Full casting has been announced for the return of award-winning hit musical Hamilton to London’s Victoria Palace Theatre in August.

With the run due to resume from 19 August 2021, Karl Queensborough will be back to play the title role of Alexander Hamilton with Simon-Anthony Rhoden returning as Aaron Burr.

They will be joined by Ava Brennan as Angelica Schuyler, Waylon Jacobs as Marquis De Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, Khalid Daley as John Laurens and Phillip Hamilton, and Harry Hepple as King George.

Also returning after the Covid-19 hiatus are Sharon Rose as Eliza Hamilton, Trevor Dion Nicholas as George Washington, Emile Ruddock as Hercules Mulligan and James Madison, and Emilie Louise Israel as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds.

At certain performances the role of Alexander Hamilton will again be played by Nuno Queimado.

The cast also comprises Jade Albertsen, Curtis Angus, Robson Broad, Matthew Caputo, Filippo Coffano, Ashley Daniels, Kelly Downing, Lydia Fraser, Jordan Frazier, Manaia Glassey-Ohlson, Jake Halsey-Jones, Olivia Kate Holding, Peter Houston, DeAngelo Jones, Nicolais-Andre Kerry, Travis Kerry, Ella Kora, Natasha Leaver, Aaron Lee Lambert, Phoebe Liberty Jones, Sinead Long, Louis Mackrodt, Jay Perry, Lindsey Tierney and Brandon Williams.

In announcing the new cast, the producers added that obtaining Government-backed contingency insurance to protect against further unscheduled closures remained a priority.

They added that all plans for the re-opening of Hamilton were in accordance with the Government’s latest directives and therefore subject to change.

The Olivier, Tony and Grammy award-winning production opened at the newly re-built and restored Victoria Palace Theatre in London in December 2017 and continued to play there until the start of lockdown in March last year.

It has book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton, and is directed by Thomas Kail. It features choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg and hair and wig design by Charles G LaPointe.

It is produced in London by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Cameron Mackintosh.
