Corrie's Steven Arnold stars in The Charlie Chaplin Story

Steven Arnold, best known for playing Ashley Peacock in Coronation Street, is starring as Charlie Chaplin’s brother in this heart-warming and hilarious musical about the first true British icon of Cinema.

Steven is joined onstage by Nicole Faraday (Bad Girls / Emmerdale), Helena Gullan (‘Once’- London’s West End) and a cast of six West End actor-musicians who play over 20 instruments live onstage!

This powerful musical tale weaves through Chaplin’s modest and troubled childhood growing up in the gutters of Victorian London.  It focuses on Chaplin’s relationship with his mother who, after being admitted to an asylum, was forced to put her sons into the workhouse. It moves through Chaplin’s early showbiz career on the Vaudeville stage, through the primitive years of early Hollywood and finishes with Chaplin discovering his big breakthrough film which made him a household name - ‘The Kid’. An untold story too fascinating to miss.

The creative team include the multi-award winning writer Stuart Price and No1 hit-single writer Jake Field as composer.

The musical is going on tour during June and July and the list of tour dates is here.
