Hannah – The Soldier Diaries Set To Take To The Stage!

Hannah – The Soldier Diaries, a brand new, original musical with a big bunch of eclectic original songs, a powerful love story and a huge heart, will be performed from 9th to 14th April 2024 inclusive.

The production at the historic Scarborough Spa Theatre, will feature a foreword narrated by actor and presenter Ross Kemp, along with the D-Day Darlings, the best-selling female group to emerge from Britain’s Got Talent.

The musical is set in a number of Scarborough’s timeless locations and is written by Steve Wallis and features a mix of national and local talent both on and offstage.

Steve said: “Scarborough’s inspirational locations, its local talent and the broad emotional range of the story combine to make this inspirational production a memorable work of love for all those involved.

“We hope we’ve created a powerful, original musical with complex, timeless and universal themes at its heart.”

Based on the audiobook of the same name, Hannah -The Soldier Diaries features protagonists Hannah, a student hairdresser, and Jack, who is serving in the British Army in the Afghan War.

Steve continued: “We are thrilled that Ross Kemp and the D-Day Darlings are supporting our production. However, we haven’t forgotten our local roots: we are using many strands of the local business community to help with this production.

“Zoe Wright, a leading local talent and no stranger to the Scarborough Spa herself is cast as Hannah along with many more local talented actors and actresses who will be confirmed in the coming months.

“Love, longing and resilience are common themes which will have emotional appeal to different generations. These themes will transcend time, bringing into focus aspects of the human condition including loss, love and endurance, seamlessly linking the past and future together coupled with a sense of hope.”
