FANS of Friends, the hugely popular television programme, will be pleased to learn that full casting has now been announced for its eagerly awaited world stage premiere which calls into the county next month.

Playing some of the favourite friends in this new parody musical will be Jordan Fox (Joey), Sarah Goggin (Monica), Jamie Lee-Morgan (Ross), Thomas Mitchells (Chandler), Ally Retberg (Phoebe) and Charlotte Elisabeth York (Rachel). They will be joined by Duncan Burt (Ensemble) and Rebecca Withers (Ensemble).

Described as an hilarious show, it has been written by Miranda Larson and is currently on an extensive UK tour marking the tv show’s 25th anniversary - a tour including a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

It will head for Malvern’s Festival Theatre for a run from September 16 to 21.

The show features a typical Friends storyline which sees Ross’ wife leave him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life... will he end up with his one true love?

Featuring original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention.

What could possibly go wrong?
