From 11 March 2024, the iconic character of Sally Bowles will be brought to life by Cara Delevingne, marking her stage debut, while the Olivier Award-winning actor Luke Treadaway will step into the shoes of The Emcee.

The pair are set to join the production until 1 June 2024, with the show now booking through to February 2025.

Cara Delevingne said: “There are no words to explain the excitement I have to return home to make my stage debut in such an iconic role. I am so inspired by the brilliant actors who have played Sally in past productions around the world and in this one in the West End. I cannot wait to be a part of this brilliant cast and production.”

Luke Treadaway added: “I can’t wait to become a member of the Kit Kat Club and join this extraordinary production. It’s a huge thrill to be asked to take this on and I’m very excited to get started.”
