Casting news

CASTING has been announced for the UK premiere of award-winning musical comedy Altar Boyz, which plays at Greenwich Theatre for a strictly limited run of 14 performances – from Friday, October 3 to Saturday, October 18, 2014.

Playing band members Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham will be Liam Doyle, Jonny Fines, Jamie-Ray Hartshorne, Faisal Khodabukus and Alex Jordan-Mills.

Liam Doyle (pictured) is currently starring as Fiyero in Wicked (UK Tour). His other recent credits include Link Larkin in Hairspray (UK Tour) and Troy in High School Musical.

Jonny Fines’ credits include Lift (Soho Theatre), Avenue Q (UK Tour) and The Sound of Music (UK Tour).

Jamie-Ray Hartshorne has appeared in the premiere of new musical The Prodigals (Belgrade Theatre) and The History Boys (National Theatre).

Faisal Khodabukus’ recent credits include I Can’t Sing! (London Palladium), Dirty Dancing (UK Tour) and La Cage Aux Folles (Playhouse Theatre).

Alex Jordan-Mills played Billy in the 2013 revival of Taboo (Brixton Clubhouse) and, most recently, Nick Piazza in Fame (UK Tour).

Altar Boyz is about a fictitious boy-band on the last night of their Raise the Praise tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs – Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham – trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act – including lyrics like Girl You Make Me Wanna Wait and Jesus Called Me On My Cell Phone – worked wonders on the bingo hall circuit, but when fate brings them to New York, will the boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple?
