Established in 2017, Global Musicals is a brand-new theatre production company aiming to take new British musicals to the next step. Founded by producers Wendy and Andy Barnes, Global Musicals strives to bring musical theatre to new audiences and create shows that appeal directly to a younger generation of soon-to-be theatre-goers. Their award-winning new musicals have included Pieces of String, a moving story split between the present day and 1940s World War Two, and Six the Musical, a retelling of Henry VIII’s six wives as they are transformed into pop princesses. Global Musicals have also recently released their groundbreaking immersive nightclub theatre show, Club Mex, where audiences can experience the Ibiza club scene along with the characters on stage.
Founders Andy and Wendy also produce the not-for-profit theatre company Perfect Pitch, who work alongside Global Musicals to seek out new talent through workshops and performances by emerging actors, writers, singers and dancers. A product of this collaboration, Club Mex is one of the up-and-coming Perfect Pitch musicals produced with Global Musicals.
