GHOST The Musical, which was booking at the Piccadilly Theatre until April 20, 2013, will now close on October 6, 2012.
Previously Posted: Siobhan Dillon (pictured) and Mark Evans are to join the cast of Ghost The Musical to play Molly and Sam in Matthew Warchus’ stage musical version of the Academy Award® winning film.
They will join Sharon D Clarke as Oda Mae Brown and Andrew Langtree as Carl who continue in the roles they originated on stage when the production premiered.
Dillon, who replaces Caissie Levy as Molly, first came to prominence as a finalist in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s first reality TV show How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?
She went on to make her West End debut as Patty in Grease at the Piccadilly Theatre and subsequently toured the UK in Can’t Smile Without You and Cabaret, in which she played Mandy and Sally Bowles respectively.
Last year, she played the role of Vivienne in Legally Blonde The Musical at the Savoy Theatre and she is currently playing Claire in Ex The Musical at the Soho Theatre.
On the radio, Dillon has performed with the BBC Concert Orchestra on Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night.
For the past few years, Siobhan has been songwriting and recording her solo album which has taken her all over the UK, Australia and America.
Evans, who replaces Richard Fleeshman as Sam, has since February been playing the role of Fiyero in the West End production of Wicked.
He has previously been seen on stage as Curly in the recent UK tour of Oklahoma!; the leading role of Troy Bolton in the London production of High School Musical and as Brad Majors in the UK tour of The Rocky Horror Show.
His screen credits include Lake Placid 3 and Dead Hungry.
This year also saw Evans release his debut solo album on Sain Records – The Journey Home, a selection of six English and six Welsh language songs. He also runs West End In Wales, a young person’s theatre initiative, started and funded by Mark over five years ago.
Ghost The Musical opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in June this year and has subsequently been playing to packed houses. It is currently booking until October 13, 2012.
