I know but its booking till November, and if I was to close in November it wouldn't really be worth recasting for such a short amount of time surely? I just thought if they were going to extend the booking surely they would have done it by now? I'm just wondering

I know of at least one other cast member leaving for another show - so I think it's going to be a proper cast change.

Leanne is leaving the show in September. The new contracts are for longer than just two months so they're clearly planning to/looking to extend past November.
It's not looking to be a very big cast change though.

Yayy :D :D that's good! I hope Jodie and Simon are staying! Going again next Saturday (the 3rd of Aug) I'm so excited! Hope to go again after that too, may struggle to persuade my parents to take me a  third time, however there seems to be quite a few fans of the show at work, maybe I can get one of them to come with me!

I'm with Sophie, even i was told on Tim's last Drew show it wasn't shaping up to be a big cast change. I got told the new contracts are on the table so it clear they want to extend there time at the Garrick

I saw RoA for the first time yesterday and totally enjoyed it. Simon kept picking on my friend and was hilarious. The only downside was being in the front row, meaning I could hardly see what was going on at the back of the stage. Loved it though, and I'm really sad about Tim Driesen leaving today. He was brilliant as Stacee yesterday.

Saw the matinee yesterday, loved it just as much as I did the first time I saw it - was very impressed with there only being one understudy (Scarlette Douglas as Constance) as the first time we saw it there were four on and when we were at we will rock you there seemed to be about 7! Still the funniest show I've seen, Simon Lipkin makes me laugh so much, I love Sandy as well he makes me laugh so much as Franz , Nathan and Rohan were both off when I went before so it was nice to see them, Daniel Fletcher is a fantastic Dennis - so funny and a great singer. Me and my mum were in disagreement over Stacee Jaxx - I said I preferred Tim Howar and she preferred Shayne. Spent so long at the souvenir stall landed up buying a vest top and a bracelet. Hope to go again,  possibly after cast change!
