Louise Dearman to return to Guys & Dolls UK tour

Louise Dearman has announced that she will return to the Guys and Dolls UK tour.

The star was originally announced to be playing Miss Adelaide until 20th April 2016, but she has now confirmed that she will return to the production on 7th June when the show opens in Glasgow. Dearman will complete the rest of the tour which concludes in Woking on 30th July 2016 (she will not perform on 2nd, 15th or 16th July due to other commitments).

Dearman previously understudied both Miss Adelaide and Sarah Brown in the 2006 West End production of Guys and Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre, before taking over as Sarah Brown for the 2007 UK tour.
