The musical is described in a press release as "a fantasy musical set in a care home. After a magical turn of events, the kids are transported into a world that will change their lives forever."

Speaking to FACT, Klein said that fellow producers Manara and Sweyn Jupiter are involved in the production. "I play the older sister of a younger girl and they both ended up in the care home because their mum abandoned them," she said of her role. "The whole thing is about how the younger sister just wants to get her mum back and we have an argument about it, which leads to us ending up in this magical world."

Klein's most recent release was her EP Tommy, which dropped in September 2017.
