Building on a successful tradition of new work created by the RSC for family audiences at Christmas, the company will present The Magician’s Elephant, a musical adaptation of Kate DiCamillo’s novel by Nancy Harris and Marc Teitler, directed by Sarah Tipple.
It’s a pretty exciting combination: Robbie Williams, Guy Chambers and Mark Ravenhill all creating a brand new musical adaptation of David Walliams’ novel The Boy In The Dress for the RSC in November 2019, directed by Gregory Doran. But now we know some of the casting too with Rufus Hound, Irvine Iqbal, Natasha Lewis and Forbes Masson all taking lead roles in the much-anticipated production.
There will be high expectations for the RSC’s world premiere musical production of The Boy in the Dress, adapted from David Walliams’ first children’s novel. But if anyone can pull it off, Mark Ravenhill, Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers surely have a pretty good chance. Will it be the next Matilda? Time will tell…
The actress will portray Joan Littlewood in a brand new musical by Sam Kenyon, opening at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 22 June 2018.
