Meanwhile, Rylan Clark-Neal will star as The Critic for the London dates.
He said: “I’m so excited to be joining the company of Nativity! The Musical. The Eventim Apollo is such an iconic London venue and I am thrilled that I will be performing to thousands of people as The Critic, which is such a terrific role.
