Inspired by a true story and based on the Miramax film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, Kinky Boots
tells the story of Charlie Price who has reluctantly inherited his father's Northampton shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discovers that when you change your mind, you can change the world.Performers Simon-Anthony Rhoden (Lola), Natalie McQueen (Lauren), Cordelia Farnworth (Nicola), Oliver Tompsett (Charlie Price), Sean Needham (Don), Antony Reed (George), Abbey Addams, Jak Allen-Anderson, Jed Berry, Jonathan Carlton, Louis Clarke-Clare, Momar Diagne, Daniel Downing, Jemal Felix, Jordan Fox, Rosie Glossop, Robert Grose, David Haydn, Keith Higham, Ben Jennings, Robert Jones, Graham Kent, Suzie McAdam, Emma Odell, Christopher Parkinson, Hannah Price, Jon Reynolds, Tom Scanlon, Anna Stolli, Olivia Winterflood, Theo Collis (Young Charlie - some dates), Jude Muir (Young Charlie - some dates), Charlie Underhill (Young Charlie - some dates), Fred Wilcox (Young Charlie - some dates), Josiah Choto (Young Lola - some dates), Zion Gardner (Young Lola- some dates), Temba Mliswa (Young Lola - some dates), Samson Wakayu (Young Lola - some dates), Matt Henry (Nov 26-28), KillianDonnelly (Nov 26-28).
