Here at BritishTheatre.com we want to promote theatre all over the UK. There are so many great touring productions currently performing and about to launch at the moment we thought we’d highlight some of the top-selling tours that you seem to be loving at the moment.
If you haven’t already booked your tickets don’t leave it too long.
Priscilla Queen Of The Desert
Starring Duncan James from Blue, Priscilla is being fired up for that legendary trip into the Australian outback. Featuring songs like I Will Survive, It’s Raining Men, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Hot Stuff, this is a great night in the theatre.
The Disney classic is back this year with all the Poppins magic you’ve come to know and love. The tour kicks off in Leicester in October this year. Tickets for Leicester, Manchester and Bristol are already on sale.
Lorna Luft in The Judy Garland Songbook
This is a must-see for any Judy Garland fans. Judy’s daughter Lorna Luft combines with Louise Dearman (Wicked) and Ray Quinn (X Factor) to bring to live some of Judy’s iconic musical moments including The Wizard Of Oz, Meet Me In St Louis and Easter Parade.
The Rocky Horror Show
It’s time to do the Time Warp again. The Rocky Horror Show starts a new tour later this year and promises to have audiences wanting more. Casting has not yet been announced so stay tuned for more updates.
Love Me Tender
From the producers of Hairspray, Jersey Boys and West Side Story, Love Me Tender is a hilarious feel-good musical featuring Elvis Presley’s greatest hits. In a small town in 1950s America, a guitar-playing, hip-swivelling stranger rides his motorbike into town. Is he The Devil in Disguise or a Hound Dog in his Blue Suede Shoes? The townsfolk are about to be All Shook Up and could be headed for Heartbreak Hotel, but for Natalie, the love-struck, tomboy mechanic, it really is Now or Never.
Everybody who sees Avenue Q falls in love with this zany take on life, love and the internet. Be prepared to laugh and laugh some more. Avenue Q ran in the West End for five years and looks set to bring a smile to the UK as it tours.
It seems the UK has gone Hairspray mad if emails from our users are anything to go by. This award-winning musical will tour the UK from September 2015 and many of the venues have tickets on sale now. Don’t miss this big, bold and beautiful musical when it comes to a theatre near you.
The UK is going mad for The Producers this month as this zany new production of the Mel Brook’s musical starts touring the UK. Jason Manford, Cory English, Louie Spence, Ross Noble, David Badella and Phil Jupitus are coming to a theatre near you. We loved it and are sure you will too.
Jesus Christ Superstar
New dates have been added to Bill Kenwright’s new tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar. This tour has been incredibly popular and receiving some of the best audience feedback we’ve seen. Don’t miss it.
