Lizard Boy cast

The UK cast for new indie rock musical Lizard Boy has been announced ahead of its première at Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester from July 14–27.

Equal parts comic book lore and coming-of-age love story, it’s been called "Ingenious" (San Francisco Chronicle), "Phenomenal" (San Jose Mercury News), "Ferocious & Funny" (Seattle Times).

During a childhood accident, Trevor was drenched head to toe in dragon’s blood. Growing green and scaly skin, he withdrew from the world. Twenty years later, Trevor's first date with a cute guy transforms into an adventure of mythic proportions.

The UK cast is Anthony Rickman as Trevor, Alan Cammish as Caly and Sophie Reid as Siren, who are playing alternate nights alongside original US cast of Justin Huertas, Kirsten “Kiki” DeLohr Helland and William A Williams.

Lizard Boy will travel up to Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a full run at the Big Yin, Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose from August 5–28.
