Full casting confirmed for The War of The Worlds at the Dominion Theatre

Full casting has been announced for Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of The Worlds which opens at the Dominion Theatre on 17th February (previews from 8th February) and runs until 30th April 2016. 

Produced by Bill Kenwright, The War of The Worlds transfers to London following many years of world arena tours. The iconic score is played live and conducted on stage by Jeff Wayne. Check out rehearsal images below (click image to enlarge).

As previously announced, the musical will star Jimmy Nail as Parson Nathaniel, Daniel Bedingfield as The Artilleryman, Heidi Range as Beth, Michael Praed as George Herbert, Madalena Alberto as Carrie and David Essex as The Voice Of Humanity. Liam Neeson will appear as The Journalist as a 3D hologram.

Completing the cast are Will Barratt, Charlie Bull, Antony Hansen, Chris Jenkins, Grace McKee, Simon Shorten, Ethan Bradshaw, Tash Holway, Matt Holland, Jack Mitchell, Marios Nicolaides and Jodie Steele.

Both shocking and thrilling the world by exposing the flaws and hypocrisy of Victorian society with his futuristic thinking and alternate views, Wells unlocked a door into the future that took his readers on a unique adventure far away from the social constraints of 19th Century England.
