Tamzin Outhwaite withdraws from West End show due to injury

Tamzin Outhwaite has temporarliy withdrawn from the West End production of Stepping Out due to injury.

Outhwaite was diagnosed with a stress fracture in her foot just prior to the first preview performance at the Vaudeville Theatre. The role of Mavis will played by Anna-Jane Casey (West Side Story, Chicago and Billy Elliot), who will temporarily join the cast from next week, prior to which the role will be played by Katie Verner.

Anna-Jane Casey joins sister Natalie Casey (as bubbly Sylvia) and the previously announced Amanda Holden (as perfectionist Vera), Tracy-Ann Oberman (as the mouthy Maxine), and Nicola Stephenson (as shy Dorothy).

Amanda Holden said: “It is sad to lose Tamzin. It is ironic and, of course, in keeping with the theme of the show in many ways. However we can assure everyone who comes a fun and entertaining evening and we can’t wait to get started with the previews. We look forward to Tamzin returning very soon.”
