Ben Gregor makes his feature directorial debut based on the original script by Paul Gerstenberger. The story follows a group of misfits with a dream to organise a show to save their youth centre.

Walsh recently finished her sell-out Shrek the Musical tour as Princess Fiona. She replaced Amanda Holden in September.

The star is expected to reunite with Girl's Aloud bandmates Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts for the girl group's tenth anniversary later this year.
