Tom Pye will design the production, which will feature lighting design by Peter Mumford, choreography by Nathan M Wright, orchestration by Christopher Walker and casting by Maggie Lunn.

First announced in November, High Society runs at the Old Vic from April 30 to August 22, with a press night on May 14. It will be the final production performed as part of the venue’s in-the-round season.

Further casting is yet to be announced.
