A handful of stage and screen veterans have been tapped to appear in the first professional U.K. revival of Mame, starring the previously announced Tracie Bennett in the title role.

Among those joining the Olivier winner will be Harriet Thorpe (Absolutely Fabulous, The Brittas Empire) as Vera and fellow Olivier winner Tim Flavin (On Your Toes, My One and Only) as Beauregard.

The production, directed and choreographed by Nick Winston, will begin September 28 at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester before going on to play Royal & Derngate in Southampton and Salisbury Playhouse in January. (Flavin will only appear in the Manchester bow.)

The company will also include Chase Brown as Older Patrick, Grace Chapman as Gloria Upson, Lauren Chia as Pegeen Ryan, Soo Drouet as Mother Burnside/Madame Branislowski, Jessie May as Agnes Gooch, Hugh Osborne as Dwight Babcock, Lewis Rae as M Lindsay Woolsey, Pippa Winslow as Mrs Upson/Sally Cato, Benjamin Wong as Ito and Liam Wrate as Junior Babcock. Harry Cross, Issac Lancel-Watkinson and Lachlan White will alternate the role of Young Patrick. Rounding out the cast are Jabari Braham, Aston Newman Hannington and India Thornton.

The staging is the first major U.K. production of the Jerry Herman, Jerome Lawrence, and Robert Edwin Lee musical since its 1969 West End premiere.
