Based on Sue Townsend's book of the same name, the show has book and lyrics by Jake Brunger, with music and lyrics by Pippa Cleary. It will be directed by Luke Sheppard.
The cast includes Rosemary Ashe (Grandma), Cameron Blakely (Mr. Lucas), Amy Booth-Steel (Miss Elf/Doreen Slater/Mrs. Lucas), Neil Ditt (George Mole), Kirsty Hoiles (Pauline Mole) and Neil Salvage (Bert Baxter).
The title role of Adrian will be shared by Lewis Andrews, Sebastian Croft, Joel Fossard-Jones and Toby Murray.

In a press statement, Sheppard commented, "Finding the right actors to step into the shoes of Sue Townsend's iconic characters has been an invigorating and rewarding task. Adrian Mole, along with his family and friends, have been treasured by the nation for decades. After an extensive search, which included auditioning over 400 children, we've found a team of grown-ups and almost-grown-ups who can't wait to start rediscovering these roles for a new generation."
The creative team will also include Tim Jackson (choreographer), Paul Herbert (musical arranger), Mark Collins (musical director), Tom Rogers (designer), Paul Groothius (sound designer), Howard Hudson (lighting designer) and Sally Wilson (costume supervisor).
