GHOST THE MUSICAL (UK Tour) Cast Announcement


Yesterday rehearsals for the 2013 UK Tour of Ghost The Musical began in London and sparked the announcement of the brand new cast.

When Ghost opened in Manchester and subsequently transferred to London, Coronation Street heartthrob Richard Fleeshman (Sam) and Caissie Levy (Molly) received high praise and took the show to Broadway. Sharon D. Clarke (Oda Mae Brown) stayed with the production until it closed in London in October 2012.

For the 2013 UK Tour, Stewart Clarke (Loserville) will be stepping into the role of Sam Wheat, made famous in the film by Patrick Swayze. Molly Jensen will be played by Rebecca Trehearn who understudied the role in London at the Piccadilly Theatre and the coincidently named Wendy Mae Brown (Porgy And Bess) will be the phoney psychic Oda Mae Brown.

David Roberts will play Carl and Stevie Hutchinson joins as the Subway Ghost. Oda Mae's Sisters will be played by Karlene Wray (Clara) and Keisha Atwell (Louise). Reprising his role from the London production Ivan De Freitas will be Willie Lopez.

Ensemble members include Michael Cortez, Bradley Jaden, Luke Wilson, Gregor Stewart, Nick Hayes, Maeve Byrne, Amy West, Kimmy Edwards, Gabriela Garcia and Amy Webb.

Swings are Livvy Evans, Michael Stewart, Robert Knight and Jaye Juliette Elster.

Also revealed is that the set has been redesigned since the Manchester/London production and the tour will feature brand new illusions.

Ghost The Musical makes its Midlands premiere at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre in June.
