Daisy Pulls it Off
GSA | West End 

"It's a perfectly ripping yarn."  Daily Telegraph

Fresh from a sell-out run at the Bellairs Theatre, the first graduating year of GSA’s BA Actor-Musician programme brings this unique production full of quirky characters, splendid scrapes and fabulous friends, to delight West End audiences.

1927 - Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be granted access to the hallowed halls of the prestigious Grangewood School for Young Ladies. Enthusiastic and plucky to the last, Daisy finds herself struggling against unspeakable snobs Sybil Burlington and Monica Smithers, who concoct ghastly schemes to get her expelled. Ably assisted by her new best friend, madcap Trixie Martin, Daisy finds herself caught up in a series of irresistible adventures including the search for missing “Beaumont Treasure”. Can Daisy work out the mysterious clues and save the school from closure? What secrets does the enigmatic Mr Scoblowski hide?

'Genuinely enchanting' and 'utterly gorgeous' (★★★★ Time Out), Hannah Chissick's 'delightful' (★★★★★ Broadway World), 'decadent' (★★★★★ Attitude) and 'irresistibly charming' (★★★★ The Stage) production tells the miraculous tale of a shy, unassuming civil servant who dares to dream. A brilliantly witty and deliciously surreal musical fantasy about the power of self-belief. Catch it while you can!

When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.

Starring Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil, Anna O'Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle and Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, alongside Elissa Churchill (Elephant Steps), Claire Machin (Memphis), Keith Ramsay (The Cereal Cafe), Jack Reitman (Thrill Me), Steven Serlin (The Wild Party) and Alistair So (The King And I), with understudy Laura Barnard.

★★★★★ Mark Shenton 'I was walking through air as I left the theatre.'

★★★★★ MusicalTheatreReview 'Lifts Legrand's extraordinary music to even greater heights.'

★★★★ WhatsOnStage 'No shortage of cinematic dazzle and it never misses a beat.'
