Eight-time Tony and four-time Olivier Award-winning musical smash hit Hairspray spreads its toe-tapping magic across the UK once more during a hotly anticipated regional tour in 2021.

Listen up Corn Nuts, after a sell-out West End run in 2018 Heathers is heading out on a UK wide tour in 2021! An uproarious and joyous adaptation of the 1988 cult-classic, this is a high school musical with a difference. So grab your scrunchies and croquet mallets, this is one that would be deadly to miss...

The master illusionist is back and ready to stun, thrill and bemuse with his new production Showman. Whilst the details of this exciting new venture remain a closely guarded secret, Brown has revealed that the show will "will ultimately be about you, the audience member, because that's what I find most interesting. There are places I'd like to take the audience where we haven't been before." Knowing what the man has cooked up before, it's likely that Showman will be his most mind-bending live tour yet!

In 1984 smash-hit blockbuster Footloose introduced the world to Kevin Bacon, punch dancing and a whole lot of teen spirit. Over three decades later the enduring story is set to light up the regional theatre scene once more during the hotly anticipated return of the UK musical tour, starring none other than Pop-Idol-turned-national-treasure Gareth Gates and helmed by original director Racky Plews (American Idiot, Thoroughly Modern Millie).
