Full Casting Revealed for Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark

RGM Productions have announced the full casting for the West End run of Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark. It is a new family-friendly musical inspired by Alice in Wonderland‘s classic poem of the same title.

Will Bryant will play as the Baker and the Bandersnatch, Ben Galpin as the Bellman, Jordan Leigh-Harris as Boy, Simon Turner as the Banker, and Polly Smith as the Butcher.

The Hunting of the Snark follows a riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers who go on a quest to catch the mythical Snark. This impossible voyage of an improbable crew is brought to life in this sparkling musical comedy adventure for 4- to 94-year-olds.

The musical made its world premiere in Cardiff at the Sherman Theatre in 2016. Then, the production played at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Now, The Hunting of the Snark is moving to Vaudeville Theatre on 28th July 2017, with previews from 26th July 2017 and booking until 2nd September.
