Casting has been announced for the forthcoming, re-worked new production of cult musical Eugenius! at the Turbine Theatre in London.
The talented young cast is led by Elliott Evans (Kiln) as Eugene, Jaina Brock-Patel (Six The Musical) as Janey, and James Hameed (Be More Chill) as Feris.
Other cast in the show include Naomi Alade (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical) as Eugenie (Swing), Dominic Andersen (What’s New Pussycat?) as Gerhard/Tough Man/Dad, Joseph Beach (Ortistic Augasm) as Evil Lord Hector, Lara Denning (Matilda) as Lex, Louis Doran (Bugsy Malone) as Eugenie (Swing), Maddison Firth (Heathers The Musical) as Carrie/Super-Hot Lady, Sebastian Harwood (Treason The Musical In Concert) as Eugenie (Swing) and Rhys Taylor (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) as Theo/Space Diva.
This high-energy, 80s-inspired British musical is written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, and centres on geeky schoolboy called Eugene, who dreams of getting his fictional superhero made into a Hollywood film and of finding true love.
The show has a pulsating soundtrack, and is an hilarious love letter to the iconic movies, comic books and nostalgia of the 1980’s.
This new production is directed by Hannah Chissick, with musical direction by Nick Pinchbeck, Set and lighting design by Andrew Exeter, sound design by Alistair Penman, video by Andy Walton, and choreography by Aaron Renfree.
Eugenius! plays at the Turbine Theatre from 17 March to 28 May 2023.
