DARIUS Campbell (formerly Danesh), who has previously appeared in Chicago (as Billy Flynn) and Gone with the Wind (Rhett Butler), is returning to the West End to play Warden in From Here To Eternity, which opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre on October 23, 2013, following previews from September 30.

Based on James Jones’ 1951 award-winning novel that inspired the classic film starring Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr, the show features lyrics by multi award-winner Tim Rice, music by newcomer Stuart Brayson and a book by Bill Oakes.

Campbell will star alongside Siubhan Harrison as Lorene, Robert Lonsdale as Prewitt, Ryan Sampson as Maggio and Rebecca Thornhill as Karen.

The cast also includes Keisha Amponsa Banson, Marc Antolin, Julie Armstrong, James Ballanger, John Brannoch, Abigail Climer, Brian Doherty, Jessica Ellen, Dale Evans, Shimi Goodman, Kirby Hughes, Lauren Ingram, Dean John-Wilson, Joshua Lacey, Carolyn Maitland, Nuno Queimado, Lucinda Shaw, Warren Sollars, David Stoller, Rebecca Sutherland, Laura Tyrer, Adam Vaughan, Lauren Varnham, Stephen Webb and Matthew Wesley.

Set on the island of Oahu shortly before the attack on Pearl Harbour and based loosely on Jones’ own experiences of life in the Hawaiian Division’s 27th Infantry, From Here To Eternity is a tale of passion and honour among a group of soldiers.

Directed by Tamara Harvey, From Here To Eternity will have set and costume design by Soutra Gilmour, choreography by Javier de Frutos, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Mick Potter, video design by Jon Driscoll and fight direction by Kate Waters.
