Photo Feature: Ronan Keating rehearses for West End debut in Once

Producers of Once have released official images of Ronan Keating rehearsing for his West End debut in the show. Check out the pics below (click image to enlarge).

The Boyzone star joins the musical as Guy from Monday 17th November, taking over from David Hunter. He stars opposite Jill Winternitz as Girl. 

Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, Once bursts onto the stage with a musical celebration of love, friendship and Irish music performed by cast of actor/musicians. A chance encounter between a girl and guy from different worlds but with a shared love of music and songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, unexpected romance.

The West End production of Once opened in April 2013 and went on to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. The Australian production of Once opened at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne earlier this week. The show also runs on Broadway until 4th January 2015.

The US tour, now in its second year, continues and later this year will make a visit to Japan. A Toronto production will open in February next year and the first non-English language production will open in Seoul, South Korea in December 2015. Also in development are productions in Sweden, Brazil, Holland, Greece, The Czech Republic, Thailand, Ireland, along with a Japanese language production.
