If you’re a big musical theatre fan, you’ll be keeping a very close eye on what’s coming to local theatres over the next few years.
Alhambra Theatre won’t disappoint! Jersey Boys and Bring It On the Musical are the latest big hits to be announced.
The internationally acclaimed stage sensation, Jersey Boys, is coming to Bradford from 8th – 19th March. The hit musical has won 65 major awards and has been seen by over 27 million people across the globe, so it’s safe to say it’s a pretty successful musical. I’m not the biggest fan of the show myself but, as with all musical tours, it could always be different under a new director or with a new cast.
The show tells the story of four guys from Jersey who have a sound nobody has ever heard of. It features all of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ hits including Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Oh What A Night, Walk Like A Man, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and Working My Way Back To You. Follow their journey from the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
High-flying Bring It On the Musical is coming to the Alhambra Theatre in July 2022. The production takes audiences on an energy-fuelled journey which tackles friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness – wrapped up in explosive choreography and tricks. Squad Captain, Campbell, is forced to move to the neighbouring high school and she fears her life is over – until an unlikely friendship catapults her back into contention.
The musical is based on a 2000 film of the same name. I haven’t actually seen the film, but it’s thought to be a classic and many people absolutely love it! This latest production will be led by West End and Love Island star Amber Davies as Campbell and four-time Olympic medallist and Strictly Come Dancing winner, Louis Smith as Cameron.
An original score has been created by the superstar that is Lin-Manuel Miranda and Pulitzer Prize winning Tom Kitt. The book is written by the Tony Award winning writer of Avenue Q,
Jeff Whitty and the lyrics are by both Lin-Manuel Miranda and writer of the stage adaptation of High Fidelity, Amanda Green.
