The 'weight’ is over!
Following the massive success of its first outing, Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends – The Musical comes to Theatre Royal Plymouth, starring West End and ‘Holby City’ TV favourite, Lee Mead. This hugely entertaining musical is based on the hit TV show Fat Friends, which starred James Corden and Ruth Jones.
Created and directed by the brilliant award-winning Kay Mellor, (In the Club, Girlfriends, Band of Gold), whose latest hit series of The Syndicate has just run on BBC ONE and with original music and songs by Nicholas Lloyd Webber, Fat Friends – The Musical reunites our favourite foodie friends as they are put through their Zumba paces at their local slimming club, whilst Kelly fantasies about fitting into the wedding dress of her dreams.
Lee Mead is a much-loved actor on stage and screen. Having won the nation’s hearts when they voted him their Joseph in BBC One’s ‘Any Dream Will Do’, Lee has gone on to star in the West End in Joseph, Legally Blonde and Wicked before establishing himself as a TV favourite on Casualty and then Holby City in the role of ‘Lofty’. Lee and further cast to be announced, look forward to entertaining you in a show that serves up a tasty treat full of hope, humour, love and weight loss, delivers a night full of laughter and encourages us all to Love Who You Are! Fat Friends The Musical is a feel-good night out for everybody and a HUGE hit!
