Sullivan to take on lead role in Grease

by -

Former Hear’say popstar Noel Sullivan is to make his West End debut as Danny Zuko in Grease at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Sullivan will join the cast of the musical on November 30, and is currently scheduled to appear in the show until July, 2010. He will star alongside Emma Stephens, who plays the role of Sandy.

He said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Grease and making my West End debut in such a legendary show. Danny is a fantastic role and I’m so excited to be part of such a feel-good, all time favourite musical – it’s a dream come true.”

Sullivan is best known for singing with pop group Hear’say, which formed through ITV talent search Popstars in 2001.

He has also appeared in a number of stage productions, including Fame at the Edinburgh Playhouse, and UK tours of Flashdance: The Musical, Love Shack and What a Feeling.

Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, directed by David Gilmore and choreographed by Arlene Phillips, Grease is produced in the West End by Paul Nicholas and David Ian, by arrangement with Robert Stigwood.
