This cast change takes place on Sunday 10th March 2013. Not all of the names below are officially confirmed by the show, producers or the theatre it should be said; instead they rely on things that have been said at stage door/passed on from that person directly, or via Facebook/Twitter.

Thought this should be started as Dan Burton has announced today that he will be joining 'The Pyjama Game' in Chichester next year, and therefore leaving come March. As contracts are up for renewal soon and auditions are imminent, post any news here!


Leaving: Matthew Wycliffe (Bob Gaudio), Eugene McCoy (Nick Massi), Howard Jones (Bob Crewe), Dan Burton (Joe Pesci), Mark Carroll (Knuckles), Trina Hill (Francine), Michael Conway (Swing)

Staying: Ryan Molloy (Frankie Valli), Edd Post (Bob Gaudio), Jon Boydon (Tommy DeVito), Jon Lee (alt. Frankie Valli), Stuart Milligan (Gyp DeCarlo), Ben Jennings (Joe Pesci), Tee Jaye (Barry Belson), Jake Samuels (Norm Waxman), Chris Gardner (Hank Majewski), Nicola Brazil (Mary Delgado), Lucy Martin (Lorraine), Mark Isherwood (Swing), Ben Wheeler (Swing), Lucinda Gill (Swing), Gemma Whitelam (Swing)

New Cast: David McGranaghan (Nick Massi), Will Barratt (Bob Crewe), Mark Halliday (Knuckles), Rebecca Jayne-Davies (Francine), Stuart King (Swing), Ben Evans (Swing), Michael Watson (Swing)
WEST END SHOWS:
2009: The Sound of Music - Oliver!
2010: Jersey Boys - Les Miserables
2011: Jersey Boys - Shrek the Musical
2012: Ghost the Musical - Jersey Boys - Les Miserables - Shrek the Musical - Wicked
2013: Billy Elliot - The Bodyguard - The Book of Mormon - Jersey Boys - Les Miserables - Matilda - The Phantom of the Opera - Viva Forever! - Wicked

Not surprised as he had hinted as much to me a while back but very sad all the same :(

I'm actually looking forward to seeing him in another show (once he gets a new job). :)
Love him in Jersey Boys but three years is a long time.

Yeah, hopefully he'll be able to stay on a West End stage where he so clearly belongs.

And it is, which really does make me wonder whether Ryan will call it a day this time round after 5 years!

Such a good show. Every cast change must be difficult in picking the right cast from year to year as it's such a hard vocal for the lead and covers. If you notice it's quite a older cast ranging from mid twenties. A lot of shows seems to have really young performers who look look like they are straight from collage. When I was there a couple of weeks ago some of the front of house were telling a couple behind me that it was going to be a big cast change this time with a lot of this cast not having their contracts renewed. Well I didn't take a lot of notice as I'm sure rumours do fly around every year. It's been quite a solid show for me with normally good casting from year to year. Everybody has their personal favourites in whatever parts. That's what keeps  shows going. Good luck to everyone who is staying or leaving.we wouldn't have shows of this quality without you.

Agree with a lot of that post :)

Nicola Brazil and Trina Hill are leaving. Apparently Matthew Wycliffe told people at the stage door last week and again tonight that he was going too :(. Edd Post is staying on though which I am pleased about after the amount of time he's unfortunately been sidelined for this year.

Haven't seen him in Jersey Boys, but had a good sing song with him at the Phoenix last night, Michael that is. Great voice and a lovely guy :)
