Carley Stenson to star in [title of show] at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

It has been announced that West End and Hollyoaks star, Carley Stenson will appear as Susan in the UK professional premiere of [title of show] at this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Three Weeks. Two friends. One original musical. [title of show] is a wickedly hilarious musical comedy about Hunter and Jeff, two struggling writers who decide to create a new musical for the inaugural New York Musical Theatre Festival. With a three week deadline looming but nothing to lose, they decide to try and create the show of their dreams, but soon realise that their mad dash to put pen to paper is infinitely more entertaining than the show they are writing. Their struggle to write a hit becomes the subject of the show, and so [title of show] is born, taking its name from the ominous space on the festival’s application form. Chronicling its own creation and the real life story of Hunter and Jeff’s journey to seeing their musical produced, [title of show] is a love letter to musical theatre, following your dreams, and daring to believe that you can actually get paid to do what you love.

Carley's West End credits include playing Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde at the Savoy Theatre. She most recently starred in The West End Men at the Vaudeville Theatre and is well known for playing Steph Cunningham in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks for over ten years. 

Carley’s other theatre credits include: Jill in Mother Goose (Palace, Newark), Sandy in Grease (Palace, Manchester), soloist in Summer Song (Bridgewater Hall), soloist in Remembering Diana (Her Majesty’s), Godspell (Globe, Blackpool), Princess Amneris in Aida (Opera House, Manchester), Dulcie in The Boy Friend (Wigan Youth Theatre) and Nancy in Oliver! (Neptune Theatre).
