Yes Bill Kenwright has confirmed that the race sequences shall be done with Action Man dolls and Barbie dolls stuck with sellotape or bluetac (whichevers handy to them) onto Scalectrix cars with stagehands either sides pulling the triggers.

:P lol jk! No I haven't heard anything about it. But I sure hope Peter Griffin is in this production...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCgEILnNTmw&sns=em

If the new poster design is anything to go buy this run will stop quicker than the London to Manchester via Milton Keynes service!

I'm hoping to see some faces back in this from the previous 2 tours, as I thought they both have a very strong overall cast.

The website is up on www.kenwright.com now with more dates MUCH better poster and artwork! Theyve left Christmas blank so I hope it will be the Alex in Birmingham! Obviously the costumes and makeup won't be too different to the West End as they are using previous casts photos. Hopefully it wont be as big of a downscale like from West End/Broadway Spamalot to UK Tour Spamalot!

I've never seen it before, I am VERY excited!! I'll be going in Wimbledon.

A lot of amazing people were on the last tour, if they brought even a few back that would be great.

Hi!

There are some names for the tour now (the people posted it on twitter and facebook). The following guys were all in the German Production:

Lothair Eaton - Papa
Samantha Foker - Swing
Kelsey Cobban - Joule
Tristan Crabtree (Adams) - Engine

will maybe join: Kerry Stammers

The producers looked esp. for actors who were in the show before.

And the photos on the website of kenwright.com are all from the current cast in Bochum: Gareth Bretherton - Electra, Marcel Brauneis - Rusty (I don't know what they did to his costume... maybe photoshop so that it looks a bit more like the UK costume), Georgina Hagen - Pearl, Andreas Wolfram - Greaseball, etc...
