Jeffrey Holland will play Danny, conductor of the Grimley Band, in Brassed Off—the first in-house production at Wolverhampton Grand in almost 40 years.

Holland, known for his television appearances as Spike in Hi-de-Hi!, has worked extensively on stage including seasons at the Chichester Festival Theatre and Edinburgh Festival.

The cast also includes Christopher Connel as Phil, Miriam Edwards (Sandra), Ash Matthews (Shane), Clara Darcy (Gloria) and Eddy Massarella (Andy).

Brassed Off is written by Paul Allen and adapted from the screenplay by Mark Herman. It will be produced by Wolverhampton Grand in association with talking Scarlet. Former artistic director of Hull Truck Theatre Gareth Tudor Price directs, with set and costume design by John Brooking. Lighting design is by Anthony Aston.

Brassed Off runs at the Grand from Wednesday 23 August until Saturday 2 September.
