If your interested in musicals and the theatre then Manchester is the place to be, no longer does London have to be your destination when your in search of some theatrical entertainment.
There are some entertaining theatre
productions reaching Manchester soon. Many of these are touring but some remain
open in the theatre for several months at a time.
Grease. Showcasing at the
Palace Theatre Manchester, Grease is an old time favourite that the whole
family will love – including the little ones. With glitz and costumes and music
to knock your socks off, Grease is a winner for all. You might even get to meet
the cast after the show if you’re lucky!
Sister Act. At the Opera House
Theatre in Manchester, Sister Act returns for another successful round of
shows. Its record breaking sell out shows have been popular all over the
country and Manchester is no exception. The show is based around Deloris who
witnesses a murder and gets put into protective custody in a convent. She helps
the convent’s choir become a hit and meets many friends along the way. The diva
style, family friendly, fun and fabulous show is sure to have you dancing on
From the sound to the scenery
to the stage lighting, Manchester welcomes The Sound of Music back into its
Palace Theatre this autumn. The hit show follows a large family escaping the
Nazis and welcoming a new Nanny into the home. It is just as mesmerising as the
film and is ideal for children and adults alike.
Dirty Dancing. Everyone loved
the film well now it’s time to relive it through the live experience. Heart
pounding music and sincere acting make the show an enjoyable and heart warming experience
for anyone- even those who haven’t seen the film. The audience members get up
and dance too, making the atmosphere even more electric.
Oliver! This hit show has
received a lot of good press recently after the TV show reminded audiences of
the heartfelt tale of a young boy at an orphanage who struggles to make his
way. The songs are just as great as they always were, and the show is being
shown in Manchester for several months. This is one not to be missed!
