Full casting announced for West End transfer of The Pajama Game

Full casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Chichester Festival Theatre's production of The Pajama Game, directed by Richard Eyre.

Peter Polycarpou and Colin Stinton will  reprise their roles as Vernon Hines and Hasler, with Gary Wilmot taking over the role of Vernon Hines from 2nd June. They join the previously announced Joanna Riding and Michael Xavier

The Pajama Game opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre on 13th May (previews from 2nd May) and runs until 13th September 2014.

In 1950s America, love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin (Michael Xavier) falls head-over-heels for firebrand Union rep Babe Williams (Joanna Riding). Sparks fly when the employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cents raise, leaving Sid and Babe deliciously at odds as the temperature rises. . . Will love, eventually, conquer all?

The cast also features: Alexis Owen Hobbs (Gladys), Claire Machin (Mabel), SiĆ“n Lloyd (Max), Jennie Dale (Mae), Sharon Wattis (Poopsie), Keisha Amponsa Banson (Brenda), Lauren Varnham (Charlene), Jo Morris (Rita), Nolan Frederick (Charley), Richard Jones (Frank), Dan Burton (Earl) and James O’Connell (Joe). 

The Chichester Festival Theatre production of The Pajama Game is produced in the West End by Joseph Smith and John Brant, Old Vic Productions, Gavin Kalin and Stephen McGill.
