As BWW previously reported, the world premiere of GROUNDHOG DAY has been delayed because of the 'technical requirements' involved in the production. Previews are now postponed until July 15th with an opening night of August 16th.

The musical will star Carlyss Peer as Rita Hanson, alongside Andy Karl in the role of Phil Connors. Eugene McCoy plays cameraman Larry, and the ensemble cast includes Leo Andrew, David Birch, Ste Clough, Roger Dipper, Georgina Hagen, Kieran Jae, Julie Jupp,Andrew Langtree, Vicki Lee Taylor, Emma Lindars, Antonio Magro, Carolyn Maitland, Kirsty Malpass, Lisa Mathieson, Jenny O'Leary, Leanne Pinder, Mark Pollard, Damien Poole, Jack Shalloo, Andrew Spillett and Spencer Stafford.

Groundhog Day is the story of Phil Connors, a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in the isolated small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, when he finds himself caught in a time loop, forced to repeat the same day again and again...and again. As each day plays out exactly the same as before, Phil becomes increasingly despondent, but is there a lesson to be learnt through his experiences, will he ever unlock the secret and break the cycle?

The new musical is created by the team behind hit musical Matilda - Old Vic artistic director Matthew Warchus, composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell ­- alongside writer Danny Rubin. It's based on the 1993 Bill Murray-starring Columbia Pictures film, which had a screenplay by Rubin and Harold Ramis.
