Production images have been released of the new cast of Eugenius! which is in previews at The Other Palace. Here’s a glimpse of what to expect…
Written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! is a story of superheroes, dreams with a dash of romance thrown in.
Eugenius! tells the story of Eugene, a teenage boy whose nightly dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains may just be the ticket to him creating his very own comic book movie in Hollywood. Joined by his best friends ‘Janey’ and ‘Feris’, our comic writing genius must discover the true meaning of growing up, finding the superhero within, saving the world from both earthbound villains and possibly those from distant galaxies, and along the way, falling in love.
Directed by Ian Talbot, the cast is led by Rob Houchen in the lead role of Eugene. He is joined by Laura Baldwin as Eugene’s love interest Janey, Daniel Buckley as Feris, Scott Paige as Theo. Alison Arnopp as Space Diva/Mrs Truthstretcher – all of whom are reprising their roles in the production.
The rest of the cast includes: Neil McDermott (Evil Lord Hector), Emily Tierney (Carrie/Super Hot Lady), Alex Bourne (Lex), Simon Thomas (Gerhard/Tough Man), Christopher Ragland (Road Show, Forbidden Broadway, Little Shop of Horrors, Menier Chocolate Factory) as Eugene’s Dad/Lord Tough Man, Tom Senior (Kenickie, Grease, Jesus, Godspell, UK tours) as Stock Jock/Flock of Eagles Singer, Titus Rowe, Laurence. Alex Tranter, Ben Darcy, Dilllon Scott-Lewis, Lauren Cancannon, Amy West and Sasha Wareham.
