As I've posted above, it's Charlie Ruhrmund who was on the first UK tour.

Saw the tour over the weekend, it was a real joy to hear Adrian's Run and tell that again, he sounded superb.

Thought it all round much better than the first tour, especially the penny, and the choreography was as tight as I've ever seen it.

I was there Saturday afternoon at the 200th performance - just as great as usual.  Was great to finally see Adrian Hansel as Seaweed, he was fantastic - his voice is spectacular.  I'd also like to mention Daniel Stockton who was brilliant as Edna - my favourite of the 3 Ednas I've seen.  The rest of the cast were great too, particularly Lauren Hood, Luke Striffler and Sandra Marvin.

So Mark Benton is going to be on Strictly. I assume this means he will be leaving/ has already left and there'll be a new Edna?

Not necessarily - the tour finishes this month and Strictly doesn't start properly until beginning of October.  He'll probably miss a couple of shows in Edinburgh but should be able to finish the tour.

Ah of course! I'm going to Norwich on 28th and had forgotten I was going on the final night of the tour. I forgot there was a couple of weeks after the first ep of Strictly before it starts properly.

Is Mark Benton still performing as Edna in the tour, or has he left already for Strictly? I'm going on Sat and booked mainly because I wanted to see him.

A friend in the cast uploaded some photos to facebook from the latest press night, and Mark Benton was in 1 or 2, so I guess he may still be doing it! :)
Somebody crowd me with love, somebody force me to care.
Somebody make me come through, I'll always be there as frightened as you of being alive.

I'd imagine it'll be Daniel Stockton as Edna on Saturday - I've seen him and Mark and I preferred Daniel - he was a fabulous Edna.
