The show will be performed in Bromley.

A new musical will be telling the story of iconic performer Tom Jones’ rise to fame.

Tom - The Musical will be performed in Bromley in April.

Set in the dance halls, working men’s clubs and recording studios of the 1960s, the show features hits such as Ghost Riders in the Sky, It’s Not Unusual, What’s New Pussycat, Delilah and Green Green Grass of Home.

Kit Orton will be playing the role of the Welsh singer, joined on stage by Elin Phillips as Linda, Nicola Reynolds as Vi and Phylip Harries as Jack Lister.

Tim Bonser will also play the role of Mr Jones during certain performances.

Mr Orton’s previous theatre credits include Bill Sykes in Oliver at the Watermill Theatre and Sir Lancelot in Spamalot at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The musical is written by Mike James and directed by Geinor Styles.

Talking about the show, Mr Styles said: “We are over the moon to welcome back Kit Orton and this great company of talented actors and musicians alongside newcomers John Mclarnon; Deborah Thomas; Richard Corgan, Nicola Bryan and Tim Bonser to take this inspirational story of a true Welsh icon to audiences throughout the UK.

“This rock and roll musical laced with great Welsh humour and charm is guaranteed to have audiences up on their feet in celebration of this living legend’s story.”

The show will be performed at the Churchill Theatre from April 26 to 30, with performances taking place at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
