Leading lady and Coronation Street and Strictly Come Dancing star, Catherine Tyldesley will make her musical theatre debut as Blanche Barrow sharing the role with Hollyoaks and Holby City’s Daisy Wood-Davis at certain venues. They are joined by Eastenders actor Danny Hatchard in his musical theatre debut and Heathers and Newsies star, Alex James-Hatton who will share the role of Clyde Barrow across the tour. For performance dates see listings below and local venue websites.

After wowing audiences in the West End and International Tour of Bat Out of Hell, Katie Tonkinson will play Bonnie Parker.

Sam Ferriday, who has appeared in hit musicals such as Heathers, The Cher Show and Jersey Boys will play the role of Marvin “Buck” Barrow. R&B and Soul singer-songwriter Jaz Ellington, who has appeared on The Voice UK and Eurovision: You Decide, will play the role of The Preacher from 22 Feb – 27 July. Nate Landskroner of Waitress and Heathers will alternate the role of Clyde Barrow at midweek matinee performances – casting for alternate Bonnie Parker will be announced soon.

Additional venues have also been added to the major UK & Ireland Tour including Manchester, Sunderland, Bath, Bradford, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Brighton, High Wycombe, Newcastle, Sheffield, Bromley and Northampton.

The UK & Ireland tour follows hot on the heels of two hell-raising hit seasons in London’s West End at the Arts Theatre and the Garrick Theatre. The eagerly-awaited West End cast album was released in July and is available on all streaming platforms.
