Cast includes Adam Bayjou, Daniella Gibb, Ross Hatt, Ashleigh Jones, Laura Main, Stephen McGlynn, Mark McManus, Olivia O’Shea, Charleen Qwaye, Susan Travers, Tegwen Tucker.
Charts the greatest of Herman’s songs, from the popular Hello, Dolly! to the lesser known songs of Miss Spectacular and Dear World.
