War of the Worlds, obviously. Scribbled with an office pen all over the schedule at my old job, eheheh.
Will Stapleton, front man of the fast-rising British rock band Jettblack will join the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of ‘The War of The Worlds - Alive on Stage!’ for The New Generation tour.
Fresh off the back of a headline tour with Jettblack, Will is looking forward to hitting the stage alongside a new and exciting cast performing the role of The Voice of Humanity.
Will says, “It’s an honour to even be considered for a role like this let alone getting the part. I can’t wait to put my own stamp on the role of The Voice of Humanity whose track ‘Thunder Child’ is the climatic song that ends Act 1. I’m raring to get on stage”
Will joins an all-star cast including Marti Pellow as The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, Jason Donovan playing Parson Nathaniel, and Kerry Ellis as his wife, Beth. Also confirmed is Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson in the role of The Artilleryman.
