“I’m going into my wicked era!” STEPS icon Faye Tozer cast as Cruella de Vil in new 101 Dalmatians tour

Graham Robson May 1, 2024

STEPS icon Faye Tozer will be playing Cruella de Vil in Norwich, Canterbury, Leicester and Wolverhampton, joining the previously announced dates of fellow Cruella Kym Marsh, who opens the UK and Ireland tour in June.

The new musical version of Dodie Smith’s classic book, 101 Dalmatians is written by Douglas Hodge (music and lyrics) and Johnny McKnight (book), from a stage adaptation by Zinnie Harris. This classic canine caper is brought to life on stage with spectacular puppetry, show-stopping choreography, hilarious songs and irresistible puppies!

Faye Tozer is probably best-known for BRIT Award winning pop band STEPS who had number one hits with Tragedy and Stomp and have sold over 25 million records worldwide! Their 10th album The Platinum Collection celebrating 25 years reached an impressive No.1 in the official charts and they have proudly just completed their 10th UK Arena tour.

She said: “I’m going into my wicked era with this dream role – it really doesn’t get much better than Cruella de Vil! When they offered me the part, I just jumped at the chance. I love that it’s something people probably don’t expect me to do and can’t wait to create my own version of her for this incredible new musical.”

After launching in Wimbledon the production will visit Birmingham, Norwich, Canterbury, Leicester, Manchester, Belfast, Wolverhampton, Newcastle, Southend, Dublin, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Woking, Cardiff, Southampton, Aberdeen, York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Oxford and Brighton.
