The cast joining Michael Crawford in the upcoming musical production of The Go-Between has been announced.

Issy Van Randwyck will play alongside Crawford as Mrs Maudsley, while Stuart Ward and Gemma Sutton will take on the roles of young lovers Ted and Marian.

The young Leo Colston will be played in alternation by Luka Green, William Thompson and Johnny Evans Hutchison. The rest of the cast includes Julian Forsyth, Stephen Carlile, Silas Wyatt-Barke, Jenni Bowden, John Addison, Archie Stevens, Matty Norgren, Samuel Menhinick, Jane Quinn, Jessica Duncan, Robert Traynor, and Michael Colbourne.

Crawford plays Leo Colston in the production which marks his return to theatre for the first time since 2011, when he played in The Wizard of Oz.

Van Randwyck is known for being part of the cabaret group Fascinating Aida, while Ward starred as Guy in Once and Sutton performed in the recent production of Gypsy in the West End.

The Go-Between is an adaptation of an LP Hartley novel by David Wood, with a new musical score by Richard Taylor. The story tells of a man who remembers a long hot summer of 1900 when he acted as a go-between for the upper class Marian and her tenant-farmer lover.

The Go-Between runs at the Apollo Theatre from 7 June to 15 October.
