Stepping Out cast change as Anna-Jane Casey steps in for Tamzin Outhwaite
The comedy has begun previews at the Vaudeville Theatre
As the West End production of Stepping Out begins previews at the Vaudeville Theatre it has been announced that Tamzin Outhwaite has been forced to temporarily 'step out' from the production with a stress fracture of her foot. Stepping into her tap shoes throughout her recovery period will be Anna-Jane Casey who takes on the role of Mavis from next week, until which time Katie Verner stars in the role.
Anna-Jane Casey joins sister Natalie Casey, Amanda Holden, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Nicola Stephenson in the production which began previews on 1 March 2017 with an opening night set for 14 March 2017 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Amanda Holden said of the news: “It is sad to lose Tamzin. It is ironic and, of course, in keeping with the theme of the show in many ways. However we can assure everyone who comes a fun and entertaining evening and we can’t wait to get started with the previews. We look forward to Tamzin returning very soon.”
Richard Harris' heart-warming comedy charts the lives of seven women and one man attempting to tap their troubles away at a weekly dancing class led by their ever patient teacher, Mavis. Directed by Maria Friedman the production toured the UK last year ahead of a West End run. The full cast also includes Judith Barker, Jessica-Alice McCluskey, Sandra Marvin and Dominic Rowan with Janet Behan, Suzy Bloom, Emma Hook, Marcia Mantack and Nick Warnford.
Presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions and the James Grant Group, it is designed by Robert Jones and choreographed by Tim Jackson with lighting design by Peter Mumford, sound design by Gregory Clarke and orchestrations by Christopher Walker.
Stepping Out tickets are now on sale.
