We popped into rehearsals for the UK tour of Club Tropicana, to get a first listen to the musical which opens in Bromley in January.

The new musical, written by Michael Gyngell, is set in Club Tropicana Hotel, where the drinks are free and romance is in the air. The piece features a soundtrack of smash-hit pop classics performed live on stage.

Making her professional stage debut, former Sugababe star Amelle Berrabah will appear alongside Joe McElderry, Neil McDermott, Kate Robbins and Emily Tierney.

The cast is completed by Karina Hind, Calvin Hudson, Cellen Chugg Jones, Megan Louch, Rebecca Mendoza, Alexanda O'Reilly, Joshua Pearson, Rory Phelan, Nye Rees, Camilla Rowland, Christina Shand, Courtney-Brogan Smalley, Tara Verloop and Kane Verrall.

Songs in the musical include "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", "Take On Me", "Just Can't Get Enough", "Oops Upside Your Head", "The Look of Love", "Making Your Mind Up" and "Relax".

Club Tropicana is directed by Samuel Holmes and Nick Winston, with choreography by Winston, set and costume design by Diego Pitarch, lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Ben Harrison, musical supervision and arrangements by Greg Arrowsmith and musical direction by Charlie Ingles.
