June Whitfield is to join the cast of English National Opera's revival of On the Town, which runs for twenty performances only from 20th April to 25th May. She will play the role of Madame Maude P. Dilly.

The production is a revival of the box office record breaker of 2005 and Helen Anker (Ivy Smith), Rodney Clarke (Master of Ceremonies), Janine Duvitski (Lucy Schmeeler), Alison Jiear (Dolores Dolores), Caroline O'Connor (Hildy Esterhazy), Lucy Schaufer (Claire de Loone) and Andrew Shore (Judge Pitkin: on On 24th April, 17th, 18th, 19th, 22nd, 23rd and 25th May, the role will be played by Graeme Danby) will reprise their performances. Full casting will be announced shortly.

June Whitfield returns to the London stage for the first time since the 2002 production of Bedroom Farce in which she starred opposite Richard Briers.

With a cast and orchestra of 105, On the Town is directed by Jude Kelly, choreographed by Stephen Mear, conducted by Simon Lee, designed by Robert Jones with lighting Mark Henderson.
