The full cast has been announced for forthcoming Take That-inspired musical, The Band, which is set to arrive at Leeds Grand Theatre in March 2018.
AJ Bentley, Nick Carsberg, Yazdan Qafouri, Sario Solomon and Curtis T Johns from Leeds – collectively known as 5 to 5 – were winners of BBC’s Let it Shine and will play the famous boy band of the 1990s.
Joining the lineup is Katy Clayton, who appeared in Casualty, Shameless, Waterloo Road and Where the Heart Is. Alison Fitzjohn, who was Assistant Director and performer in David Walliams’s Gangsta Granny, has also been confirmed for the musical.
The Band is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boy band. For five 16-year-old friends in 1992, The Band is everything. 25 years on, the now 40-something women, are reunited as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.
