Time for vinyl to make a comeback. Full casting has been announced for The Turbine Theatre’s first musical production High Fidelity with Oliver Ormson leading the ensemble as record shop owner, Rob.

Joining Oliver Ormson are Carl Au (Dick), Robbie Durham (Barry), Rosie Fletcher (Anna), Joshua Dever (Neil Young/Bruce Springsteen), Shanay Holmes (Laura), Eleanor Kane (Marie), Jessica Lee (Ensemble), Bobbie Little (Liz), Lauran Rae (Ensemble) and Robert Tripolino (Ian)

The UK premiere of the new musical comedy High Fidelity, based on the acclaimed British novel by Nick Hornby is the second production in Paul Taylor-Mills’ inaugural season at the Turbine Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Tom Jackson Greaves, the first musical to open at the new Battersea Power Station based theatre, runs from 21 October to 7 December 2019, with press night on 1 November 2019.

Rob is the thirty-something owner of a London record shop who’s mastered the art of finding rare vinyl and losing girlfriends. Laura just dumped him, and Rob is totally moving on. Hopefully. Well, there’s a chance it could still work out. Could Laura actually be “the one?”

High Fidelity is the second production to run at the newly opened Turbine Theatre, and follows the theatre’s critically acclaimed debut production of Harvey Fierstein’s groundbreaking play, Torch Song.
