Full casting announced for Hetty Feather's West End return

Full casting has been announced for Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather which returns to the West End this summer.

Adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves and directed by Sally Cookson, the cast will be lead by Phoebe Thomas who reprises her role as Hetty Feather.

Joining Thomas will be Matt Costain (Jem/Matron Bottomly), Sarah Goddard (Peg/Ida), Nik Howden (Saul), Mark Kane (Gideon) and Nikki Warwick (Madame Adeline). Musicians Seamas H. Carey and Luke Potter complete the company.

The production will run at the Duke of York’s Theatre between 6th August and 6th September. The West End run will form part of a major national tour which begins at Bristol Old Vic in July and continues through 2016, with an extended Christmas run at The Lowry, Salford.

Hetty Feather is published by Random House, and the first in a trilogy of books which includes Sapphire Battersea and Emerald Star – the series has been hugely successful not just in the UK, but also internationally. It is currently being adapted as a new 10 part television series for CBBC, due to be aired later this year.
