Classic Spring and Royal & Derngate today also announce full casting for The Selfish Giant, a new folk opera from multi-award-winning composer, producer and songwriter Guy Chambers.

Sally Bretton plays Lady Chiltern. Sally stars in the long-running BBC1 series Not Going Out, alongside Lee Mack; the new series begins later this week. She also starred in the BBC1 crime drama Death in Paradise. Her stage credits include King Lear at Shakespeare's Globe and her other screen credits include Absolute Power, Green Wing and The Office.

Nathaniel Parker plays Sir Robert Chiltern. Nathaniel recently starred as Henry VIII in the RSC's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies in the West End and on Broadway. His other stage credits include The Audience with Helen Mirren and James Graham's This House in the West End. His screen credits include the title role in the BBC1 series The Inspector Lynley Mysteries.

In The Selfish Giant, Jeff Nicholson will play the Giant. Jeff's recent stage credits include Sweeney Todd (ENO) and Urinetown (Apollo Theatre). He also sang at the 2013 Academy Awards and at the 25th anniversary gala of Les Miserables at the O2. His other credits as a vocalist include the feature films Pirates of the Caribbean, Angels & Demons and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Scott Sutcliffe (The Book of Mormon, Thoroughly Modern Millie), Jacob Fisher (Eugenius!, The Addams Family) and Olly Dobson (Bat Out of Hell, Matilda) all play Boy.

Laila Zaidi (Starlight Express, West Side Story) plays Hail. Rose Shalloo (Fiddler on the Roof, A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer) plays Charlie. Izuka Hoyle, winner of the Stephen Sondheim Society 'Student Performer of the Year' Award last year, plays Little Boy.

Natasha Cottriall and Laura Sillett narrate. Natasha's recent musical credits include Beautiful (Aldwych Theatre) and Into The Woods (Royal Exchange, Manchester). Laura is currently appearing in A Night at the Oscars (Upstairs at the Gatehouse).

The Selfish Giant is adapted and composed by Guy Chambers and will be directed by Bill Buckhurst.

It will be designed by Simon Kenny (Sweeney Todd) and choreographed by Imogen Knight (Amadeus).
