Cast joining Janie Dee, Joanna Riding and Hadley Fraser in the upcoming concert performance of Carousel has been announced.

The show, which is taking place at Cadogan Hall on 19 May, will feature Gavin Spokes as Enoch Snow, Chizzy Akudolu as Mrs Mullin, Stewart Clarke as Jigger and Lucy Schaufer as Nettie Fowler. The GSA singers from the Guildford School of Acting will also be joining the production.

The musical is Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's piece based on Ferenc Molnar's 1909 play Liliom. It follows carousel barker Billy Bigelow and his romance with millworker Julie Jordan.

The one-off concert will feature a 31-piece orchestra conducted by Alex Parker playing Don Walker's complete original orchestration.

Further star casting is to be announced.
