The cast includes Laurie Brett (EastEnders), Helen Pearson (Hollyoaks), Samantha Seager (Coronation Street), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans, Blood Brothers), Lyn Paul (The New Seekers, Blood Brothers), Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War). They are joined by Liz Carney, Colin R Campbell, Andrew Tuton, Jayne Ashley and Victoria Hay.

Directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, the new production will also feature designs by Gary McCann, lighting by Nick Riching and musical direction by Jordan Alexander.

Produced by Bill Kenwright Ltd (one of four Kenwright shows on tour early next year), the tour kicks off in Bromley on 10 January before visiting Salford, Blackpool, Bradford, York, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Bath, Windsor, Aylesbury, Woking, Norwich and Crawley.
