Take a first look at the WhatsOnStage Award-winning Bonnie and Clyde – which has just embarked on its first UK and Ireland tour.

Danny Hatchard from EastEnders and Alex James-Hatton, known for his performances in Heathers and Newsies, alternate in the role of Clyde Barrow during the tour. Katie Tonkinson (Bat Out of Hell) portrays Bonnie Parker.

Catherine Tyldesley (Coronation Street and Strictly Come Dancing), makes her musical theatre debut as Blanche Barrow. She shares this role with Daisy Wood-Davis, best known for her work in Hollyoaks and Holby City, at specific venues.

Sam Ferriday (Heathers, The Cher Show, and Jersey Boys) takes on the character of Marvin “Buck” Barrow. R&B and soul artist Jaz Ellington, known for his appearances on The Voice UK and Eurovision: You Decide, plays The Preacher until 27 July. Nate Landskroner, with credits in Waitress and Heathers, alternates the role of Clyde Barrow during midweek matinee performances.

AJ Lewis (Mandela, Mrs Doubtfire) shares the role of the Preacher at certain venues and Daniel Reid-Walters (Girl from the North Country, The Railway Children) plays the role of Ted Hinton.

Rounding out the cast are Taryn Sudding as Cumie Barrow/Governor Miriam Ferguson, Alexander Evans as Henry Barrow/Deputy Johnson/ensemble, Andrew Berlin as Captain Frank Hamer/ensemble, James Mateo-Salt as Sheriff Schmid/ensemble, Callum Henderson as Bud/Archie/ensemble, Jasmine Beel as Stella/Emma Parker/ensemble, Oonagh Cox as Eleanore/on-stage swing, Michael Cortez as off-stage swing/resident director and Olivia Lallo as off-stage swing/dance captain.

It follows two successful seasons in London’s West End at the Arts Theatre and the Garrick Theatre. The West End cast album, released last July, is available on all major streaming platforms.

Bonnie and Clyde narrates the tale of two small-town individuals who rose to become iconic and bloody figures in American folklore. The musical features music by Tony nominee Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Tony and Oscar winner Don Black, and a book by Emmy Award nominee Ivan Menchell.

The production is directed and choreographed by Nick Winston, with set and costume design by Philip Witcomb, musical supervision by Katy Richardson, associate musical supervision by Nick Barstow, original arrangements and orchestrations by John McDaniel, additional arrangements and orchestrations by Jen Green, lighting design by Zoe Spurr, sound design by Tom Marshall, video design by Nina Dunn, wig design by Darren Ware, and casting by Jim Arnold CDG.
