A brand new original musical by Shy Music in development

South African Production Company, Shy Music, is proud to announce a thrilling, brand-new, grand-scale original musical Clarence Square, opening in the Czech Republic in April 2023.

As the Company gears up for the return of the re-worked Calling Us Home for a short season at the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town in February 2023 – before embarking on its own International Tour – work is well advanced for the next production from this Cape Town based Production House.

Written and composed by composer and producer Alice Gillham, the story is set in 1904 in Toronto after the Great Fire of that year decimated the City. Clarence Square combines thrilling, taut suspense, rich characters, witty humour and bewitching melodies to grip you from the opening terrifying moment!

Clarence Square is set for its Premiere Season in the Czech Republic, from 22 April 2023, which will be followed by a tour of a German Language version in Europe. 

Shy Music will shortly be announcing auditions for the casting of the English language production in South Africa, which will run for a short season at Artscape Theatre in Cape Town in November 2023, before it embarks on an international tour of English-speaking territories.

Following the premiere season at Městské divadlo Brno in the Czech Republic – Clarence Square will tour to additional cities in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and South Africa, with more countries currently in negotiation.
