This production marks Smith’s musical theatre debut. He best known for playing Doctor Who, but boasts previous theatre credits including The History Boys, That Face and Swimming with Sharks.
Also starring in the production is former X Factor contestant Lucie Jones, Jonathan Bailey - fresh from his stint in the National Theatre’s Othello, and Susannah Fielding, who recently starred in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
