Latest West End News

The cast has been revealed ahead of the UK premiere of Yve Blake’s musical Fangirls, which will open at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London on 13th July.

Jasmine Elcock makes her debut in musical theatre as 14-year-old superfan, Edna. Elcock recently graduated from the Central School of Speech and Drama and is currently performing in The Crucible at Sheffield Theatres, having also recently starred in the English Touring Theatre’s production of Macbeth.

Joining Elcock are Mary Malone as Jules,, Miracle Chance as Brianna, Gracie McGonigal as Lily, and Terique Jarrett as Salty.

Eve De Leon Allen joins the company as Dom/Ensemble, Max Gill as Greta/Ensemble, Lena Pattie Jones as Ash/Ensemble in her professional debut, and Nicky Wong Rush as Dancer in their professional debut.

Director Paige Rattray commented on the casting stating: “The greatest joy of Fangirls is always the people in the room. We have created a show that allows us to adapt the roles to people most suited to the spirit of the show. I’m so excited to start work with the new members of our Fangirls family – the talent, charisma, and great energy we’ve seen in auditions over the last months have been so inspiring that it has been hard to make final decisions as we’ve moved closer to rehearsals – it’s always been one of those shows where you wish you could have a cast of thousands.

“This cast is very special. I’m so grateful to Lotte Hines our stunning casting director for all of the work and expertise she’s put in to find these exceptional people, I’m beyond excited to share their talents with our audience.”

Fangirls follows the fortunes of 14-year-old superfan Edna, a misfit, who is madly in love with popstar Harry. When Harry’s band announces plans to include Edna’s hometown of Sydney, Australia in their tour, she knows this could be her only chance to meet him. But exactly how can she manage to get his attention?

Fangirls held open auditions in January, with producers searching specifically for performers without professional representation.
The creative team behind the show features Paige Rattray (director), Yve Blake (book, music, and lyrics), Ebony Williams (choreographer), David Fleischer (set designer), Candida Caldicot (musical director), Jessica Hung Han Yun (lighting designer), Tony Gayle (sound designer), Ash J Woodward (video designer), Zara Stanton (orchestrator, music supervisor, and vocal arranger), and David Muratore (music producer).

 

Booking & Theatre Infor For Fangirls

The Lyric Hammersmith is a medium size venue located on King Street, W6, close to Hammersmith Underground Station, and has a capacity of 586 seats on three levels.

Premium seats in the theatre are primarily located in the centre of the Stalls, along with the front of the Circle which both offer great options for large-scale musical productions, giving you a complete panoramic view of the stage. Seats in the Stalls generally offer great views of the action, due to a good rake in the seating and its proximity to the stage.

Well-priced and cheap seats can be found at the rear of the Stalls, which offer a great overall view of the stage at a reduced price. Sitting in the back of the Circle is also good value for money with clear-view seating from an elevated position. bargain hunters looking for lastminute tickets on a strict budget should look at options in the Upper Circle.
