The cast has been announced for a new musical adaptation of hit 1990s film Clueless, ahead of a developmental run at Churchill Theatre Bromley. Performances start on 12 February.

The new musical will star Emma Flynn Bespolka (Little Shop of Horrors) in the role of Cher, alongside Annie Southall (The Wizard of Oz) as Tai, Madison McBride (Full Circle) as Dionne, Solomon Davy (Grease The Musical) as Christian, and Keelan McAuley as Josh.

They are joined by Holly Liburd as Amber, Ian Kelsey as Mel, Simeon Wynne as Murray, Owen Lloyd as Travis, Tom Liggins as Elton, Julie Yammanee as Miss Geist/Millie Stoeger, and Jacqueline Hughes as Lucy.

Part of the ensemble are Jack Bromage, Ella Daini, Ross Dorrington, Ellen Hillman, Blake Jordan, Alessia McDermott, Owen McHugh, and Scarlet Roche.

The production is adapted for the stage by director Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George), with a book by the original film's writer Amy Heckerling. Music is by the multi-platinum singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and lyrics by Grammy winner and three-time Tony nominee Glenn Slater (Sister Act The Musical, Tangled).

The musical follows Cher Horowitz, who is the most popular student in her Beverley Hills high school and renowned for her unique talent at finding love for others. But when she decides to make over her awkward new friend, Tai, with the aim of setting her up with the most handsome boy in school, will she come to see the error of her ways? Clueless is based on Jane Austen’s 1815 novel Emma.

Further cast members, as well as future plans for the musical, are to be announced. The run at Churchill Theatre Bromley ends on 24 February.
