Casting news

OUT OF Joint, Cast, Doncaster and Kiln Theatre, London have announced that Bill Ward (as Bant) will lead the cast of Richard Cameron’s much-celebrated play The Glee Club. The production, which embarks on a national tour on February 28, will play at the Kiln Theatre from June 4 to June 27, 2020.

Bill Ward’s stage credits include Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (as Hugo/Loco Chanelle), Viva Forever, Million Dollar Quartet and Spamalot in the West End, Shakespeare In Love at Bath Theatre Royal and on tour, Look Back in Anger at Northern Stage and The Lady From The Sea at The Royal Exchange.

His television roles include Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street and James Barton in Emmerdale.

In the summer of ’62, five hard-working, hard-drinking Doncaster miners, together with their church organist accompanist, are frantically preparing to wow the audience of a local gala concert with their sweet tones. This is The Glee Club, a group of unlikely singers, who though being established in the working men’s clubs, aren’t exactly known for being at the vanguard of a musical revolution. But both Britain and music are about to change … and so too are the lives of these six men. Will anything ever be the same again?

Richard Cameron’s raucous comedy about friendship and divided loyalty in a rough and rugged world, features the romantic songs of the 1950’s performed live on stage.

The Glee Club is directed by Kate Wasserberg, Artistic Director of Out of Joint.
