Friendsical cast announced for upcoming UK tour

Friendsical UK tour cast

The full cast for the upcoming UK tour of parody musical Friendsical has been announced.

Friendsical is written by Miranda Larson, whose credits include Christmasaurus, The Night Pirates and SpongeBob Live.

The UK tour will open at Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham on July 15. It’ll then move on to the Darlington Hippodrome between July 22 and 27.

Described as a “loving parody not to be confused with the Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. series Friends”, a synopsis of Friendsical reads:

When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life… will he end up with his one true love?

Featuring original songs such as (He’s her) Lobster!, Richard’s Moustache and You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention. What could possibly go wrong?

The confirmed cast for Friendsical features Jordan Fox as Joey, Sarah Goggin as Monica, Jamie Lee-Morgan as Ross, Thomas Mitchells as Chandler, Ally Retberg as Phoebe and Charlotte Elisabeth York as Rachel.

Completing the cast are ensemble members Duncan Burt and Rebecca Withers.

Following its opening tour dates, Friendsical will play at the Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe between August 1 and 25.

The tour will then continue, stopping off at Derry, Newcastle, Kingston, Malvern, Blackpool, Chelmsford, Southampton and Croydon.
