With book, music and lyrics by Elliot Davis and James Bourne (a pop singer and writer best known for his work with the bands Son of Dork and Busted), this new production is being directed by Michael Burgen, with choreography by Matt Krzan and musical direction by Bryan Hodgson. It is produced by Sasha Regan for the Union Theatre.
Lewis Bradley, who was a finalist in BBC1's "Any Dream will Do" to find an actor to play Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, will star as Eddie.
The show is set in 1971. "Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he's invented something that could change the world. He's also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary," according to press notes. "Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space - well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Michael and his sci-fi obsessed, social-misfit friends, Lucas, Francis and Marvin are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating - in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit."
The cast also includes Luke Newton as Michael Dork, Holly-Anne Hull as Holly Manson, Jordan Fox as Lucas Lloyd and Matthew Harvey as Francis Wier, as well as Sarah Covey, Sandy Grigelis, Ryan Ridley, Charlie Kendall, Isobel Hathaway, Jennifer Jolly Jamieson, Daniel Parrott, Ben Rawlings, Morgan Scott, James-Lee Harris, Amy Thiroff, Chloe Lindsay, Delycia Belgrave and Miracle Chance.
