Matt Barber and Victor McGuire will be joining the previously announced Pixie Lott in the UK tour of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Barber, known for his role in Downton Abbey will play Fred whilst McGuire who has starred in Trollied and Bread, will play Joe Bell.

The cast will be completed by Robert Calvert as Doc, Naomi Cranston as Mag, Charlie De Melo as José, Tim Frances as Rusty Trawler/Editor at 21, Andrew Joshi as Yunioshi, Melanie La Barrie as Mme Spanella, Sevan Stephan as OJ Berman/Dr Goldman, Katy Allen and Andy Watkins.

Lott will also share the role of Holly Golightly on tour with the previously announced Verity Rushworth.

Nikolai Foster's production, described as a 'play with music', will feature an onstage band and have music composed by Grant Olding (One Man, Two Guvnors). Truman Capote's novella is being adapted for the stage by Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg.

Commenting on the casting, Foster said: "It's a testament to the beauty of Capote's imagination, the extraordinary characters he created and Greenberg's faithful adaptation, that alongside Pixie and Matt, we have assembled such an accomplished company of actors to bring this dazzling play to life."

Breakfast at Tiffany's will begin performances at the Curve Theatre, Leicester on 3 March 2016, before embarking on a UK & Ireland Tour. The 12-week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London's West End will be from 30 June to 17 September 2016.
