The multi-award winning musical Once is set to tour the UK in 2020. Following a run at Fairfield Hallls in Croydon the tour will visit Southend, Liverpool, York, Woking, Milton Keynes, Bath, Coventry, Stoke, Malvern, Aberdeen, Nottingham, Oxford, Brighton, Sheffield, Cardiff, Southampton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Canterbury, Leicester, Salford, Newcastle, Plymouth and Glasgow next year.

The musical was adapted from the critically acclaimed and much-loved film which details the journey of two characters - a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician - who unexpectedly fall in love. Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways.
The 2007 film was celebrated for its original score including the Academy Award-winning song 'Falling Slowly'. The theatrical show is a charming and uplifting tale of hopes and dreams that was adapted for the stage in 2018.
Now Once embarks on its first major UK tour after acclaimed runs on Broadway and in the West End. The musical has earned awards across the world including a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album, eight Tony Awards and an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
The cast will be led by Daniel Healy as Guy and Emma Lucia as Girl, who will revive the role following critical and audience acclaim in the production's 2018 premiere. Emma Lucia made her professional debut as Marilyn and understudying Carole King in the UK Tour of Beautiful, before taking on the role of Girl in Once.
Daniel Healy is a singer-songwriter, musician and actor, who has co-written songs for multi-platinum artist Ronan Keating and more. His theatre credits include Backbeat and Once, both in the West End. Further casting is to be announced.
