Soldier of Orange – The Musical is the first production by Dutch Producer NEW Productions, the producing company of investor Amerborgh. NEW Productions aims to expand historical awareness through music theatre, using history to inspire audiences of today and unique locations to enhance the storyline. NEW Productions, led by Fred Boot, believes in small but committed teams dedicated to one running performance and one or two new productions in preparations.
With Soldier of Orange – The Musical playing throughout 2019 in the Netherlands, we have explored new markets for this chapter of WWII history. After extensive research in the UK the producers have found an ideal location in London’s Royal Docks, opposite London’s City Airport. Subject to planning permission, the producers expect to start building their innovative new theatre by the end of 2019, with the aim of opening a UK-version of Soldier of Orange – The Musical in the second half of 2020.
Alongside this, NEW Production is developing New Amsterdam – The Musical. This production is inspired by the origins of New York city in the 17th century; working with the creative team of: writer Edwin de Vries, writer / director Theu Boermans, lyricist Frans van Deursen and composer / music producer Martijn Spierenburg. The rehearsal ready version of the script is complete and alongside this team the set designer Bernhard Hammer and NEW Productions are looking for the ideal location to tell this incredible story. This successor of Soldier Of Orange – The Musical is expected to premiere in 2021.
