Amanda Holden has landed a new West End role, where she’ll be starring alongside a host of other famous faces.
The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge has been confirmed to be starring as Vera in a new production of the comedy ‘Stepping Out’, which will also star Tracy-Ann Oberman, Angela Griffin, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson.
‘Stepping Out’ tells the story of a group of seven women and one man, who bond after attending the same weekly dance class together.
After the show first debuted on the West End in 1984, a film adaptation starring Julie Walters and Liza Minnelli was released in 1991.
This will mark Amanda’s return to the West End after five years away, having last appeared on stage as Princess Fiona in a production of ‘Shrek The Musical’ in 2011.
She was previously nominated for an Olivier Award, thanks to her star turn in ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’, back in 2004.
Her ‘Stepping Out’ co-star Tracy-Ann Oberman has plenty of theatre experience with both the RSC and National Theatre, in addition to her role as Chrissy in ‘EastEnders’.
Meanwhile, Angela Griffin is best known for her role in ‘Coronation Street’ and more recently, for her lead part in the ITV comedy-drama series ‘Brief Encounters’.
‘Stepping Out’ is to tour the UK from next month, with dates scheduled in Bath, Richmond, Cambridge and Chichester, before it arrives at London’s Vaudeville Theatre, kicking off on 1 March 2017.
