Kym Marsh to star as Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians tour

Kym Marsh will play the iconic villain Cruella de Vil in the UK & Ireland tour of 101 Dalmatians The Musical .

Direct from its London premiere, this new touring production opens at the New Wimbledon Theatre on 22 June 2024 and continues its major UK & Ireland tour through to January 2025.

Marsh, best known for TV series Coronation Street and Waterloo Road, is scheduled to appear in the tour when it launches at the New Wimbledon Theatre and when the production visits Birmingham, Manchester, Belfast, Newcastle, Southend, Dublin, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Woking, Cardiff, Southampton, Aberdeen and York. Casting for other dates will be announced.

Kym Marsh said: “I’m over the moon to be joining the cast of 101 Dalmatians playing the iconic Cruella De Vil, has there ever been a more fabulous baddie?! Obviously she’s a million miles away from me in real life – and my dogs are very glad about that – but being able to bring to life my take on this renowned character is a real treat. Douglas and Johnny have written this brilliant new musical filled with songs I’m already finding myself humming under my breath. The 101 Dalmatians story spans generations and I’m sure young and old alike will absolutely love this production.”

This classic canine caper is brought to life on stage with spectacular puppetry, show-stopping choreography, hilarious songs and irresistible puppies!
