Kip Gamblin and Prinnie Stevens have joined the Australian premiere of The Bodyguard. They are set to star alongside Australian Idol star and pop singer Paulini Curuenavuli, better known as Paulini, who was previously announced to play the lead role.
The show will begin performances at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre on April 21. It will then play Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre beginning July 19 before moving to Melbourne in August at a yet-to-be-announced theatre. The Australian tour is produced by Michael Harrison, David Ian, and John Frost.
The Bodyguard musical, a stage version of the celebrated 1992 film that starred the late Whitney Houston, features the singer’s music, and a book by Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris. It is based on Lawrence Kasdan’s script, with direction by Thea Sharrock.
The show is currently playing a national tour throughout the U.S., and will next play Chicago’s Oriental Theatre January 31–February 12.
