Curve's Artistic Director Nikolai Foster will reunite with two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Stephen Mear to bring this classic winter musical to the stage.

The full cast includes Michael Anderson as Marty, Delycia Belgrave (LEGALLY BLONDE) as Rita, Chantel Bellew (SCROOGE THE MUSICAL) as Loretta, Luke Byrne (LA CAGE AUX FOLLES) as Mark, Sophie Camble (CHESS) as Gale, Roger Dipper (SINGIN' IN THE RAIN) as Ralph Sheldrake, Nicholas Duncan (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF) as Jim, Davide Fienauri (ME AND MY GIRL) as Scooter, Nia Jermin (SCROOGE THE MUSICAL) as Gloria, Robbie McMillan (CHESS) as Dean, Jo Morris (SHOES) as Connie, Sam Murphy (GREASE) as Mike, Alex Tranter (EUGENIUS) as Jimmy, Sion Tudor Owen (WEST SIDE STORY) as Ezekiel Foster, Alexandra Waite-Roberts (GUYS AND DOLLS) as Tessie and Bleu Woodward (KINKY BOOTS) as Rhoda.

Four young local girls, Ellie Copping, Lucie Ellard, Macy Grundy and Georgia Stewart will also share the role of Susan Waverly, the General’s granddaughter, throughout the production’s run. They will also be joined by the Curve Young Company, who will play the roles of Soldiers and their wives.

Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander.
