West End star Lucie Jones is to reprise her lead role in the musical Waitress when it comes to Wolverhampton's Grand Theatre next year.

Lucie will play Jenna Hunterson, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life.

Casting for the roles of Becky, Dawn and Dr Pomatter are to be announced.

Further casting includes George Crawford as Ogie, Tamlyn Henderson as Earl and Christopher D. Hunt as Cal. The company also includes Monique Ashe-Palmer, Amelia Atherton, Donal Brennan, Aimée Fisher, Nathanael Landskroner, Charlie Martin, Liam McHugh, Olivia Mitchell and Ben Morris.

Celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie, Waitress embarks on its first UK tour in September, stopping off at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Tuesday 28 June - Saturday 2 July 2022. Tickets are on sale at grandtheatre.co.uk.
