The cast is complete for the Chichester Festival Theatre's revival of The Pajama Game, featuring previously announced stars Hadley Fraser and Joanna Riding as Sid and Babe, respectively. Directed by Richard Eyre, the production will run April 22 through June 8 at the Minerva Theatre. Opening night is set for April 29.
In addition to Fraser and Riding, The Pajama Game will feature Jenna Boyd as Mae, Dan Burton as Earl, Ricardo Coke-Thomas as Joe, Amy Griffiths as Martha, Richard Jones as Frank, Claire Machin as Mabel, Eugene McCoy as Prez and Jo Morris as Rita.
Featuring a score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory where workers' demands for a seven-and-a-half cents raise go ignored. Soon enough, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.
The full ensemble of The Pajama Game will also include Sophia Nomvete as Brenda, Landi Oshinowo as Poopsie, Alexis Owen Hobbs as Gladys, Peter Polycarpou as Vernon Hines, Carl Sanderson as Charley, John Stacey as Max Ganzenlicker, Colin Stinton as Hasler/Pop and Lauren Varnham as Charlene.
The Pajama Game features choreography by Stephen Mear, set design by Tim Hatley, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Paul Groothuis and music direction by Gareth Valentine.
