Lia’s Guide to Winning the Lottery
book by Keren David
music by Paul Herbert
lyrics by Lesley ross
currently in development with perfect pitch
Based on the brilliant novel of the same name by award-winning author Keren David, this is a hilarious, fun family musical with an irresistible pop-infused score. Lia’s mother is a nag, her sister’s a pain and she’s getting nowhere in pursuit of the mysterious Raf. Then she wins eight million pounds in the lottery, and suddenly everything is different. Everyone dreams of winning the lottery, but what’s it really like? Lia’s Guide to Winning the Lottery tells the story of a sixteen-year-old girl who becomes a national celebrity in a matter of minutes. But can money really buy you happiness if you can’t have the guy of your dreams?
Whilst in development the show has had productions with UCLAN, The MTA (London) and the University of Cumbria.
The show is ideal for youth groups and young people to perform and provides a fun contemporary story with lots of ensemble opportunities making it particularly appealing for amateur groups too.
A studio album of the music is in the planning stages and the show will be available for licensing soon.
Below is footage from the student production performed by The MTA at the Bridewell Theatre, London in 2013.
