New musical comedy, ‘Ruby and the Vinyl’ is coming to Liverpool’s Royal Court this Spring


Ruby and the Vinyl is a brand new musical comedy, written by internationally renowned playwright John Godber in partnership with his daughter Elizabeth.

It is touring around some of the northern theatres this spring and is coming to The Studio at Liverpool’s Royal Court at the end of March.

Harrogate actress Millie Gaston, and Wakefield’s George Reid appear in this heart-warming account of two lost souls who meet in a vintage vinyl store, and who’s passion for all things retro takes them to places they could have never dreamed of. This quirky love story reminds us that life can be wonderful, but to be careful of what we wish for!

Double-BAFTA winner Godber said:

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Elizabeth on this funny, touching new musical, her characters are unique and fresh, and the songs are catchy and the singing is amazing.”

“Elizabeth, who has written several musicals in her own right said “Ruby is such a feel good show, I’m sure people of all ages will enjoy a good night out; it’s kind of a love story, but not…”

BBC supporting artist Ruby Macintosh has written some fantastic songs for the performance. Ruby is an accomplished singer/songwriter from Wakefield, who had several mentoring sessions from Sir Paul McCartney when she was a student at LIPA. Her vocal abilities are well known across the country, and she is in constant demand.

Millie Gaston trained at the Manchester School of Theatre, and George Reid is an accomplished musician and singer who trained at the Guildford School of Acting. Elizabeth said, “…with singers of this quality the show certainly packs a punch!’

The Production is produced by the John Godber Company and comes on the back of their very successful national tour of Sunny Side Up.

Godber said; “If you’re looking for something to lift your spirits after a pretty bleak time Ruby will certainly put a smile on your face!”

Kevin Fearon, the Executive Producer at Liverpool’s Royal Court said:

“We are so excited to have a brand new comedy show in our Studio. After 2 years, it is nice for us to get a good run of shows down there starting with this one which is running for 4 days. John Godber has written a few shows for us in the past such as Bouncers, which has been on our main stage several times and was always popular with our audience, so I am looking forward to seeing some new material which I’m sure the audience will love”.
