Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the previously unreleased original studio cast recording of the 1985/86 Joan Of Arc musical 'Jeanne' will be released on May 25th, 2015. The CD release continues Stage Door's commitment to preserve 'lost' British theatre scores of the past 50 years. 'Jeanne' is the dramatic story of one of history's most charismatic and courageous women, Joan of Arc. Olivier Award nominated singer songwriter Shirlie Roden composed Jeanne over a five month period in 1981. She continued to work on it's development in the following years, working closely with music producer John Miller, theatre producer Bill Kenwright, and creating additional rewrites under the guidance of director Robin Phillips. The epic rock-opera premiered at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in September 1985, starring Siobhan McCarthy in the title role alongside Peter Straker and Malcolm Roberts. The production subsequently transferred to London's Sadler's Wells for a limited season in March 1986 directed by Bill Kenwright and starring Rebecca Storm as Jeanne. 'Jeanne' traces the story of the legendary fifteenth-century Joan of Arc, a young peasant girl destined for greatness, who claims to have been chosen by God to liberate her country and to crown the Dauphin as King of France. The dramatic raising of the siege of Orleans finds Jeanne fulfilling her vision, standing beside the Dauphin as he is crowned. After failing to retake Paris, Jeanne is later captured and taken to Rouen to stand trial where her destiny is sealed as she is condemned as a heretic and sentenced to be burned. The previously unreleased original studio cast album of 'Jeanne', recorded during the show's development, now makes it's debut on CD featuring composer Shirlie Roden as Jeanne alongside performers Richard Barnes ('Jesus Christ Superstar' - Original London Cast), Peter Straker ('Hair' - Original London Cast) and Carl Wayne ('Blood Brothers').
