What We Did Next is an ambitious Liverpool-based musical theatre group. It sprung from the realisation that Liverpool had nowhere for people who love musical theatre to gather and put on great shows. WWDN aims to address this need whilst having a schedule that fits around people’s busy lives and also providing a vibrant social scene.
WWDN’s latest success was a twist on the Rogers and Hammerstein classic Carousel, which played to sell out audiences at the Unity Theatre in June 2014. Other shows include Company (2009), RENT (2010), Spring Awakening (2011), Into the Woods (2012), Elegies for Angels, Punks and Ranging Queens (2012), Batboy (2013).
