We are excited to reveal the latest group of talented performers who will form the new Show Cast onboard Marella Explorer 2.

This is the second cast for the newest ship of Marella Cruises‘ fleet, and includes stand-out performers who attended our most recent auditions, as well as some returning cast members from previous contracts. The team is a mix of experienced cruise performers and new-to-role talent.

Together they’ll go into a three-month rehearsal period in Milton Keynes to learn 12 breath-taking production shows, before embarking the ship and travelling the world.

ted Casting Agent Adele Leatham said: “We’re very excited to introduce our newest cast of performers for our clients, Marella Cruises.

“Our audition process took us across the UK, visiting many industry-leading performing arts colleges with our casting partners Murray Grant and Anne Vosser, and we’re so pleased with the talent we managed to attract.

“On top of that, we’re very proud to have some returning cast members continuing with us. Bobbie, Jamie and Jack have worked extremely hard, wowing audiences onboard Marella Explorer, and we’re so excited to have them staying with us as part of the ted family.

“We’re also thrilled to have Katie back with us, who was part of the inaugural Explorer Show Cast, and we can’t wait to see this cast in action onboard Explorer 2.”


The rehearsal period will see the cast coached by leading Musical Directors, Choreographers and Show Directors, under the guidance of our Creative Director Steve Leatham and Head of Production Sarah-Louise Twist.

The shows they will learn feature incredible costumes and scenery, and live musicians, and will be performed in the beautiful Broadway Show Lounge onboard Explorer 2.
