Casting news

CHARLOTTE Wakefield is replacing the previously announced Lucie Jones in Picture Perfect: A New Musical, which will play four performances at St James Studio – on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, 2014.

Lucie Jones is unable to appear due to an unforeseen scheduling clash.

In a statement the producers said: “We are really sorry to lose Lucie, who has recently been cast in a fantastic upcoming project. It was important to us not to stand in the way of such a career changing project and sincerely wish her the very best.

“Looking forward we are delighted to welcome Charlotte to the Picture Perfect family. Charlotte and Helen [Hobson] have a track record of appearing together in hit shows and I’m sure Picture Perfect: A New Musical is going to be another wonderful success for them.”

Wakefield and Hobson previously starred together as mother and daughter in Mamma Mia! and Maria and Mother Abbess in Regent Park’s Open Air Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Sound of Music.

Wakefield was nominated for an Olivier Award for her West End debut in Spring Awakening and the Evening Standard Award for The Sound of Music.

Conceived and directed by Simon Greiff, Picture Perfect: A New Musical is a contemporary song-cycle musical that explores love and relationships using the songs of award-winning American composer Scott Evan Davis.
