critical triumph. For information about the final performing version and the 2014 London Workshop please click here.
The promotional CD has newly orchestrated songs and wonderful performances from Pia Douwes, Dave Willetts, Samantha Barks,
Uwe Kröger and Barbara Obermeier. Dave Willetts's fantastic recording of 'Isn't Life Surprising' is now available to hear on Stephen's

Rodgers and Hammerstein Theatricals Europe will license THE RETURN OF PETER PAN in certain territories (Germany, Switzerland
and Austria). The show is a thrilling musical sequel to Peter Pan.
NIGHT SHOOT The powerful and moving new version is complete! The first complete read-through took place on September 26th 2017.
The musical is set around the filming of Les Enfants du Paradis in Nice, in Nazi occupied France and centres on brother and sister Lucien and Blanche Dombâsle. Book and lyrics are by the distinguished author Jonathan Miles.
SEA CHANGE Book and lyrics by the celebrated author Michelle Magorian (Goodnight Mister Tom). The complete musical was read and
played through for the first time at The Actors Centre recently. Songs from the show were recorded by Meredith Braun, Marilyn Cutts,
Lewis Rae, Benjamin Froehlich and Daniel Lillie at Goldsmiths Music Studios.
LOST WEST END - An exciting new album from Stage Door Records celebrating Lost West End shows, an essential pick in The Sunday Times.
The album includes Don't Look Back from MADDIE (Keeling, McKenna) and Say Goodbye from LA CAVA (composed with Laurence O'Keefe,
lyrics by Shaun McKenna, additional music by John Cameron). Elaine Paige played Don't Look Back on her Radio 2 musicals show.
Don't Look Back has also recently been featured on BwayTunes.com who commented:
"When the show opened, it garnered mixed reviews, but there were some raves, notably from Charles Spencer in the Daily Telegraph who
wrote that it was "The show we've all been waiting for." You should get a pretty good idea of why Spencer also praised the score as you listen
to 'Don’t Look Back,' as performed by original cast members Graham Bickley and Summer Rognlie."
Please check out the videos on the McKenna/Keeling YouTube Channel. Our songs have been performed by actors such as Dave Willetts,
Luke Evans, Meredith Braun, John Barrowman, Kevin Colson, Graham Bickley, Samantha Barks, Marilyn Cutts, Oliver Tobias, Sue Mathys,
Alen Hodzovic, Pia Douwes, Uwe Kröger, Patric Scott, Helen Hobson, Lorna Dallas, Angela Richards and Summer Rognlie to name some.
Stephen also has a dedicated YouTube Channel for work with other writers and his choral music.
