A Summer adventure of love in the sun and a soundtrack of feel-good smash-hit pop classics, it's Club Tropicana the musical UK Tour.

Club Tropicana the musical UK Tour

It's a time when hair was big, shoulders were padded and mobile phones were shaped like bricks and weighed a tonne! Take a fun-packed trip back in time to the electric 80’s with the world premiere of Club Tropicana The Musical UK Tour, a summer adventure of love in the sun, with a soundtrack of smash-hit pop classics - it really is the feel-good musical of the year!

When our budding bride and groom get cold feet, they decide to jet off separately to sunnier climes and feel the heat – but little do they know they’ve checked into the same hotel… the vibrant Club Tropicana!

With drinks flowing and tans glowing, will our young lovers decide to finally go through with the wedding? Will hotel inspectors get their way and close the resort, or will the staff save the day?

All will be revealed in hilarious style, to an irresistible soundtrack of some of the most iconic, chart-topping pop anthems of the decade all performed live on stage, including ABC, Cyndi Lauper, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, a-ha, Culture Club, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, Bucks Fizz and Depeche Mode: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Take On Me, Just Can’t Get Enough, Oops Upside Your Head, The Look of Love, Making Your Mind Up, Relax, Islands on the Stream, She Drives Me Crazy, Don’t Go, La Dolce Vita, Surprise, Surprise, Church of the Poison Mind, Fantasy Island, Up Where We Belong, I Could Be So Good for You, Fantastic Day and many more! Welcome to Club Tropicana, the 1980’s answer to Love Island. The drinks are free and the whole family are invited to join the ultimate holiday musical, celebrating everything we loved about the 80’s, a decade when girls (and boys) just wanted to have fun.
