Casting for Rock Musical Bare

Full casting has been announced for cult rock musical Bare which is transferring  to Greenwich Theatre from Wednesday 9th to Saturday 27th October following a sold out run at the Union Theatre earlier this year.

Ross William Wild and Michael Vinsen will return to the roles of Jason and Peter, alongside Jodie Steele as Ivy, Molly Stewartas Nadia, Luke Baker as Matt, Nadine Cox as Claire, Christopher Dickens as Priest, Gary Lee Netley as Lucas, Lauren Rae as Tanya, Jemma Geanaus as Kyra, Tash Holway as Diane, Ashley Andrews as Rory, David Albury as Zack and Adam Bailey as Alan. The cast also includes Ashley Gilmour, Daniel Hope, Charlotte Jeffery, Annie Kitchen and Alison Pope.

A contemporary rock musical, BARE is the electrifying story of a group of students navigating their way through a journey of teenage self-discovery, wrestling with identity, sexuality, and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. Provocative, raw, and unyielding in its exploration of how today's generation navigates the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood, BARE examines the consequences of baring a soul, or hiding it from those who matter most. With a pulsating rock score, BARE is a powerful story of youth and rebellion you will never forget.

 BARE was first staged at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles in 2000, before opening Off-Broadway at the American Theatre of Actors in 2004. Bare has since received over 100 productions in cities all over the world including Toronto, Sydney, and returning to New York at New World Stages in 2012. BARE received its European Premiere in a brand new production at London’s Union Theatre in April 2013.

BARE is directed by Paul Taylor-Mills, who’s credits include “Little Shop of Horrors”, “White Bear” (4 Off West End Award nominations including Best Director), “A Clockwork Orange” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” at the Lost Theatre, the European Premiere of “My Big Gay Italian Wedding” in sold-out seasons Above The Stag, in Edinburgh and at Greenwich Theatre, “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” (Off West End Award nomination for Best Director) and “Steel Pier” (6 Off West End Award nominations, WhatsOnStage nomination for Best Off West End Production) at the Union Theatre and “Rent” at Greenwich Theatre (Winner of Best Regional Production at the BroadwayWorld Awards).
