The classic musical Salad Days, which plays at the Union Theatre from 16 August - 9 September 2017, has released a set of rehearsal shots of the cast in action.
63 years after its first London production, Salad Days returns in an exciting revamp of the much-loved classical musical. Reimagined for the Union Theatre, Bryan Hodgson’s new production is the highlight of this year’s off West-End season running from 16 August to 9 September 2017 at the Union Theatre.
Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds’ timeless musical is an absolute romp of polite naughtiness and saucy encounters, that endeavours to put a smile on your face and a tap in your toes. Its energetic and peppy score features songs such as ‘We Said We Wouldn’t Look Back’, ‘Look At Me, I’m Dancing’ and ‘We’re Looking For A Piano’.
The cast will be led by Lowri Hamer as Jane and Laurie Denman as Tim. Salad Days is directed by Bryan Hodgson, with associate direction by Samuel Hopkins. They will be joined by Maeve Byrne as Asphynxia, Darrie Gardner as Mrs Dawes, James Gulliford as Nigel, Emma Lloyd as Rowena, Lewis McBean as Tom/Fosdyke, Sophie Millett as Lady Raeburn, Karl Moffatt as Uncle Clam, Tom Norman as Boot, Stephen Patrick as The Inspector, Francesca Pim as Fiona, Jacob Seickell as Troppo, Tom Self as The Tramp and Ashlee Young as Marguerite.
Choreography is by Joanne McShane, musical direction by Elliot Styche, set design by Catherine Morgan and lighting design by Jack Weir. Sasha Regan is producing for the Union Theatre, with Ben Dewynter co-producing.
For the full 1950s ‘picnic in the park’ Salad Days experience, there will be special limited-availability front row ‘PICNIC’ seats from which audiences can enjoy front-row action from cushions and blankets spread on the floor.
