Casting news

FURTHER casting has been announced for the national tour of the classic West End and Broadway hit comedy Boeing-Boeing, which opens at Brighton Theatre Royal on September 4, 2019, and visits Richmond Theatre from September 24 to September 28.

Joining previously announced Tom Lister as Bernard and Daniel Casey as Robert are Susie Blake as Bertha and Emily Head as Gretchen, with further casting to be announced soon.

Susie Blake (pictured) is best known for her portrayal of the snobbish TV announcer in Victoria Wood’s As Seen On TV and the role of Bev Unwin in ITV1’s Coronation Street, a role she played between 2003 – 2006 and then again in 2015. She is currently playing Hilary Nicholson in BBC1’s Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Blake’s theatre credits include Madame Morrible in Wicked in the West End and the national tours of Handbagged and Grumpy Old Women.

Emily Head is probably best known as Carli in The Inbetweeners, a part she played in all three series and the first film. She most recently played Rebecca White in ITV1’s Emmerdale. Her theatre credits include Ange in Abigail’s Party and Helen in Coram Boy.

Bernard has managed to keep his three fiancés blissfully unaware of each other – until now. Three Flight Attendants, three different airlines, three different timetables, each perfectly manoeuvred to avoid Bernard’s intricate love life crashing down to earth. But it’s 1965, and Boeing have launched a new, faster aeroplane that’s going to create some serious turbulence, with Bernard’s three fiancés landing unexpectedly and simultaneously!

As the hilarity really starts to take off, can Bernard survive while his long-suffering maid struggles to keep up with the changes and his befuddled friend Robert can’t even remember which stories go with which airline…?
