The musical comes from Roddy Doyles best-selling novel

Coronation Street legend, Kevin Kennedy, is to star as Jimmy’s Da in musical The Commitments, which will begin its tour in Bromley.

The Commitments was written by Roddy Doyle and will feature many of the cast from the record breaking show’s two year run at London’s Palace Theatre.

Brian Gilligan will reprise his role as Deco, and Andrew Linnie will star as Jimmy Rabbitte.

This tour comes 30 years after The Commitments first burst from the pages of Roddy Doyle’s novel.

The musical will be coming to Bromley’s Churchill Theatre on October 3-7, and will then travel across the rest of the UK.

Roddy Doyle said: “The Commitments were born in Dublin, moved to London, and will soon be hopping all over the shop. I wrote the novel – invented the characters – in 1986, and it thrills me to think that they will be entertaining audiences throughout the UK and Ireland 30 years later, in 2016.”
