Waitress will serve up some of the top talent in leading roles when the hit musical arrives in Aberdeen.
Busted’s Matt Willis and former West End star Lucie Jones were announced for the cast when the show arrives at His Majesty’s Theater in November.
Matt has forged a solid career on stage appearing in A Christmas Carol and Wicked and will star in the production as Dr. Pomatter.
Lucie, who plays Jenna, rose to prominence competing on the X Factor and has since continued to appear in Legally Blonde and Les Misérables.
Sandra Marvin of Emmerdale and Evelyn Hoskins of Casualty round out the stellar lineup as Becky and Dawn for the show, which will arrive on Tuesday, November 23 for a week.
Ben Torrie, Director of Programming and Creative Projects at Aberdeen Performing Arts, said: “It’s so nice for us to be able to bring another strong cast to Aberdeen. Lucie and Matt have performed at His Majesty’s Theater before and have been very successful.
“Waitress is already such a popular musical, we are sure this news will make it even more exciting for our audiences.”
With music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, Waitress tells the story of pie expert Jenna, who dreams of finding happiness when a new doctor comes to town. As life gets more complicated, she relies on the friendship and support of Becky and Dawn.
