Natalie Casey will join the previously announced Amanda Holden, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson in heart-warming comedy Stepping Out when it opens in London this Spring.
Natalie is well known to TV audiences as playing Carol Groves in Hollyoaks and Donna Henshaw in Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet of Crisps. West End theatre credits include Fame, Legally Blonde, Well and Abigail’s Party with other stage work including 9 To 5, Hobson’s Choice, The Wedding Singer, The Vagina Monologues and Oklahoma!.
Further cast in the West End production include Judith Barker, Jessica-Alice McCluskey, Sandra Marvin and Dominic Rowan, as well as Janet Behan, Suzy Bloom, Emma Hook, Marcia Mantack, Katie Verner and Nick Warnford.
Stepping Out charts the lives of seven women and one man attempting to tap their troubles away at a weekly dancing class. Initially all thumbs and left feet, the group is just getting to grips with the basics when they are asked to take part in a charity gala. Over the course of several months we meet the group, and all of them have a story to tell.
The uplifting comedy originally premiered in the West End in 1984 starring Barbara Ferris and Marcia Warren, winning the prestigious Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, and enjoying extended runs both in the West End and on Broadway. Stepping Out has also been made into a musical, which became a film in 1991, starring Julie Walters, Liza Minnelli and Shelley Winters.
Directed by Maria Friedman, the brand new staging of Richard Harris’s award-winning play toured UK venues last year, and will open at West End’s Vaudeville Theatre this Spring, with preview performances from 1 March 2017 and opening night for press on 14 March 2017.
