Big The Musical is getting bigger as more stars join the cast of the upcoming production.

This morning it was announced that Wendi Peters, Kimberley Walsh and Matthew Kelly will be joining The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness as Mrs Baskin, Susan Lawrence and George MacMillan respectively.

Based on the classic 80s film starring Tom Hanks, Big The Musical will tell the story of 12-year-old Josh Baskin who gets more than he bargained for when he suddenly becomes an adult after his wish to be big is granted by a mysterious Zoltar machine. But can a 12-year-old really make it in the business world? How about his love life?

Wendi Peters is best known for her role as Cilla Battersby Brown in Coronation Street as well as her work in theatre including her turns in The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, Grumpy Old Women Live 2 – Chin Up Britain, Vagina Monologues, and White Christmas.

Kimberley Walsh rose to prominence in the record-breaking girl band Girls Aloud. As well as her TV and music career, she’s starred in the West End as Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical, Jovie in Elf The Musical, and joined Denise Van Outen at Cadogan Hall in Sweet Charity.

Matthew Kelly’s many television credits include the award-winning thriller Cold Blood, Benidorm, Bleak House and Moving On, although he is probably best known for presenting You Bet! and Stars In Their Eyes.

Big The Musical is opening at the Dominion Theatre from 6 September to 2 November 2019, with a Gala Night in aid of Make-A-Wish on Tuesday 17 September. If you want to see Jay McGuiness before that, you can catch him in Rip It Up – The 60s at the Garrick Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
