Strictly and Steps stars join War of the Worlds cast at Hull’s Bonus Arena



Claire Richards and Kevin Clifton have joined the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of ‘The War of The Worlds’ – Alive on Stage!

The musical, that’s based on HG Wells’ classic novel, is set to visit Hull’s Bonus Arena in April 2022.

Steps star Claire Richards – who has three multi Platinum albums – is making her debut as Beth, The Parson’s Wife.

Claire said: “I am so thrilled to be joining the cast of Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds for their 2022 Arena tour. To be a part of such an iconic production is so exciting, and I’m really looking forward to getting back out on the road next year.”

Strictly star Kevin Clifton will debut as The Artilleryman. Kevin is no stranger to West End with roles in ‘Dirty Dancing the Musical’ and ‘The Wedding Singer’.

Kevin said “I am unbelievably excited to be joining the cast of Jeff Wayne’s The War Of The Worlds. In 2022 this particular story could not be more relevant. After so long without live performance, what better experience could there be than this spectacular arena production complete with a full live onstage orchestra and special effects.”

The War of The Worlds will be coming to Bonus Arena in Hull on 5th of April 2022.
