Frost and Hough
BEN FROST and RICHARD HOUGH
COMPOSER AND WRITER
FROST & HOUGH have been writing together since 2010. In 2015, they were commissioned to create a new adaptation of Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL for a festive run at The Castle Theatre, Wellingborough, and they are developing a new musical, THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE, an original fantasy story of magic and mayhem with James Seabright Productions. They have also been commissioned to write a new musical version of BILLY THE KID for the NYMT 2017 season.
Their first project was NIGHTMARE ON SUNSET BOULEVARD, and was quickly followed by a full-length original musical called POSSESSION (about a gothic murder in the backwaters of suburbia) and a one-woman show called SIN (about the wife of a US politician at the end of her tether). In addition they are developing a new musical version of AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS and an original project entitled NEON. Frost & Hough are looking forward to the new year and have exciting plans for 2016, including a fun new selection of comedy songs, guest spots and previews for their popular YouTube channel.
BEN FROST has written scores for original musicals and several short films, and his orchestrations and arrangements are regularly performed in the concert hall and in theatres. Ben was mentored by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and worked closely on the original production of LOVE NEVER DIES, THE WIZARD OF OZ, and the JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Arena Tour. He has also contributed arrangements to London and tour productions of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, CATS, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY, STARLIGHT EXPRESS and THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
RICHARD HOUGH has written for the stage, television and radio and has seen his work in print. His TV credits include comedy for the BBC (REVOLVER and THE SACK RACE) and factual entertainment for FIVE (DUMBER & DUMBER). He has written extensively for BBC Radio, contributing to LOOSE ENDS, THE NEWS QUIZ and THE NOW SHOW. He developed a sitcom called MAD ABOUT THE BOY and co-created a sketch-show (THE CHILLER CABINET). His plays include NIGHTSCHOOL, THREESOME and MURDER ON ICE.
