KINKY BOOTS TOUR

kinky boots tourDirector and Choreographer Jerry Mitchell's hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots has been running at the Adelphi Theatre in London's West End and on Broadway. It is now due to go on a UK tour next autumn.

Featuring a book by Harvey Fierstein and music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, it is inspired by a true story and based on the 2005 Miramax film of the same name written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth. Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price who has reluctantly inherited his father's Northampton shoe factory.

Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be.

As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discovers that when you change your mind, you can change the world.

First casting news is that Joel Harper-Jackson (Simon in Jesus Christ Superstar, Regent's Park) will take on the role of shoemaker Charlie Pricee opposite Paula Lane (best known as Kylie Platt from Coronation Street) as Lauren and Callum Francis as drag queen Lola (he understudied the role in London and played the lead in the Australian production ) who will launch the tour in September and continue on the road to December 15th when Kayi Ushe (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) will step into his fabulous shoes. Demitri Lampra (The Wind in the Willows) will play Don, Adam Price (Hairspray) will play George and Helen Ternent (Jersey Boys) will play Nicola.

Completing the cast are Angels: Connor Collins, John Dempsey (Referee), Damon Gould, Joshua Lovell, Chileshe Mondelle and  Toyan Thomas-Browne
Ensemble: Demitri Lampra (Don), Adam Price (George) Helen Ternent (Nicola), Lizzie Bea (Pat), Joshua St Clair (Harry), Daniel Conway (Richard Bailey), Niki Evans (Trish), Scarlet Gabriel (Milan Stage Manager), Charlie Allen, Shaun Dalton, Portia Harry, Alfie Parker, Fred Smiley (Simon Senior) and  Andy Watkins (Mr Price)
