THE West End theatre company behind Fame and Little Shop of Horrors has revealed it is moving operations to Spain in order to escape Brexit.
The group, which is currently working on Dolly Parton musical 9 to 5 cited ‘Brexit fears’ as a reason behind the move.
“I would be lying if I didn’t say that Brexit contingency plans haven’t factored into strategic thoughts regarding a mainland Europe hub,” said executive director David Hutchinson.
Selladoor hope to use their European address to focus more on Spanish-language productions, including in South America.
The new work space is set to open in January 2020, at the same time Selladoor’s musical Flashdance hits the stage in the Spanish capital.
The company, founded in 2008 and based in Greenwich, also has offices in New York, Shanghai and Bangkok.
Selladoor Worldwide’s back catalogue also includes: Jersey Boys, Of Mice And Men, Footloose and James and the Giant Peach.
