Arena Mole

Recommended Posts

One of the most successful stage shows of recent times, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, returns to the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Sunday 9th December 2012 with a new cast and another technological leap forward.

 

Ricky Wilson, fresh from a world tour with the Kaiser Chiefs will take on his first EVER performance role as The Artilleryman originally played by David Essex on Jeff Wayne’s classic recording. It is a new challenge for the rock star who grew up listening to Jeff’s album.Sharing the stage, as Beth, is one of the most in demand talents in modern musical theatre - Kerry Ellis. Having received huge acclaim for her roles in West End hits Wicked and We Will Rock You, Kerry is described as the new “First Lady of the West End.”

 

Following an outstanding performance as the Artilleryman on our 2010 tour, Jason Donovan returns to The War of The Worlds – Alive on Stage as Parson Nathaniel.

I want to go see this, but Dad says it's too expensive and I've seen it twice with the original cast and have the DVD and original album on CD.

We are thrilled to announce that Jason Donovan is set to appear in the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds for The New Generation Tour. Jason returns as Parson Nathaniel, the disturbed holy man driven to insanity by the Martian invasion of earth.

 

West End star Kerry Ellis will play his wife Beth. Also confirmed is Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson in the role of The Artilleryman. Hollywood star Liam Neeson will appear in the new production, for the first time, in the holographic role of The Journalist, taking over from Richard Burton’s iconic narration on the original album, and previous tours.
