Sinatra at the London Palladium announces cast and crew
The upcoming production of Sinatra at the London Palladium which begins performances at the London Palladium on 10 July 2015 for a limited season to 10 October 2015, with an official press night on 20 July 2015, has announced details of the creative team and cast.
It will be produced by Karl Sydow, with direction by David Gilmore, design by Ray Winkler, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe and choreography by Glenn Wilkinson and Jacquie Biggs. Musical supervision will be by Gareth Valentine, and the live 24 piece orchestra will be conducted by Richard John.
The cast of dancers will include: Alistair Postlethwaite, Amy Hollins, Anabel Kutay, Ashley Nottingham, Aston Newman Hannington, Bryony Laura Whitfield, Charis O'Connor, Faye Best, Francis Haugen, Gemma Whitelam, James Revell, Jamie Firth, Liam Paul Jennings, Lucy Banfield, Matt Holland, Niall Swords, Nicola Coates, Rahcel Ensor, Christopher Black and Aaron James.
The production will mark the 100 year anniversary since the birth of Frank Sinatra, and will take place at one of London's most iconic performance venues and one which has long been associated with the performer, since his London debut in 1950.
Described as a "multi-media show", it has the support and endorsement of the Sinatra family and is produced in association with Frank Sinatra Enterprises. It combines ultra-rare and original master recordings of Frank Sinatra with cutting edge technology and never before seen performance footage, all accompanied by a 24 piece orchestra and a company of 20 dancers and singers.
Nancy Sinatra said of the news:
"The Palladium show will be as close as we can get to a live Frank Sinatra concert. Using technology, his wonderful voice, state of the art sound and all of the images, the audiences will understand the magic of the man and why he was the legend, the icon, the brilliant musician that everyone who did see him live actually remembers..."
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
