big the musical

Big the Musical is to transfer to the Dominion Theatre in the West End for a limited 9 week period from 10th  September to 2nd November prior to White Christmas which opens there on 16th November.

Based on the hit 1988 Broadway film of the same name starring Tom Hanks, the musical  has songs by David Shire and Richard Maltby and book by John Wiedman. It follows Josh Baskin who is twelve-years-old and hates being little, until one night at the carnival the mysterious Zoltar machine grants his wish to be big. Now trapped in an adult’s body and alone in New York, he innocently tries to find his way around a grown-up world where it’s all work and no play. But whilst everyone around him tries to act their age, Josh just can’t help being himself. Maybe he’s going to end up teaching the real adults a thing or two….

Directed and choreographed by Morgan Young, the West End show will again star  Jay McGuinness as Josh - who originated the part in Plymouth -  with Wendi Peters as Mrs Baskin (Josh's mother), Kimberley Walsh as Susan Lawrence (who Josh falls for) and Matthew Kelly as George MacMillan the owner of the toy company where Josh gets a job. Ex Wanted boy band member McGuinness won Strictly Come Dancing in 2015 and has been appearing in Rip It Up at the Garrick Theatre. Joining them will be Lori Haley Fox as Mrs Kopecki/Miss Watson and Edward Handoll as Paul Seymour, with Harrison Dadswell, Jamie O’Connor and Jake Simon sharing the role of Young Josh and Jobe Hart, Austen Phelan and Theo Wilkinson sharing the role of Billy. 

 Also in the cast will be Charlie Bull, Colin Burnicle, Christie-Lee Crosson, Vicki Davids, Alex Fobbester, Leanne Garretty, Stuart Hickey, Matt Holland, Tash Holway, Ross McLaren, Richard Murphy, Eddie Myles, Katharine Pearson, Anton Fosh, Gemma Fuller, Gary Murphy and Katy Osborne. There will be two teams of children in the musical, made up from Olufemi Alaka, Coco Cousin-Brown, Asher Ezeguiel, Ellis Griffiths, Imogen Law Hing Choy, Noah Leggott, Amaya Lucas, Cassia McCarthy, Ophelia Parsons, Bailey Razdan, Lucinda Wicks and Chanel Zinyemba.

The production, which originally ran at Theatre Royal Plymouth, will have design and costume design by Simon Higlett, associate choreography by Helen Rymer, musical supervision by Stuart Morley, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, video design by Ian Galloway, and sound design by Terry Jardine and Avgoustos Psillas.
