The producers of the smash-hit ‘NATIVITY! THE MUSICAL’ are thrilled to announce
Dani Dyer will be joining her father Danny Dyer in Nativity! The Musical this Christmas at the Eventim Apollo, from 19 to 31 December.
As previously announced, Danny Dyer will play the role of ‘Hollywood Producer’, ‘Mr Lewis Parker’ whose daughter, ‘Polly Parker’ will be played by Danny’s real-life daughter, Dani Dyer. ‘Polly Parker’ is an aspiring actress living in Los Angeles whose father will go to any lengths to secure her a dream role in a Hollywood film.
Dani Dyer’s throughly modern take on girlpower, and her romance with partner Jack Fincham, were undoubted highlights of the Summer of 2018. The daughter of EastEnders actor and namesake Danny, won ITV2’s Love Island with a landslide 80% of the vote and captured the hearts of the nation. Dani embraced her love of acting at National Youth Theatre – where she started her training as an actor. She has a number of film credits under her belt, most recently Bonded By Blood 2 last year, Asylum (2016), We Still Kill The Old Way (2014) andVendetta (2013). Since leaving Love Island, Dani has launched a fashion range with In The Style, and worked with other brands including Virgin Atlantic and Lucozade. Dani is extremely excited to be making her stage debut in Nativity The Musical! and is looking forward to what the future holds in the industry! On starring in Nativity!, Dani said today, ‘I am so excited to make my stage debut in Nativity! and with my dad! It is going to be so much fun and will be lovely for us to be in a musical together at Christmas time, I just can’t wait’.
Director Debbie Isitt said, “I made Nativity! The Musical to give families the opportunity to watch a funny and touching Christmas musical together – and like with the films – we have created a family in the making of the show. Bringing the brilliant Danny Dyer together with his gorgeous daughter Dani on stage will be great fun for audiences and highlight how important families are at Christmas time. I’m really excited to work with them both – it is going to be a lot of fun! Children, animals and two Dyer’s? Bring on the sparkle and shine!”
Joining the Dyer family is the previously announced Jo Brand, Simon Lipkin, Scott Garnham and Ashleigh Gray.
