Meet the cast Behind Maggie May

Published on 14 August 2018

It’s the age old tale of an Irish girl coming to Liverpool who never leaves. 

We know the city is famous for its Irish population. 

In October, Bob Eaton’s brand new musical Maggie May comes to the Court for the first time.  Find out what happens when a young Maggie gets more than she bargained for in a city that was only meant to be a stopover.

It’s featuring great live music from a very talented cast.  Find out who they are below.

Tom Connor: This isn’t Tom’s first rodeo on the Royal Court stage.  He was part of Liverpool’s fab four back in 2014 playing Paul McCartney in Lennon and was Flounder in the Everyman and Playhouse’s Rock n Roll Panto.
