark, Stephen Weller, Abi Finley, Gareth Chart, Robert Archibald, Gemma Sutton, Jeff Nicholson, Greg Bradley and Kit Orton.
