Final casting is announced for the world premiere of Club Mex, a part-immersive, part-musical clubbing experience, at the Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester, from Thursday 17 January – Sunday 10 February 2019.
Club Mex is the second new musical from Global Musicals, one of the producers of critically acclaimed SIX that is currently on UK tour and returns to the Arts Theatre in January 2019 for an open-ended West End run.
In Club Mex you are on the dancefloor in the heart of the action, joining Mel and her two best mates as they experience the highs, lows and hangovers of Cancun in a heart-warming coming-of-age comedy. Club Mex has a script penned by Tamar Broadbent, one of the UK’s most exciting emerging female stand-up comedians, and an infectious, original musical score by John-Victor that fuses pop, dance and musical theatre.
Jade Johnson who initially auditioned via Instagram will play bride-to-be Mel who embarks on her hen-do with best friends Tiff – Alison Arnopp and Lou – Emma Louise Hoey. Things don’t quite go as planned when they meet Club Reps Antonio – Alvaro Flores and Josh – Jeremy Sartori, who is making his professional debut having just graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, and Mel’s future husband, Graham, played by Bradley Connor decides to join the party. Ensemble/covers are Jonathan Cordin and Jessica Shaw.
