THE Barn Theatre in Cirencester has announced that their reimagined production of an award-winning musical will run for an extra week.

The last performance of Once at the popular Cotswold theatre was supposed to be on Saturday, August 12 but the team have decided to extend its run until Saturday, August 19.

Based on the critically acclaimed movie (written and directed by John Carney) Once features music and lyrics by the Academy award-winning team of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, including the acclaimed song Falling Slowly. 

Set in Dublin, the musical follows the unforgettable story of an Irish street musician and a funny Czech woman, drawn together by their shared love of music. 

Sarah Moss will play the role of Girl alongside Tomas Wolstenholme as Guy. 

Joining the pair in the cast are Amy Bastani as Reza/ex-Girlfriend, Toby Bradford as Da/bank Manager and Fiona Bruce as Baruska.

Theo Diedrick will play Eamon/Emcee, Thomas Fabian Parrish as Svec and David Shute as Billy.

The production’s musical director Alex Turney - who appeared in the original West End cast of the musical - will take over the role of Andrej from Harry Curley from Monday, August 14.
