Musical melodrama set in Liverpool about twins separated at birth and the effects on their personalities as they grow up of 'nature' and 'nurture'. A poor family, already with kids, is blessed with twins, but they can't cope. The mother cleans at a 'posh' house where they are desperate to have kids but can't and a deal is struck which no-one must know about. Despite the efforts of the new family the boys paths cross time and time again as they grow and one becomes 'bad' while the other is 'good'. Eventually they clash with tragic consequences. The musical is un-usual in having a "narrator" who helps to move the plot along.
Running time 2 hours 45 mins including interval
The story of the legendary father of rock and roll, Buddy Holly, who died tragically young in a plane crash - this show has got everything needed for a tantastic family night out - laughter, tears and a finale that will have everyone from eight to eighty dancing in the aisles!
Blues behind bars from the writers of Cabaret. Justice is on trial for the husband killing bad girls of shady Chicago.

The story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. The show follows the journey of two members of a frustrated synthesizer band - the opening scene we find them playing but being ignored in a shop window - who turn to Jimmy, the local music expert, for help. Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the new line up who he names The Commitments. The humour kicks in as the band get to know each other and their instruments, and proceed through early rehearsals for their first gig. Just as they improve and begin to get a name for themselves they combust. The backing singers are all getting off with the middle aged horn legend, the singer has entered Eurovision and the saxophone player has dangerous leaning towards a jazz career.

Funny Girl brilliantly balances exuberance and energy with genuine emotion.

Join the Liver birds - Maggs, Carla, Daisy Mae and Lil from Kirkby Munitions Factory - as they battle not only the Nazis but also their own threats, fears and jealousies. Will they overcome their troubles and find hope? The musical is set on the night of 28/29 November 1940, in the early phase of the Liverpool Blitz. The events of that night were, later, described by Winston Churchill as "the worst single (civilian) incident of the war". It involved a direct hit by a parachute bomb on Durning Road Air Raid Shelter near Edge Lane which killed 180 people. The production is entirely a work of fiction, however it is based on the facts of that night and the first-hand experiences of women - much like the four Liver birds in the show - from one of Britain's largest wartime munitions factories. Liver Birdsong: The Liverpool Blitz Musical combines broad comedy, poignant tragedy and the musical styles of 1940, into a compelling mix that will have the audience roaring with laughter and reaching for their hankies.
The award-winning musical that tells the electrifying story of the night in 1956 when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis came together to make music and ended up making history. It is inspired by the actual event that took place on 4 December 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis and features over 20 of the greatest rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits ever written including: Blue Suede Shoes, I Walk The Line, Fever, Great Balls of Fire, Hound Dog, Folsom Prison Blues and Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On. The legendary meeting was masterminded by Sun Records' founder Sam Phillips, who discovered all four of the musicians, and brought Elvis Presley (and his then girlfriend) back to the recording studio that launched him to stardom. Together with Sun Records' fast-rising new superstar Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins, who was still chasing his next big hit after writing and recording Blue Suede Shoes, the fourth member of this impromptu "quartet" was Phillips' latest signing, Jerry Lee Lewis. Million Dollar Quartet is a story of fame, friendship, discovery, divided loyalties, professional jealousy and incredible music as four of the music industry's most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, made music together for the first and only time in their careers.
