London's Oliver-winning Cabaret revival welcomes several new stars to the Kit Kat Club June 3.

Heartstopper's Rhea Norwood steps into the role of Sally Bowles, while Everybody’s Talking About Jamie's Layton Williams becomes the new Emcee. The two actors succeed Cara Delevingne and Luke Treadaway. (Norwood and Williams are currently scheduled to continue through September 21.)

The company also welcomes Sally Ann Triplett as Fraulein Schneider and Fenton Gray as Herr Schultz, who replace Beverley Klein and Teddy Kempner, respectively.

The production, which recently surpassed 1,000 performances, also features Michael Ahomka-Lindsay as Clifford Bradshaw, Wilf Scolding as Ernst Ludwig, Jessica Kirton as Fraulein Kost/Fritzie, Liv Alexander as Texas, Natalie Chua as Frenchie, Laura Delany as Rosie, Taite-Elliot Drew as Hans, Damon Gould as Victor, El Haq Latief as Helga, Grant Neal as Herman/Max, Hicaro Nicolai as Lulu, and Travis Ross as Bobby.

The cast is completed by Rebecca Lisewski, Ela Lisondra, Nic Myers, Andy Rees, Toby Turpin, and Patrick Wilden. Nic Myers plays the role of Sally Bowles once a week.

The prologue company includes Rachel Benson, Ami Benton, Onyemachi Ejimofor, Joseph Hardy, Liz Kamille, Andrew Linnie, Aine McLoughlin, Jack William Parry, Jazmyn Raikes, Oliver Stockley, and Ena Yamaguchi.

This production of Cabaret opened in December 2021, subsequently winning a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards.
