Club Tropicana comes to Alhambra Theatre in February! Written by Michael Gyngell, this fun musical has a cool soundtrack of well-known 80s hits. Tunes such as Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Take On Me, Just Can’t Get Enough and Oops Upside Your Head are just a small selection of the belting songs on offer.
The show is set in Club Tropicana Hotel – following a bride and groom who both get cold feet and end up escaping… to the same hotel. What can possibly go wrong? With hotel inspectors determined to close the resort, there’s going to be drama!
The show stars Joe McElderry (winner of the X Factor and star of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Neil McDermott (Ryan Malloy in EastEnders), Kate Robbins (Spitting Image, ITV’s The Imitation Game, Dinnerladies) and former Sugababe star Amelle Berrabah making her musical theatre debut.
The show is going to be good fun, but I think it’ll probably fall under the same category as An Officer and a Gentlemen – a jukebox-style musical where the plot is shoved in around the songs rather than telling a seamless story. I could be wrong, though!
Catch the show when it comes to Bradford from 4th-9th February.
