Full casting for Kiss Me, Kate announced

Sheffield Theatres today announces the cast for this year’s Christmas musical, Kiss Me, Kate, in the Crucible theatre from Friday 7 December – Saturday 12 January 2019.

It’s opening night for feuding divorcees Fred and Lilli as they star in The Taming of the Shrew. But as the curtain rises, gambling, gangsters and mistaken identity conspire to create chaos.

Directed by Paul Foster (Annie Get Your Gun), this riotous musical comedy features some of Cole Porter’s most iconic music: Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and So In Love.

The cast features Edward Baker-Duly (The King and I) as Fred and, returning face to the Crucible, Rebecca Lock (Oliver!) as Lilli.

The cast is completed by: Delroy Atkinson (My Family), Cindy Belliot (Sweet Charity), John Conroy (Me and my Girl, Crucible Theatre), Dafydd Emyr (Doctor Who), Dex Lee (Five Guys Named Moe), Ross McLaren (Top Hat), Joel Montague (Fat Friends), Adam Rhys-Charles (Anything Goes, Crucible Theatre), Amy Ellen Richardson (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Matthew Whennell-Clark (My Fair Lady, Crucible Theatre) and Layton Williams (Hairspray). With ensemble members including: Jessica Buckby, Ronan Burns, Louis Gaunt, Ruby Greenwood, Tash Holway (also Assistant Choreographer and Dance Captain), Jennifer Louise Jones, Bobbie Little, Simon Oskarsson, Clancy Ryan and Emmanuele N’Zuzi.

Kiss Me, Kate runs at the Crucible Theatre from Friday 7 December – Saturday 12 January 2019.
