Let’s raise a glass and say cheers to the new cast as producers have announced and named the new personnel who will take over in the uplifting musical The Choir of Man at the Arts Theatre when it returns to the West End to begin previews on October 1st ahead of an official opening night on October 13th. Tickets to The Choir of Man are available to book now both online and through the box office.
The Choir of Man is a glorious celebration of the power of togetherness and community, all set in a traditional British pub. The party atmosphere is helped along with a catalogue of well known songs by artists such as Guns ‘N’ Roses, Adele, Avicii, Sia and many more, as well as featuring a working bar on stage.
The new cast of The Choir of Man includes Levi Tyrell-Johnson, Owen Bolton, Michael Baxter, Lucas Koch, Jordan Oliver, Matt Beveridge, Sam Ebenezer, Lemuel Knights, Matt Nalton, Ben Norris, Mark Irwin, Gavin Ryan, and Matt Thorpe.
Commenting on the show ‘s return to the West End, cast member Ben Norris said, “Watching this show grow from the charmingly ramshackle Edinburgh Fringe gamble it started life as 5 years ago, into the Olivier-nominated cult hit it has become has been one of the greatest privileges and surprises of my career so far, and one of the greatest joys. As a male voice choir, we wanted to make a show that brings joy to people. Above all, we wanted to make a show that puts an arm around people, of all genders, and invites them to either forget their troubles for an evening or to share them. Sometimes it’s literally life-saving.”
