Full cast announced for Footloose ahead of Birmingham dates

Selladoor Worldwide has confirmed the casting for Footloose the Musical and released a first look at rehearsal images.

Following two critically acclaimed tours and huge popular demand, Footloose the Musical is back and better than ever! The musical which was postponed in 2020 is set to burst back onto stage in 2022. The production opens at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on 14th February before embarking on an extensive UK tour

Lucy Munden will join the cast as Ariel alongside Oonagh Cox as Rusty. They join the previously announced cast which includes Jake Quickenden as Willard and Darren Day as Reverend Moore.

Jake first hit our screens in The X Factor in 2012 and again in 2014 where he went through to the live shows. Jake is no stranger to the stage having performed in the title role of Peter Pan at Blackpool Opera House; also touring with the Dreamboys and appearing in Pantomime. He most recently starred in the acclaimed 50th anniversary production of Hair the Musical.

The story follows city boy, Ren who thinks life is bad enough when he's forced to move to a rural backwater in America. But his world comes to a standstill when he arrives at Bomont to find dancing and rock music are banned.

Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, Footloose the Musical sizzles with spirit, fun and the best in UK musical talent. With cutting edge modern choreography, you'll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let's Hear It for The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.

The show plays at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre between the 18th-23rd April. Tickets are on sale now at atgtickets.com/birmingham.
