About this show

The world premiere of a new musical that will simply sweep you off your feet! Based on true events, An Officer and a Gentleman The Musical follows the Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere. Its feel-good soundtrack includes the hit song from the movie Up Where We Belong along with many 80s classic anthems including Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Livin’ On A Prayer, Heart of Glass, Material Girl, Don’t Cry Out Loud, I Was Made for Lovin’ You, and The Final Countdown.

Zack Mayo is in training to become a US Navy Pilot. When he rolls into boot camp with a bit too much of a swagger, drill Sergeant Foley doesn’t make life easy for him. When he falls for local girl Paula Pokrifki and tragedy befalls his friend and fellow candidate, Zack realises the importance of love and friendship and finds the courage to be himself and win the heart of the woman he loves. It’s only then he can truly become an Officer and a Gentleman.

Please be advised An Officer and a Gentleman contains themes of an adult nature and strong language.
