Initial casting has been announced for new musical Fiver, which has its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse in July.

Alex James Ellison and Tom Lees' musical, which first had a workshop at Crazy Coqs in 2017, is about a five pound note that passes between different individuals in London.

It will star Daniel Buckley (Eugenius!), Hiba Elchikhe (Disney's Aladdin) and Kayleigh McKnight (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) with musical direction by Lees and set design by Justin Williams.

More cast and creative team to be announced soon.

Ellison and Lees said: "Since Crazy Coqs we have expanded the show, both in terms of length and complexity. Fiver now runs 40 minutes longer and we are massively excited to see the changes we have made come to life on stage."
