Adding a new dimension and marking a spectacular finale, with the use of state of the art prosthetics, makeup and spectacular visual effects, HG Wells, played by Scottish actor Callum O’Neill, will be brought to life being seen and heard in three riveting scenes within the show – aged 33, 53 and 79 – spanning the end of the 19th century and two subsequent World Wars.
Conducted by Jeff Wayne, this most ambitious production yet will also feature Liam Neeson in 3D holography as George Herbert The Journalist, Jason Donovan as Parson Nathaniel, Westlife’s Brian McFadden as The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, X Factor 2005 winner Shayne Ward as the Artilleryman, Les Miserables’ Carrie Hope Fletcher as Beth, Parson Nathaniel’s Wife, X Factor 2013’s Joseph Whelan, as The Voice of Humanity, the 36-piece ULLAdubULLA Strings and the 9-piece Black Smoke Band.
The show, which is mixed live in Surround Sound, also features remarkable special effects, including the incredible 3-tonne 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine landing on stage while firing its real flame Heat Ray over the heads of the audience, a 100 foot wide ‘animation wall’ with 2 hours of enhanced cutting edge CGI, the incineration of a cast member in front of the audience’s eyes, a ground-breaking levitation effect PLUS the debut of the first new song since Jeff’s original recording was released.
Jeff Wayne's double album has sold over 15 million records worldwide, and spawned two International hit singles – 'Forever Autumn' and 'The Eve of The War', spending over 330 weeks in the UK album charts.
