02 Oct LOOK AHEAD: Memphis at the Shaftesbury Theatre

New images of the cast of Memphis have been released, marking one week until the opening of previews to the West End production. Starring Killian Donnelly (The Commitments) and Beverley Knight (The Bodyguard), Memphis is inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee. It follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ who wants to change the world, and a club singer who is ready for her big break.

“David Bryan evokes the powerhouse funk of James Brown, the hot guitar riffs of Chuck Berry, the smooth harmonies of the Temptations and the silken, bouncy pop of the great girl groups of the period” Charles Isleworth, New York Times.

Full casting features Rolan Bell, Tyrone Huntley, Claire Machin, Jason Pennycooke and Mark Roper, and also includes Keisha Atwell, Arielle Campbell, Mark Carroll, Joseph Davenport, Momar Diagne, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Kimmy Edwards, Hillary Elk, Laura Ellis, Charlotte Gorton, Benjamin Harrold, Waylon Jacobs, Rachel John, Dean Maynard, Devon McKenzie-Smith, Tim Newman, Simon Ray-Harvey, Jon Robyns, Ashley Rumble, Kyle Seeley, Helen Siveter, Dawnita Smith and Alex Thomas.

Dates: Previews from 9th October, opens 23rd October 2014.
