Full casting has been announced for the new production of The Rink at Southwark Playhouse, the first London revival of the musical in 20 years.

Joining Caroline O'Connor as Anna and Gemma Sutton as Angel in the show are Stewart Clarke as Dino, Ross Dawes as Lino, Michael Lin as Lucky, Elander Moore as Benny, Ben Redfern as Lenny and Jason Winter as Tony.

The new production is directed by Adam Lenson and choreographed by Fabian Aloise, with musical direction by Joe Bunker, set design by Bec Chippendale, costume design by Libby Todd, lighting design by Matt Daw, sound design by Mike Thacker and casting by Jacob Sparrow.

Kander and Ebb's piece has a book by Terrence McNally, and follows the relationship between mother Anna and daughter Angel as they hope to save a roller-skating rink on the Eastern seaboard in the USA.
