Pride in London is the perfect time to celebrate all things LGBT+, so the world premiere of HE SHOOTS! HE SCORES! - A Musical With Balls at the Above the Stag Theatre in Vauxhall is the ideal opportunity to show some rainbow-laced solidarity...

A brand new musical comedy and an official Pride in London event, HE SHOOTS! HE SCORES! is written by by Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper (Get ‘Em Off, Beauty on the Piste, Tinderella) and directed by Rob McWhir (Get ‘Em Off, Torsten - The Beautiful Libertine, The Bus), and runs at the Above The Stag Theatre from Wednesday 5 July until Sunday 6 August 2017, with a press night on Friday 7 July.

Step inside the locker room in this rude, romantic and rib-tickling new musical comedy.

Fresh off the train from rural Devon, Joe joins the Hercules Harriers: London’s worst gay football team. He sets out to transform them from hot messes into winners, in time for an international gay tournament. But with the promise of athletic gays convening from all over Europe, the Harriers are more interested in action off the pitch.

From the team behind Get ‘Em Off! and the writers of award-winning pantomimes, HE SHOOTS! HE SCORES! promises great tunes and big laughs for all.

The creative team for HE SHOOTS! HE SCORES! include book written by Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper, lyrics by Jon Bradfield, direction by Rob McWhir, musical direction by Iain Vince Gatt, lighting design by Jamie Platt, and the show is produced by Peter Bull for Above The Stag Theatre.
