Chichester Festival Theatre's acclaimed production of Guys and Dolls will transfer to the West End later this year as part of a UK tour, opening at the Savoy Theatre after Gypsy closes in November.

Gordon Greenberg's production, which will see Sophie Thompson and Jamie Parker reprise their roles, will play a limited 13-week run at the Savoy from 10 December 2015.

The tour will open in Manchester on 10 November, and will also visit Birmingham, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes and Bristol. Further casting is to be announced.

The show is choreographed by Carlos Acosta and Andrew Wright and musical direction is from Gareth Valentine. Design is by Peter McKintosh, with lighting and sound by Tim Mitchell and Paul Groothuis.

The transfer will mark the second Chichester production at the Savoy in a row; Imelda Staunton stars in Gypsy there until 28 November.
