Kimberly Wyatt is confirmed to make a celebrity guest appearance in the comedy musical Friendsical, written and directed by Miranda Larson at Cardiff’s New Theatre on September 8 & 9 before the show embarks on the rest of its UK-wide tour.
Kimberly will be joining the cast in Cardiff, making special cameo appearances throughout the show including the big disco number “Richard’s Moustache”. Finding fame as a member of The Pussycat Dolls, Wyatt has delighted British audiences on screen as a judge for the Sky One series Got to Dance, won the 2015 series of Celebrity MasterChef, reached the finals of ITV’s Dancing on Ice earlier this year in addition to her series regular role across three seasons of BBC’s, Almost Never.
“I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be a special guest for Friendsical! The show Friends is a huge part of my life. ‘How you doin’, ‘Pivot’, and ‘Smelly Cat’ are forever with me. I feel like I’ve seen most episodes multiple times and now I can’t wait to take it to the stage,” says Kimberly.
Friendsical is an original, unique parody musical inspired by the hugely popular and beloved US TV show Friends.
Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe have been with us for nearly 30 years. They are still there for us, and this time a stage show musical parody crams all 10 seasons and 236 episodes into just over two hours of nostalgic fun.
Join all six friends as they sit around the iconic brown couch in Central Perk and take a trip down memory lane, with all the very best inside jokes, unforgettable scenes and storylines included. Featuring original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention. What could possibly go wrong?
Writer-director Miranda Larson says, “From day one of airing, I have been a huge fan of the TV Show, and it has been a dream to stage and celebrate this iconic series. There is something for everyone in Friendsical, from the well-known references to ones that only mega fans (like me) will get. Oh and if you are new to “Friends”, then it’s a fun musical love story that can be easily followed!”
Playing everyone’s favourite friends are Sario Solomon as Joey, Sarah Michelle-Kelly as Monica, Nelson Bettencourt as Ross, Tim Edwards as Chandler, Ally Retberg as Phoebe, Amelia Kinu Muus as Rachel, Olivia Williamson as Hot Girl/Ensemble and Tanveer Singh Devgun as Gunther/Male Ensemble.
