Debbie Kurup and Matt Rawle are to lead the cast of Anything Goes, directed by Daniel Evans.

Kurup was most recently in The Bodyguard, while Rawle’s credits include Evita and Cabaret in the West End.

Both have also previously worked with Sheffield Theatres, which is co-producing the tour with Stage Entertainment.

Anything Goes opens on November 28 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, with press night on December 8. It runs until January 17 in Sheffield, before touring the UK.

Other cast members include Stephen Matthews, Zoe Rainey, Simon Rouse, Hugh Sachs and Jane Wymark.

From April 6, when the show plays at the Opera House in Manchester, the tour also includes Shaun Williamson and Kate Anthony.

The Cole Porter musical, which has a new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman, is designed by Richard Kent, has choreography by Alistair David, and musical supervision by Nigel Lilley.

The lighting design is by Tim Mitchell, sound design by Simon Baker and musical direction by Tom Brady.

The tour visits venues including the New Wimbledon Theatre, the Churchill Theatre in Bromley, and the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. It is currently scheduled to run until October next year.
