Pics: Corrie musical "Street of Dreams" launch

Today's been the day when the Corrie musical Street of Dreams was officially launched. ITV are calling it "Corrie meets Moulin Rouge" and it will see current Coronatio Street cast members such as Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) and Katy Cavanagh (Julie Carp) team up with Corrie veterans Julie Goodyear (Bet Lynch) and Kevin Kennedy (Curly Watts.)

Comedian Paul O'Grady will compere the show, which sees guest stars pay homage to famous roles. Comprised of 26 songs played by a 25-piece orchestra, the show includes memorable scenes from the past played on giant screens. It will premiere in Manchester on May 9 before going on tour to Dublin, Belfast and Newcastle.

Anyone going? Afraid it's a cobble-step too far for this Corrie fan, musicals lover and ardent theatre-goer.
