Police Cops: The Musical to transfer to The Large at Southwark Playhouse Borough

Friday, 7 July 2023

After their successful performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, Police Cops: The Musical, will be moving to The Large theatre at Southwark Playhouse Borough for a limited run. The show will be running from September 8, 2023, to October 14, 2023.

After achieving five years of sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, the internationally acclaimed comedy troupe Police Cops returns with an updated version of their very first musical. With an exciting new score composed by the Brit Award-winning Ben Adams (known for his work on "Eugenius! The Musical"), the Police Cops are bringing their high-energy, action-packed physical comedy to the stage in their most ambitious production yet.

The creators of the show, Zachary Hunt, Nathan Parkinson, and Tom Roe, are joined by Melinda Orengo and Natassia Bustamante. The cast is completed by Mychele Lebrun and Ben Lancaster.

Follow rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson as he enters the force with the intention to protect and serve. However, Jimmy finds himself in deep trouble, paired up with a rebellious Police Cop and under the pressure of a racist Chief. With guns at the ready and safety catches off, Jimmy embarks on a thrilling adventure from the tough streets of America to Mexico, where his destiny awaits in the form of the seasoned ex-Police Cop, Juanita Gonzalez.

The creative team behind the production includes Rich Morris (Musical Supervision, Arrangements, and Orchestrations), Andrew Exeter (Set & Lighting), Charlie Smith (Sound), and Pearson Casting (Casting Director).
