Creating the role of Victoria is Australian dance and New Adventures principal, Ashley Shaw. She has been dancing with the company since 2009 and has previously received rave reviews of her performance as Aurora in Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty.

The creative team for the production includes the Tony and Olivier Award- winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set and Costumes), Paule Constable (Lighting) and Paul Groothuis (Sound Design).
