FOOTLOOSE - The Legendary 80's Musical

Kick off your Sunday shoes and cut loose as the explosive rock ‘n’ roll musical sensation Footloose bursts on to the UK stage in a remastered show sure to get your toes tapping. Based on the 1980s hit film that took the world by storm, Footloose the musical sizzles with the same spirit of youth, rebellion and romance.

City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, an American rural backwater. But things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town bans dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone.

Enjoy the best in UK musical talent, cutting-edge choreography and classic hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear it for the Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.

Produced by the Award-Winning Team at Selladoor Productions – Producers of Avenue Q and American Idiot.

Disney's Beauty and The Beast - about the show


Det Ny Theater - Copenhagen

A wandering enchantress transforms a cruel and vain prince into a hideous Beast, leaving him only one way to reverse the curse - fall in love with another and earn her love in return. Belle, a beautiful book-lover, encounters the Beast when she arrives at his castle to plead for her father’s freedom, ultimately trading her own for his. As tension over her imprisonment escalates in the town, spurred by Gaston, the selfish lover who seeks Belle’s hand in marriage, the relationship between Belle and the Beast grows, leading to an emotional, and transformative, conflict.

The Tailor Made Man - Arts Theatre West End

Humphrey McDermott - Nominated for BEST LIGHTING DESIGN - What's On Stage Awards



William “Billy” Haines was a popular silent screen MGM movie star who was fired by Louis B Mayer because he was gay and refused to give up his lifelong partner, Jimmie Shields, and marry the silent screen vamp Pola Negri. As punishment, his films were removed from release and sealed in the MGM vaults never to be seen again, and his studio photographs destroyed. It was an attempt to erase him completely from movie history. But Billy and Jimmy’s turbulent, passionate love affair was to survive and lasted over 50 years
