We are delighted to bring you news of a new musical ‘Class’ written by Peter Dayson, International Crossover Project Manager at Havering College.  Peter is an established writer, director and producer, having previously worked for Walt Disney and the Stafford Gatehouse Theatre.

The musical tells the story of two classes from adjacent schools – one mainstream and one special school – through the interactions and relationships of several main characters including dinner ladies, teachers and pupils (aged 6 to 16).  Whilst preparing for a singing competition, their perceptions of each other and their behaviours towards each other are explored. 

‘Class’ is scattered with humour, a ‘feel good’ ending and is an evening for all ages to enjoy.  The musical will be showing for one night only at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Haymarket London on Sunday 7th May.

The entire cast and crew for the musical have been assembled from students, staff, carers and volunteers at the college, as well as pupils from main stream schools and special schools in Havering. 

The Crossover project, which Peter manages, is in its 12th year and previous productions include Joseph, Godspell and Hair.

Peter said:

“The Crossover project, is a not for profit, inclusive, community scheme which enables students from the college and across the borough to put on a full scale musical, in a prime West End theatre.  Established industry colleagues including casting directors, producers, agents and professionals from Apple Records, Sony, Talk-Back Thames, Disney and more, come to see the amazing range of talent here at the college and from Havering schools.  This, in turn, has led to placements, work experience, jobs and careers.
I have wanted to write ‘Class’ for many years.  I am passionate about delivering professional, inclusive productions featuring the talents of children and young people with a full range of abilities, special needs or disabilities.  I have been very lucky to work with hundreds of exceptional people over the last 12 years.
‘Class’ has a cast and crew of 120 all of whom will experience the exciting challenge of delivering a musical in a London theatre. 
For me, the most rewarding aspect is the feedback I receive from those who have taken part and their families.  These musicals unite people who may not necessarily have opportunities to work together – their friendships, creativity and genuine team spirit make The Crossover project a passion for me.
It is funded solely by the college and championed by our Principal Maria Thompson.  Ticket sales also help cover the costs”. 

If you have a child interested in taking part in the project, please contact Peter Dayson on 01708 462740. 

Tickets for ‘Class’ are available for £19.75 (Box Office: 01708 462470)
