Crazy For You

It has been announced today that Charlotte Wakefield will play ‘Polly’ in the national tour of the Watermill Theatre’s acclaimed production of “CRAZY FOR YOU”. Charlotte joins the previously announced Tom Chambers as ‘Bobby’ and Caroline Flack as ‘Irene’. ”CRAZY FOR YOU” opens at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth on 17 August 2017.

Charlotte Wakefield made her West End debut as Wendla in “Spring Awakening”, for which she was nominated for an Olivier Award. She played ‘Maria’ in the critically acclaimed production of “The Sound of Music” at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre receiving nominations for Best Actress in a Musical at both the Evening Standard and Olivier Awards. Her other theatre credits include Sophie in “Mamma Mia!” in the West End, Truly Scrumptious in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and Laurey in “Oklahoma!”, both on national tour.

The cast is completed by Arthur Boan, Daniel Bolton, Hollie Cassar, Neil Ditt, Kate-Anne Fenton, Cristopher Fry, Stacey Ghent, Matthew James Hinchcliffe, Kieran Kuypers, Kate Milner-Evans, Emma Jane Morton, Kate Robson-Stuart, Ned Rudkins-Stow, Seren Sandham-Davies and Mark Sangster.

High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, “CRAZY FOR YOU” is the ultimate feel-good musical with a fabulous score from the Gershwin brothers’ songbook. Mistaken identities, plot twists, heartbreak, happiness and a wealth of memorable tunes, including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Embraceable You, all feature in this exhilarating celebration of the great Broadway musicals.
