An Officer and a Gentleman – The Musical comes to Wales Millennium Centre from June 25-30.
Emma Williams will play ‘Paula Pokrifki’, Jonny Fines is ‘Zack Mayo’, Ray Shell as ‘Foley’, Ian McIntosh as ‘Sid Worley’ and Jessica Daley as ‘Lynette Pomeroy’.
This new musical is based on the 1982 Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere which tells the story of Zack Mayo who is in training to become a US Navy Pilot. When Zack rolls into boot camp with a bit too much of a swagger, drill Sergeant Foley doesn’t make life easy for him. When he falls for local girl Paula Pokrifki and tragedy befalls his friend and fellow candidate, Zack realises the importance of love and friendship and finds the courage to be himself and win the heart of the woman he loves. It’s only then he can truly become both an Officer and a Gentleman.
The musical includes the hit song from the movie ‘Up Where We Belong’ along, with 80’s classics such as ‘Alone’, ‘Don’t Cry Out Loud’, ‘You’re the Voice’, ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’, ‘Heart of Glass’, ‘Toy Soldiers’ and ‘Material Girl’ and features one of the most iconic romantic scenes ever portrayed on screen.
