Pictures have been released offering a first look at rehearsals of Sweet Charity, starring Arthur Darvill and Anne-Marie Duff.

The show, directed by Josie Rourke, opens at the Donmar Warehouse on 17 April, with previews from 6 April.

The rest of the cast includes Lizzy Connolly, Lauren Drew, Jo Eaton-Kent, Will Haswell, Charlotte Jaconelli, Stephen Kennedy, Debbie Kurup, Martin Marquez, Ryan Reid, Amy Ellen Richardson, Danielle Steers and Shaq Taylor.
