There’s going to be a temporary change of cast over at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, as Paul Whitehouse is taking a short break from Only Fools and Horses The Musical from Monday 29 July. Currently dazzling audiences in the beloved role of Grandad, Paul is taking a well-earned break for a few months.

Actor Andy Mace (who’s currently playing Mike The Barman in the show) will play Grandad from 29 July until Paul returns. No stranger to a West End stage, Andy has also appeared in Disney’s The Lion King and Wicked, and has previously understudied the role of Grandad when Paul was unavailable to perform.

Also starring Tom Bennett as Del Boy and Ryan Hutton as Rodney, this unique showstopper features cherished material from the award-winning TV series. Featuring 20 hilarious new songs (including contributions from Chas n Dave), the show brings many of hugely loveable characters from the hit show to the stage, including Raquel, Cassandra, Trigger, Boycie, Marlene, Denzil, Mickey Pearce, Mike The Barman and the dreaded Driscoll Brothers.

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