The musical returns to the Old Vic Theatre from the 20th May.

The Old Vic theatre has announced the full cast and creative team for the musical, which returns to London following a successful run back in 2016.

Joining the previously announced Andy Karl who will be reprising his role from the original production as Phil Connors will be: Tanisha Spring as Rita Hanson, Jasmin Colangelo (swing/puppetry captain), Kelly Ewins-Prouse (swing/dance captain), Kamilla Fernandes (ensemble (Debbie), Aimée Fisher (ensemble (Joelle), Zack Guest (swing), Nick Hayes (ensemble (Ralph), Jacqueline Hughes (ensemble (Piano Teacher), Ashlee Irish (ensemble (Larry), Chris Jenkins (ensemble (Gus), Andrew Langtree (ensemble (Ned Ryerson), Billy Nevers (ensemble (Fred), Eve Norris (ensemble (Nancy), Mark Pearce (ensemble (Sheriff), Ben Redfern (ensemble (Buster), Durone Stokes (ensemble (Deputy), Alex Stoll (ensemble (Billy), Jez Unwin (ensemble (Jenson), Annie Wensak (ensemble (Mrs Lancaster), and Matthew Whennell-Clark (swing/assistant dance captain).
