Theatre Royal Plymouth announce the full cast for the brand-new production of NHS The Musical by Nick Stimson and Jimmy Jewell.
Stephen Fletcher directs Sabrina Aloueche (Politician), Jordan Castle (Porter), Peter Caulfield (Doctor), Alice Frankham (Jillian), Jimmy Johnston (Arthur), Justina Kehinde (Consultant) and Neil Stewart (Robert).
NHS The Musical runs 17 – 25 September in The Lyric at Theatre Royal Plymouth, with discounted tickets available across the run for NHS staff.
Informed by first-hand accounts from NHS staff, NHS The Musical gets under its skin, and celebrates the people who make its heart beat. Sharper than a scalpel, this fast-paced comedy show takes you from the surgical theatre to musical theatre, pumping with songs, satire, sass – and gas and air. But beware! This beloved institution may be the perfect tonic, but it can also be the bitterest pill. The UK’s largest employer and government’s biggest spender has its own ailments, that just never seem to be cured.
With a combined company of 7 cast and 7 band members live on stage, NHS The Musical will be a rousing celebration of the people who have cared for us and our families for more than 70 years.
Adrian Vinken, CEO of Theatre Royal Plymouth and Executive Producer of NHS The Musical, said today, “We feel so lucky to have secured such a talented ensemble cast for NHS The Musical. Even in the auditions, they brought the show’s comedy and satire to life and reminded me just how fabulous the music and songs are. I can’t wait to see how they develop the show with Stephen over the coming weeks as we build to the premiere in September.”
NHS The Musical is made possible thanks to a grant from the Weston Culture Fund.
NHS The Musical is at Theatre Royal Plymouth 17th to 25th September 2021. Tickets are on sale here.
