Summer is just around the corner and we’re ready to make it the best yet, with a season packed with unforgettable performances…
As always, there’ll be fantastic West End musicals, starting with the return of award-winning show The Bodyguard (11 – 22 June) starring Alexandra Burke featuring a host of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits. The musical comedy, Calendar Girls – The Musical (25 June – 6 July) tells the story of a group of ordinary ladies who achieve something extraordinary together. This summer also sees the return of Avenue Q (15 – 20 July) back by popular demand, so if you missed all the fuzz last time, book early for this laugh-out-loud musical! For the first time, September will see Gloria Estefan’s Broadway hit, On Your Feet! (16 – 21 September) conga into Nottingham with an inspiring story of true love from the streets of Cuba and Miami.
First seen in Nottingham in 1952, Agatha Christie’s legendary murder mystery, The Mousetrap (17 – 22 June) is the longest running show in history and will keep you guessing until the very end. If you’d prefer to try something new, don’t miss The Lovely Bones (24 – 28 September) adapted for the stage from Alice Seabold’s novel about life after loss that has captured the hearts of readers across the world. And of course, the summer wouldn’t be complete without The Colin McIntyre Classics Thrillers Season (30 July – 24 August), featuring four thrilling tales of blackmail, murder and revenge.
