Louise Redknapp to guest star in musical parody Friendsical

Louise Redknapp will appear as a special guest star in the new Friends musical parody Friendsical.

Redknapp will join the cast for performances at Southampton’s MAST Mayflower Studios which runs from 5-7 September 2022. The show will then embark on a UK tour with other guest stars to be announced.

Louise Redknapp will make a special cameo appearance and perform in musical number ‘Richard’s Moustache’. As an acclaimed recording artist of albums ‘Naked’, ‘Woman in Me’ and as a finalist on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016, Louise is no stranger to taking the stage and delighting an audience. She appeared on stage in Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical and in Cabaret.

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be a special guest for Friendsical… I’ve always been such a huge Friends fan as you may know and now finally get a chance to be part of the show (sort of!), I’ve watched the show for many years so this is super exciting for me,” said Louise Redknapp.

This is the first special guest announcement of many to be announced soon for the rest of the Friendsical UK tour.

Friendsical is an original, unique parody musical inspired by the hugely popular and beloved US TV show Friends. Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe have been with us for nearly 30 years. They are still there for us, and this time a stage show musical parody crams all 10 seasons and 236 episodes into just over two hours of nostalgic fun.

Featuring original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention. 

Writer-director Miranda Larson says, “From day one of airing, I have been a huge fan of the TV Show, and it has been a dream to stage and celebrate this iconic series. There is something for everyone in Friendsical, from the well-known references to ones that only mega fans (like me) will get. Oh and if you are new to “Friends”, then it’s a fun musical love story that can be easily followed!” 

Playing everyone’s favourite friends are Sario Solomon as Joey, Sarah Michelle-Kelly as Monica, Nelson Bettencourt as Ross, Tim Edwards as Chandler, Ally Retberg as Phoebe, Amelia Kinu Muus as Rachel, Olivia Williamson as Hot Girl/Ensemble and Tanveer Singh Devgun as Gunther/Male Ensemble.

The creative team includes Miranda Larson (book and lyrics), Barrie Bignold (music), Darren Carnall (choreography), Michael Vinsen (associate choreographer), Anthony Lamble (set and costume ), Dominic Jeffrey (lighting), Olly Steel (sound) and Nicholas Hockaday (casting).

Friendsical is produced by Brooke Mauchline Productions Ltd in association with Assembly Festival.
