Producers Playful Productions, Stage Play and Cedella Marley have announced that tickets for the brand new musical Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical are now on sale.

Lively up yourself and celebrate the story of Jamaica’s global superstar, as the electrifying new production, Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical, bursts into life from June 2021 at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue. From the hills of rural Jamaica, armed only with his overwhelming talent and righteous beliefs, Bob Marley applied himself with resolute determination to achieve international acclaim for his prophetic musical message – a gospel of love and unity.

With unlimited access to Bob Marley’s catalogue, Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical is written by Lee Hall, directed by Clint Dyer and will star Arinzé Kene as Bob Marley.

The creative team for the production has also been announced and is set to include: choreography by Shelley Maxwell, musical supervision by Phil Bateman, set design by Chloe Lamford, lighting design by Charles Balfour, sound design by Tony Gayle, costume design by Lisa Duncan and video design Tal Yarden.

Director Clint Dyer said: “At long last! We have been waiting too long for this moment. It is a dream come true to be part of this project and I cannot wait to get into the rehearsal room to start work with Arinzé and the whole team to bring Bob’s music and story to life. What better way to soothe our souls after this troublesome year than with the music and spirit of one of the world’s great prophets.”

Get Up Stand Up! will begin performances at the Lyric Theatre on the 28th May 2021.
