This month I only have 3 musicals as most theatres have their pantomine on and unpopular opinion I am not a fan of the panto! I used to love it growing up but these days as a child free by choice woman the thought of sitting in a room full of children does not fill me with joy! So what should you see this month?
Scrooge - Curve Leicester
Since performing in this back in 2004 (playing the amazing roles of Teddy in the toy ballet and girl with sledge) I have watched the dvd every single Christmas. When I saw that it was coming to the Curve I snapped up tickets straight away. The classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by the ghosts is set to a wonderful score with songs including Christmas children and my all time favourite Thankyou very much you will be singing along all the way into the new year!
Running from the 18th November until the 7th January tickets are priced between £10 and £45. I am going to see it on the 16th December so look out for my review!
Flashdance - Birmingham New Alexandra Theatre
A young steel working woman who performs fashion driven dances in a club... whats not to love? The show is adapted from the 80s film of the same name and features songs such as Maniac, I love rock and roll and of course what a feeling.
I haven't seen this musical yet but it runs from the 4th to the 9th of December at the Birmingham New Alexandra theatre. Tickets are priced between £20.40 and £63.90
That is all I could find this month musicals wise! Most other theatres have either pantomimes or ballet which aren't really my cup of tea (although I do love the nutcracker) Are you a fan of musicals? I already have a long list of things I want to see in 2018!
