Will Tuckett's immersive Nutcracker moves venue

Further casting has also been announced for the ballet

From L to R. Ludovic Ondiviela as Nutcracker Prince, Adam Cooper as Uncle Drosselmeyer and Ana Enriquez as Clara.

Will Tuckett's upcoming immersive production of the Nutcracker will no longer run in Wembley.

After announcing the run in June this year at Wembley Park, the show will now take place at The Printworks London in Canada Water.

Adam Cooper is to star in the ballet in the role of Uncle Drosselmeyer. Joining him will be Ana Enriquez, Ludovic Ondiviela, Max Westwell, Daniela Norman (Swan Lake) and Paris Fitzpatrick.

Other members of the company include David Allwood, Laura Caldow, João Carolino, Chris Agius Darmanin, Katie Deacon, Connor Dowling, Amy Drew, Nolan Edwards, Paul Farrell, Robin Gladwin, Ayesha Griffiths, Cate Gunner, Genevieve Heron, Bianca Hopkins, Richard Johnston, Sophie Judd, Jenny Legg, Joe Miller, Tamzen Moulding, Alex Newton, Gemma Payne, Cris Penfold, Matt Petty, Laura Robinson, Simone Sault, Owen Thorne, Tommy Wade-Smith, Caroline Warwick-Oliver and Daisy West.

The Nutcracker opens on 30 November and will allow audiences to explore the world of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet directly with the story and characters.

Producer Bob Watts said "I am delighted to be returning to The Printworks London; I had a brilliant experience putting on Secret Cinema: Star Wars there last year. It is fast-gaining a reputation as a unique and adaptable creative venue – having recently hosted Mulberry's London Fashion Week show too – and it will make a brilliant home for Will Tuckett's Nutcracker".

He added: "Those who have already bought tickets for the production will be contacted over the coming days regarding the change in venue".

Will Tuckett's The Nutcracker will run at The Printworks London from 30 November to 8 January.
