Torchwood: The Musical
Just to prove that Torchwood fans have stolen the mantel of “most bonkers fan”, a group of them are auditioning for players in a Torchwood music, reports musicals and hotel site show-and-stay.co.uk.
Aiming to go into production in early 2010, the producers are attempting to succeed in presenting a professional standard play – however the cast will not be compensated so as to avoid breaching copyright law.
Apparently 10 characters are required, including Captain Jack Harness, Owen Harper and Ianto Jones; Captain Jack’s character breakdown requires the successful actor to sing in the style of John Barrowman.
You might have trouble thinking something like this up – hopefully the script will do the show justice, and if anyone involved is reading, we’d love to hear from you via the Connect page, if only to get a clue as to the plot.
Presumably in this version, Ianto doesn’t die.
