Full Cast Announced For Kay Mellor's BAND OF GOLD UK Tour

Band of Gold - the premiere stage adaptation of Kay Mellor's multi award-winning ITV series, that was one of the most watched shows in television history - today announces that Laurie Brett, Gaynor Faye, Kieron Richardson, Shayne Ward, Sacha Parkinson and Andrew Dunn will star in the production and be joined by Emma Osman, Olwen May, Steve Garti, Joe Mallalieu, Mark Sheals, Shareesa Valentine, Virginia Byron and Marc Parry . At the same time, it can also be confirmed that following its World Premiere at Leeds Grand Theatre on Thursday 28 November 2019, Band of Gold will play a ten-week UK Tour in 2020, opening at Nottingham Theatre Royal on Tuesday 14 January 2020.

Band of Gold was the ground-breaking crime drama that captivated over 15 million viewers each week when it aired on ITV. Starring (amongst others) Geraldine James, Cathy Tyson, Barbara Dickson and Samantha Morton, the ground-breaking crime drama captivated the nation, with bookmakers taking bets on the identity of the killer before the final episode!

This new, murderous but at times heart-warming and humorous stage adaptation, tells the story of a group of women - Carol, Rose, Anita and a young mother, Gina - as they battle to survive whilst working in a notorious red-light district with a killer on the loose. When one of their colleagues is murdered, they need to find the killer before they strike again. Band of Gold on stage will feature a star-studded cast including Gaynor Faye, (Emmerdale, Playing the Field, Calendar Girls), Laurie Brett, (EastEnders, Waterloo Road, Les Miserables), Kieron Richardson, (Hollyoaks, Heatbeat), Shayne Ward, (Coronation Street, Rock Of Ages, X Factor Winner), Sacha Parkinson (Mr Selfridge, The Mill) and Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies, The Full Monty).

Following the unprecedented sell-out success of Fat Friends The Musical, producer Josh Andrews and Kay Mellor have teamed up again for Band of Gold, to be directed by Mellor, with set design by Janet Bird, costume by Yvonne Milnes, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Mic Pool and music by Hal Lindes. The production will run from Thursday 28 November to Saturday 14 December 2019 at Leeds Grand Theatre, before embarking on the 2020 Tour.
