The concert production of the Broadway musical will perform at the Eventim Apollo on the 4th December.

Full casting has now been announced for the upcoming UK premiere of Diana: the Musical, heading to London this December. Joining the previously announced Kerry Ellis as Diana Princess of Wales, Maiya Quansah-Breed as Diana Spencer and Denise Welch as the Queen will be: Alice Fearn (Come From Away, Wicked, Les Misérables) as Camilla Parker Bowles, Andy Coxon (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, Sister Act) as Prince Charles, Jay Perry (Back To The Future, Hamilton) as James Hewitt and Aleyna Mohanraj (Annie Get Your Gun, The Secret Garden) as Sarah Spencer. Meanwhile, the concert production will also include an ensemble cast of students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

It is 1996. Diana has divorced the heir to the throne. She is free.

This radical new concert version of Diana: The Musical, hands the microphone to Diana as she reflects on her past. In a theatrical twist, this is a tale in two parts, narrated by Diana (Kerry Ellis) as she looks back on herself as the 19-year-old Diana (Maiya Quansah-Breed) that captured the nation. Denise Welch guest-stars as The Queen.

The musical features music by Bon Jovi keyboard player David Bryan and book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro, the team behind the Tony Award-winning musical ‘Memphis’. Aside from the Netflix recording, this will be the first time the UK has seen this Broadway musical live on stage.

This concert production of the musical will be directed by  Owen Horsley, whose previous credits also include Henry VI: Rebellion, The War of the Roses, Maydays, Salome, The Famous Victories of Henry V (Royal Shakespeare Company) and Linck & Mülhahn (Hampstead Theatre). The musical director is Adam Hoskins (The Secret Garden, Once in Concert, Annie Get Your Gun).
