A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of “Lizzie” at Hope Mill Theatre

Manchester’s beloved Hope Mill Theatre has once again graced the stage with a mesmerising production, and we couldn’t be prouder to play a pivotal role in bringing this theatrical marvel to life. Just as we illuminated the success of “Rose,” we are thrilled to take you on a journey behind the curtains of Hope Mill Theatre’s latest sensation, “Lizzie.”

About “Lizzie”

In the heart of Manchester, “Lizzie” is a musical inspired by the infamous true story of Lizzie Borden, a young woman from Fall River, Massachusetts, who became notorious in the late 19th century due to her alleged involvement in the gruesome axe murders of her father and stepmother. The musical delves into the complex psychology of Lizzie and explores themes of love, betrayal, and redemption in the backdrop of a chilling mystery. With a powerful rock score and captivating storytelling, “Lizzie” promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats. The production features four talented leading ladies who bring the central characters to life, creating a rich tapestry of emotions and intrigue.
