Who Put Bella In The Wych Elm?
'Who Put Bella In The Wych Elm' is a musical with the book and lyrics by Ellis Kerkhoven and the music by Adam Gerber. The story follows the true case of a mystery body being found in a Wych Elm tree in Hagley in the 1940s. Through the musical we encounter the different theories of who Bella is, and indeed, who put her there. In August 2019 the musical had its first staged workshop by The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with the Musical Theatre Diploma students.
These recordings are demo versions of the live performance and are a selection of the songs performed. Thanks to our cast for singing on these recordings and for their commitment to the workshop.
