News: Gina Beck And Michael Simkins Join The Cast Of Guys & Dolls

Guys & Dolls, the multi-award winning immersive production, announced today that Gina Beck (Matilda, The Sound Of Music, Show Boat, Wicked, Phantom Of The Opera, Les Misérables) and Michael Simkins (John Gabriel Borkman; Backstairs Billy; The Unfriend; Fracked!; Yes, Prime Minister; MAMMA MIA!) will join the cast from the 2nd September 2024.

Gina Beck will take over from Celinde Schoenmaker as the role of Sarah Brown and Michael will be taking over the role of Arvide Abernathy from Niall Buggy.  

Gina Beck said: “I’ve dreamt of playing this role and singing this beautiful score for so long I can’t actually believe I’m going to get to do it, and in such an incredible production. I hope I can at least half fill the shoes of the sensational Celinde Schoenmaker who created the role in this beautiful revival. “If I were a gate I’d be swiiiingiiing!!!””

Michael Simkins said: “I am thrilled to bits to be working at the Bridge Theatre again, and even more thrilled to be joining this sensational show, having seen it in January and been utterly blown away by it. The words I used afterwards to describe it to my friends and family (all of whom I insisted must see the production without delay)  was ‘transformative’ –  fresh as paint, wonderfully uplifting, and utterly irresistible.”

They are joining Owain Arthur (The History Boys; One Man, Two Guvnors; The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) playing Nathan Detroit, George Ioannides (An Officer and a Gentleman; Annie; MAMMA MIA!) playing Sky Masterson, Timmika Ramsay (Moulin Rouge!; Cinderella) playing Miss Adelaide, and Jonathan Andrew Hume (Come From Away; nominated for Best British Actor in a Musical at the Black British Theatre Awards) playing Nicely-Nicely Johnson.

Guys & Dolls features an incredible supporting cast including Cornelius Clarke as Lieutenant Brannigan, Cameron Johnson as Big Jule, TJ Lloyd as Rusty Charlie, Ryan Pidgen as Benny Southstreet, Tori Scott as General Cartwright, and Dashaun Vegas as Harry the Horse.

The cast also include Iroy Abesamis, Katie Bradley, Tanisha-Mae Brown, Filippo Coffano, Eamonn Cox, Kamilla Fernandes, Alex Given, Lucie Horsfall, Dominic Lamb, Siân Nathaniel-James, Saffi Needham, Sophie Pourret, James Revell, Nathan Rigg, Pierce Rogan, Samuel Routley, Charlotte Scott (Co-Dance Captain), Hollie Jane Stephens and Dale White (Dance Captain, Fight Captain).
