New cast members have been announced for the extended run of Soho Cinders, now playing at the Charing Cross Theatre until the 11th January.
It has been announced that Michael Mather (Hades in the world premiere of ‘Mythic’ at Charing Cross Theatre, Jimmy in ‘Flashdance’) will step into the role of Robbie alongside Livvy Evans (‘Motown’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Sister Act’) as Velcro with Robert Grose ('KInky Boots' 'Sister Act' 'Over the Rainbow') as Lord Bellingham when the show extends from 23rd December 2019 to 11th January 2020.
Meanwhile, the new cast also includes Dayle Hodge as William George (‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Jersey Boys’, ‘Les Misérables’). He joins the previously announced Hollie Taylor (‘Matilda’, ‘Betty Blue Eyes’, ‘Oliver!’) who performed her first show as Dana earlier this week. Tori Hargreaves, Lewis Asquith and Michaela Stern continue in their roles.
New to the ensemble will be Liam McHugh (‘Saturday Night Fever’, ‘We Will Rock You’) who joins Melissa Rose, Luke Byrne, Savannah Reed, Thomas Ball, Laura Fulgenzi and Jade Bailey who will all remain with the show until the end of its extended run.
When impoverished student Robbie (Luke Bayer) becomes romantically involved with engaged London Mayoral candidate James Prince (Lewis Asquith), his lap-dancing step-sisters become the least of his problems! James and Robbie’s worlds collide forcing them to fight for their own fairy-tale ending. Celebrating London’s most colourful district and mixing politics, sex-scandals and true love, Soho Cinders is a deliciously naughty musical update of the Cinderella fairy tale boasting an infectious score with music by George Stiles and lyrics by Anthony Drewe with a book by Anthony Drewe and Elliot Davis.
As well as being directed by Will Keith, the production’s creative team includes: Choreographer Adam Haigh, Musical Director Sarah Morrison, Associate Musical Director Joe Louis Robinson, Set Designer Justin Williams, Lighting Designer Jack Weir, Sound Designer Andrew Johnson and Costume Designer Nicole Garbett.
