The complete cast and creative team has been announced for the world premiere of My Very Own British Invasion, set to run at Paper Mill Playhouse January 31, 2019-March 3, 2019.

Directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), My Very Own British Invasion features a book by Tony winner Rick Elice (The Cher Show) and music direction by Lon Hoyt.

The story is described as "a fable of young love, set against the backdrop of the exploding 1960s music scene – when England launched the little dustup that became known as the British Invasion. Based on the experiences of Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits, who was just a teenager willing to sacrifice international stardom for the sake of girl he loves, the show features more than two dozen chart-topping hits from all the best British bands of the era."

The cast will feature Jonny Amies as Peter, Bryan Fenkart (Waitress) as John, Erika Olson (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) as Pamela, Kyle Taylor Parker (Kinky Boots) as Gino, Conor Ryan (Desperate Measures) as Trip, John Sanders (Groundhog Day) as Fallon, and Daniel Stewart Sherman (Kinky Boots) as The Hammer. They will be joined by Travis Artz, Gemma Baird, John Campione, Emma Degerstedt, Trista Dollison, Jay Donnell, Graham Scott Fleming, Douglas Goodhart, Cory Jeacoma, Sage Melcher, Jen Perry, and Daniel Yearwood.

The production team includes scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Gregg Barnes, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Andrew Keister, projection design by Andrew Lazarow, and hair and wig design by Josh Marquette. Casting is by Telsey & Company, Patrick Goodwin, CSA. UK casting is by Jill Green Casting.

My Very Own British Invasion is produced in association with Hal Luftig, Craig Haffner and Rodney Rigby.
