Twins for Parent Trap

After a five-year casting search and auditions across the UK, three sets of identical twins are about to become Britain’s latest musical theatre stars.

The trio will be starring in Identical, the new musical adaptation of The Parent Trap directed by Sir Trevor Nunn and produced by Kenny Wax whose current hits include SIX the Musical and The Play That Goes Wrong.

Identical tours to The Lowry from August 19 until September 3.

Kyla and Nicole Fox, aged 12, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, Emme and Eden Patrick, 12 from Waltham Abbey and Sienna and Savannah Robinson, 12 from Bromley, are playing Lottie and Lisa in the world première, a new musical destined for the West End.

Identical tells the story of Lottie and Lisa, twin girls separated at birth, reunited by chance at a summer camp 10 years later. In an attempt to rejoin their divorced parents, they decide to swap identities.
