NEWS: Millie O’Connell & Luke Bayer to star in Soho Cinders at Charing Cross Theatre

Casting has been announced for the new London production of Soho Cinders at Charing Cross Theatre. Olivier nominated Six the Musical star Millie O’Connell will lead the cast alongside Everybody’s Talking About Jamie star Luke Bayer.

Completing the cast is Lewis Asquith, Christopher Coleman, Ewan Gillies, Tori Hargreaves, Natalie Harman and Michaela Stern, with an ensemble cast featuring Jade Bailey, Thomas Ball, Luke Byrne, Ben Darcy, Laura Fulgenzi, Danny Lane, Savannah Reed and Melissa Rose.

Celebrating London’s most colourful district and mixing politics, sex-scandals and true love, Soho Cinders is a deliciously naughty musical update of the Cinderella fairy tale with an infectious score that you’ll be humming long past the stroke of midnight!

When impoverished student Robbie becomes romantically involved with engaged London Mayoral candidate James Prince, his lap-dancing step-sisters become the least of his problems! James and Robbie’s worlds collide forcing them to fight for their own fairy-tale ending in this hilarious, satirical twist on the classic Cinderella story.

Soho Cinders, with Music by George Stiles and Lyrics by Anthony Drewe (the multi award-winning writers of the Olivier award-winning National Theatre hit Honk!, who also created a new score for the international smash-hit Cameron Mackintosh/Disney production of Mary Poppins) with Book by Anthony Drewe and Elliot Davis, will run nine weeks at London’s Charing Cross Theatre from Thursday 24 October to Saturday 21 December, 2019.
