The Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever, is to premiere this December, according to reports.
The long-awaited show, penned by Jennifer Saunders and Mamma Mia writer, Judy Craymer, will take over from Ghost the Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre, reports the Daily Mail.
There were reports back in April that the production had been delayed due to bickering between Mel C and Mel B, with a source telling the New York Post:
“Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm just cannot agree. It is driving Jennifer [Saunders] crazy.”
Vivia Forever will apparently tell the story of a mother who takes her daughter to audition for a talent show and will be set against a backdrop of the Spice Girls’ music.
All of the girls are said to be involved with the project, however none of them will star in the production.
Sporty Spice Mel C however, will be appearing as Mary Magdalene in a new production of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar, alongside Chris Moyles and Tim Minchin, this September.
Auditions for Viva Forever are set to take place in July, with rehearsals to follow in September and previews in November.
Representatives for both musicals are yet to comment or confirm any dates.
