Official Summary from AllianceTheatre.org
It’s 1979 in the south London suburb of East Dulwich, and David Starr has just been given the female lead in his high school’s play. The unconventional casting sends shockwaves through David’s small town, first with David and then with his parents, his aunt, and his classmates. Before long, it seems like everybody has an opinion on whether David should go on with the show. Becoming Nancy is a new musical that weaves a story of family bonds, first loves, and the courage it takes to find your own spotlight.
The cast stars Zachary Sayle as David Starr, Matt Hetherington as Eddie Starr, Sally Ann Triplett as Kath Starr, Jessica Vosk as Aunt Val, Stephen Ashfield as Hamish McClarnon, Jake Boyd as Maxie Boswell, and Jasmine Rogers as Francis Bassey.
More cast members include Chelsey Lynn Alfredo, Lizzie Bea, Seth Clayton, Nico DeJesus, Evan Duff, Ian Gallagher Fitzgerald, Jason Goldston, Talya Groves, Caleb Jenson, Nicole Medoro, Gary Milner, Liz Pearce, Luana Psaros, Ricky Schroeder, Tally Sessions, and Paul Schwensen.
