The musical will star Coronation Street's Nigel Pivaro, who appeared in the soap between 1983 – 2012 as the lovable rogue Terry Duckworth.
He will be swapping the cobbles for the stage and performing the role of Da in this new production.
Nigel Pivaro says:
"It's an iconic story that resonates across the years, about people who though distant from the music's origins find communion and expression in the Motown style.
"A musical genre which was borne out of oppression and which the characters embrace as their own.
"The Motown Sound is as vibrant today as it was when it first burst through in the Sixties."
The Commitments tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan, who transforms an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians into an amazing live act, which becomes the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.
Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the members of his new band, which he names The Commitments.
Humour kicks in as the band get to know each other and their instruments, grappling with inter-group differences as they muddle their way through early rehearsals for the band's first gig.
Just as they improve and begin to get a name for themselves, they combust.
The backing singers are more interested in the middle-aged horn playing legend, the singer has entered Eurovision, the drummer has walked out mid-gig and the saxophone player has dangerous leanings towards a jazz career.
Roddy Doyle added:
"I'm delighted that The Commitments are coming back in 2022 & 2023 and I'm particularly looking forward to seeing how Nigel Pivaro tackles the part of Jimmy Rabbitte's Da."
