The previously announced John Partridge, Scarlett Strallen, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt and Leigh Zimmerman will be joined by Alice Jane Murray and Marc Leslie, two individuals who will already be familiar with the subject matter of the show, after being selected from 2,000 hopefuls at the highly anticipated musical’s open auditions.
They will be joined in the production by Lucy Adcock, Georgie Ashford, Ed Currie, Frances Dee, Segun Fawole, Harry Francis, Simon Hardwick, Rebecca Herszenhorn, James T Lane, Marc Leslie, Vicki Lee Taylor, Daisy Maywood, Alice Jane Murray, Alastair Postlethwaite, Andy Rees, Adam Salter, Alexzandra Sarmiento, Michael Steedon, Gary Watson, Gary Wood, Rebecca Giocopazzi, Genevieve Nicole and Ashley Nottingham.
Directed by Bob Avian, the musical features a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante with iconic songs including One (Singular Sensations), What I Did For Love, I Can Do That and Hope I Get It.
A Chorus Line will open at the London Palladium following festive spectacular Scrooge The Musical, which ends its run on 12 January.
