Further casting has been announced for Matthew White’s upcoming production of Sandy Wilson’s musical, playing at the Menier Chocolate Factory from the 22nd November until the 7th March.
Joining the previously announced Jack Butterworth (Bobby van Husen), Janie Dee (Mme Dubonnet), Adrian Edmondson (Lord Brockhurst), Tiffany Graves (Hortense), Dylan Mason (Tony), Amara Okereke (Polly) and Issy van Randwyck (Lady Brockhurst) are Tom Bales (Alphonse), Ryan Carter (Pierre), Chloe Goodliffe (Nancy), Matthew Ives (Pépé), Bethany Huckle (Lolita), Emily Langham (Fay), Gabrielle Lewis-Dodson (Maisie), Annie Southall (Dulcie), Peter Nash (Marcel) and Robert Portal (Percival Brown).
Sandy Wilson’s all-singing all-dancing love letter to 1920s musical comedies returns for the first major London revival in over 10 years. Set in Madame Dubonnet’s finishing school in the south of France, these perfect young ladies burst into song at the least provocation, and forbidden boy friends are forever popping through the French windows to sing and dance with them. Since its premiere in 1953, this light-hearted soufflé of a show has delighted audiences worldwide and has become one of the most well-loved British musicals of all time.
As well as being directed by Matthew White, the production will feature choreography by Bill Deamer, designs by Paul Farnsworth, lighting by Paul Anderson, sound design by Gregory Clarke, hair and wig design by Richard Mawbey and musical supervision and direction by Simon Beck.
The Boy Friend will play at the Menier Chocolate Factory from the 22nd November until 7th March.
