The filmed production, in collaboration with Steam Motion and Sound, is led by Ailsa Davidson (as Veronica Sawyer), Simon Gordon (as Jason “J.D” Dean), Maddison Firth (as Heather Chandler), Vivian Panka (as Heather Duke) and Teleri Hughes (as Heather McNamara), alongside Vicki Lee Taylor (as Ms Fleming/Veronica’s Mom), Mhairi Angus (as Martha Dunnstock), Liam Doyle (as Kurt Kelly), Rory Phelan (as Ram Sweeney), Oliver Brooks (as Kurt’s Dad/Big Bud Dean/Coach Ripper), Andy Brady (as Ram’s Dad/Principle Gowan/Veronica’s Dad), Benjamin Karran (as Beleaguered Geek), Chris Parkinson (as Hipster Dork/Officer McCord), Jermaine Woods (as Peppy Stud/Officer Milner), Eleanor Morrison Halliday (as Young Republicanette), Mary-Jean Caldwell (as Stoner Chick), Hannah Lowther (as New Wave Party Girl) and May Tether (as Drama Club Drama Queen).

Steam Motion and Sound are also currently working on screen captures of Waitress, Bonnie and Clyde (recorded at Theatre Royal Drury Lane) and The Prince of Egypt.
