MK Theatre announces new Spring Season

Date Posted:01/12/2014


Woman in BlackThe Spring 2015 season at Milton Keynes Theatre is sure to be at the top of everyone’s Christmas list. But before we look ahead to the New Year gather your loved-ones, sprinkle some fairy dust and get ready for an awfully big adventure this Christmas with the regions biggest Panto – Peter Pan.   MK’s favourite panto star Bradley Walsh returns leading an all-star cast with Britain’s Got Talent Street Dance sensations Flawless  the pop-locking, hip-hopping pirates as you have never seen them before, the baddest baddy of all David Bedella (The Rocky Horror Show, Jerry Springer The Opera) and George Ure (Wicked) as the our ever-youthful hero in a show that has everything you need for the perfect pantomime (even for those big kids who never grew up!)

The theatre will be turning up the heat in January, Gary Lucy and the cast of The Full Monty bare all in Simon Beaufoy’s play of the Oscar-winning film, whilst West End hits Jersey Boys a story of heart, humour and hits, and The Producers starring Jason Manford and Louie Spence are guaranteed to chase away the winter blues.

Christopher Sergel’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird warms the heart this March, while Jeeves and Wooster starring Robert Webb will bring you laugh out loud ‘perfect nonsense’ from PG Wodehouse’s iconic double act, but if it’s jumping out of your seat at a gripping thriller that will thaw you out, don’t miss the most terrifying live theatre experience in the world, The Woman in Black.  

Dance til DawnAlongside this exciting mix of musicals and drama you’ll find exceptional dance productions including Matthew Bourne’s award winning modern fairytale Edward Scissorhands, plus two enchanting tales by Northern Ballet , the romantic classic Wuthering Heights and the Brothers Grimm tale, Elves & The Shoemaker, a magical ballet especially for children. Saturday Night Fever packed with legendary Bee Gees hits will having you dancing in the aisles. And don’t miss the return of Strictly’s favourite dancers Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace in their dance spectacular Dance Til Dawn or Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance – Dangerous Games featuring 40 of the worlds most outstanding Irish dancers.

Welsh National Opera make their annual return with Dominic Cooke’s warm and witty production of The Magic Flute, Chorus! An extravaganza of some of opera’s greatest moments, featuring the talents of soprano Lesley Garrett and Richard Jones classic production of Hansel & Gretel which delves into the dark and comic side of opera and fairy tale.

Music fans can look forward to Barry Steele’s critically acclaimed Roy Orbison and Friends, a night of platforms and flares with Abba Mania, the legendary That’ll Be The Day, non stop blues, Motown and soul from the Chicago Blues Brothers, big band fun with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, cult icons Chas and Dave, the spectacular Bootleg Beatles, Sing-Along-A Sound of Music, rock and pop icons The Hollies, the Solid Silver 60’s 30th Anniversary Show and the marvellous Paul Carrack!  While kids can ‘let it go’ with Sing-A-Long-A Frozen.
