Do opposites really attract? Cool chick Casey (Samantha Barks) and tightly wound Aaron (Simon Lipkin) are hoping so. These two New York City singles have been set up by friends and family, but from the outset this First Date seems to be doomed. The two have nothing in common… But with the help of a meddling but well-meaning waiter, and a host of other characters along the way, can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
With a contemporary rock score, First Date gleefully pokes fun at the all too familiar dating mishaps we’ve all experienced and gives hope that there could be that one special person out there for all of us.
Samantha Barks and Simon Lipkin will be joined by Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Only Fools And Horses), Nicholas McLean (Wicked) and Danielle Steers (Bat Out Of Hell), as well as a special appearance by Rufus Kampa (The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, The Musical). This joyful show will be filmed in the world-renowned Crazy Coqs with direction and professional videography by Dean Johnson, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins and musical direction by Josh Winstone.
