Ross Noble joins cast of The Producers 2015 UK Tour

It has been announced that Ross Noble (pictured right) will make his musical theatre debut in the 2015 UK Tour of The Producers. He joins the previously announced Jason Manford and Louie Spence.

Noble joins the cast of The Producers from Monday 18th May as Franz Liebkind; the short fused, carrier pigeon keeping, former Nazi, brought on board by Max Bialystok and Leo Bloom (Jason Manford) to help them in their plot to put on the worst musical of all time.

Ross Noble has been performing as a stand-up comedian since the age of 15. He has unveiled a new sell-out show every year for the last 15 years. He joins The Producers fresh from his UK and Australian tour Tangentleman.

Noble said: "I am very excited about appearing in The Producers. I am a huge fan of the show and for anyone who loves comedy, the chance to perform the work of Mel Brooks is amazing!"

Jason Manford said: "Ross is one of the most exciting and inventive comedians the UK has produced, he is one of those rare breed of comics who simply has funny bones. It's a genius bit of casting!"

The UK Tour begins performances at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley on Friday 6th March 2015. Louie Spence plays Carmen Ghia until Saturday 2nd May. Further star casting to be announced.

Based on Mel Brooks’ beloved Academy Award winning movie, The Producers is described as "a hilarious musical comedy". The show famously ran in the West End and on Broadway, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards.
