There’s something old and something new when it comes to the musicals lined up for Chichester Festival Theatre’s Festival 2019 and just look at the casting. There’s the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic Oklahoma! starring Josie Lawrence as Aunt Eller alongside Hyoie O’Grady and Amara Okereke (Les Misérables) as Curly and Laurey. Plus Tim Firth’s first original solo musical This Is My Family features the talents of James Nesbitt, Sheila Hancock and Clare Burt. Bring on the summer…
StageFaves’ Perry O’Bree attended the West End charity gala opening of The Band at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, a special night raising money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Perry was there on the Red Carpet to chat to all the talented cast – one confessed to being a big fan of Perry – as well as Take That’s Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams too! Are you ready to see them ‘Shine’?
The roof of the Theatre Royal Haymarket was the place to be today as Take That and cast members celebrated the six-week West End run of The Band at the theatre this Christmas.
Could it be magic? Looks like it, as Tim Firth’s Take That-inspired musical The Band looks set to transfer to London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket from December 2018.
Celebs and fans flocked to the press night of THE BAND on 26 September 2017 and were treated not only to the show itself, but also to a performance from Take That...with a little help from Lulu! During the speeches it was also announced that the tour will be extended by a year and judging by all the glowing reviews it's getting, we're not surprised!
The full cast are now announced for the UK tour of Tim Firth’s new musical, THE BAND, with the music of Take That. The tour will begin at Manchester Opera House on 8 September, with a national press night on Tuesday 26 September 2017 and the advance box office for the show has now topped a record-breaking £10million. How are we going to survive the wait until September? Well, we've got to have some patience...
