Dear Evan Hansen New Victoria Theatre, Woking Tickets

Description

THE OLIVIER, TONY® & GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING BEST MUSICAL

Meet Evan: an anxious high school kid who wants nothing more than to fit in. The thing is, on his way to fitting in, he didn’t tell the whole truth. And now must give up on a life he never dreamt he’d have. As events spiral and the truth comes out, Evan faces a reckoning with himself and everyone around him.

Ryan Kopel (Newsies) will play the iconic role of Evan Hansen, alongside Lauren Conroy (Into The Woods) as Zoe Murphy and Alice Fearn (Wicked, Come From Away) as Evan’s mum, Heidi.

They will be joined by Helen Anker (Mamma Mia!) as Cynthia Murphy, Richard Hurst (The Lion King) as Larry Murphy, Killian Thomas Lefevre (Bat Out Of Hell) as Connor Murphy, Tom Dickerson (Heathers) as Jared Kleinman and Vivian Panka (9 to 5 the Musical) as Alana Beck.

The show collaborated with TikTok during the audition process, inviting those interested in being cast in the production to upload a video singing any number from the show. Over 2000 videos were submitted, 36 TikTok users were invited to in-person auditions and Sonny Monaghan was cast in the ensemble, and as alternate Evan (performing the role twice a week, at every matinee performance).

This brand new production of Dear Evan Hansen is the first in the UK to feature an ensemble. The ensemble will consist of Lara Beth-Sas, Will Forgrave, Daniel Forrester, Jessica Lim, Sonny Monaghan and Shakira Simpson.

Packed with some of the biggest musical theatre songs of the last decade, Dear Evan Hansen has a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Oscar-winning composers for The Greatest Showman), book by Steven Levenson and more awards than can be listed here. Well ok, we’ll mention a few: its Tony® Award for BEST MUSICAL, Olivier Award for BEST NEW MUSICAL, Grammy® Award for BEST MUSICAL THEATER SCORE…no big deal but the list goes on!

With direction by Adam Penford (Artistic Director at Nottingham Playhouse), this brand-new production marks the first time that the Broadway and West End phenomenon will tour the UK & Ireland. So wherever you are, #YouWillBeFound, with the Dear Evan Hansen tour coming to a theatre near you from Autumn 2024.
