Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden is to star in a revival of Richard Harris’ 1984 play Stepping Out.
Richard Harris’ play about a group of women and a man who attend a dance class in a North London church hall will be directed by Maria Friedman and star Amanda Holden alongside Angela Griffin and Nicola Stephenson.
The production will be staged at the Theatre Royal Bath from 12-22 October 2016 before further dates at Richmond Theatre and Cambridge Arts Theatre, prior to a West End transfer.
Director Friedman said: ‘It’s about having the courage to put one foot in front of the other, and Amanda and her friends are all up for it and it speaks to them after 30 years. Stepping Out will be Friedman’s third time directing after Merrily We Roll Along in 2013 and High Society in 2015.
Holden’s previous theatre credits include the West End productions of Thoroughly Modern Millie and Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical.
Stepping Out is a co-production between Theatre Royal Bath Productions and the James Grant Group.
