West End star Jodie Steele and well known TV presenter Annabel Giles are to join the cast of new British musical, ‘Rehab The Musical’.
They join the previously announced Keith Allen (‘The Comic Strip Presents…’, ‘The Homecoming’), Jonny Labey (BBC ‘EastEnders’, ‘Strictly Ballroom’), Gloria Onitiri (Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Cinderella’, ‘The Bodyguard’) and John Barr (‘Batboy The Musical’, ‘Les Miserables’).
Andy Brady, Dawn Buckland, Marion Campbell, Andrew Patrick-Walker and Phil Sealey complete the cast.
Jodie Steele’s major musical theatre starring roles include Heather Chandler in ‘Heathers’ in the West End and Katherine Howard in ‘Six the Musical’, Sheila in ‘Hair’, Sherrie in ‘Rock of Ages, alternate Elphaba in ‘Wicked’, Carmen Diaz in ‘Fame’ and Margot in ‘Legally Blonde’.
Annabel Giles has been a model, actress and best-selling novelist, but is probably most known as a TV presenter on many shows, such as ITV’s ‘Posh Frocks and New Trousers’ and most recently ITV2’s ‘My Shirley Valentine Summer’, aired in 2018. Annabel guessed a Gotcha! on ‘Noel’s House Party’ and was a contestant on the 13th season of ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’. She has also appeared in two sell-out one-woman shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Annabel also works as a counsellor/psychotherapist in private practice, and is a tutor at Dunamis Counselling College.
‘Rehab The Musical’, a rock-bottom-to-redemption journey of the soul filled with thumpingly memorable songs, premieres at The Playground Theatre 1 – 17 September, 2022. Press night is Wednesday 7 September at 7pm.
