Tyne and Wear Metro the Musical rehearsals


Tyne and Wear Metro: The Musical - a BBC Newcastle film marking the 30th anniversary of the metro system - has had its first rehearsal.

The Sage Gateshead was the venue for those chosen from recent auditions to get a taste of what's in store.

Benjamin Till, who's composing and directing the musical, has finished the music and lyrics.

Now he starts the mammoth task of teaching them to his newly acquired choir of amateurs.

BBC Look North's Sharuna Sagar had a front row seat at the rehearsals.
