Wirral-based Pulse Records & Productions has released a video promotional clip for its musical show Twopence to Cross the Mersey.

The production is making a fourth appearance at the Liverpool Empire theatre in October having already taken £1.5million at the box office.

Based on a novel of the same name, Twopence to Cross the Mersey chronicles the author Helen Forrester’s early life during The Great Depression.

The book has been adapted for the stage by Rob Fennah and with readership breaking into the multi-millions the producers are working towards a tour of the UK and Ireland.

Liverpool actress Pauline Daniels and fellow Scouser Mark Moraghan make a return to the cast as Helen and John Forrester respectively.

Replacing Jamie Clarke as Young Helen, who received critical acclaim for her involvement in the last two productions, is Emma Grace Arends.

Former Shameless actor Ciaran Kellgren is also amongst the cast, working alongside his father Ian, who is directing the show.     

Twopence to Cross the Mersey opens at the Liverpool Empire Theatre from 6–17 October 2009.
