Award-winning actress Rebel Wilson has joined the West End cast of Guys and Dolls for a strictly limited 8 weeks only at the Phoenix Theatre to play the part of Miss Adelaide until Sunday 21 August 2016. Guys and Dolls also announced the opening of a new booking period, with tickets now available until 7 January 2017.
Rebel Wilson said:
‘A lot of people who know me from my more recent film work have no idea how much theatre has influenced my life. I saw my first musical at age 14, a show called 42ND STREET, after one of my family’s dogs had unsuccessfully auditioned to be in it. It blew me away and I’ve loved musical theatre ever since. Training at the Australian Theatre for Young People gave me the opportunity to perform onstage in 8 productions ranging from new Australian musicals to classic plays. I then went on to write and perform in my own productions before being snapped up to do screen work. I am delighted to be making my West End debut in GUYS & DOLLS and to be playing such an iconic role as ‘Miss Adelaide’ is truly an honour. Hopefully I crush it…. but you’ll have to come and see me to find out!’
