& Juliet

When: July 30-August 3

This Olivier Award-winning jukebox musical flips the script on the greatest love story ever told and asks, what would happen next if Juliet didn’t end it all over Romeo?

Her story bursts to life through a playlist of pop anthems, including Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time, Katy Perry’s Roar and I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys. 

Matt Cardle, who shot to fame after winning The X Factor in 2010, plays Shakespeare and Emmerdale's Sandra Marvin stars as Angelique.

A Chorus Line 

When: August 27-31

On a Broadway stage in 1975, 17 performers are put through their paces in the final audition for a new musical - but only eight will make it through. 

Celebrate the lives of theatre’s unsung heroes, as they tell stories of ambition, shattered hopes and what it really costs to follow your dreams.

The show stars Adam Cooper (Singin’ in the Rain, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake) as Zach and Carly Mercedes Dyer (The Drifters Girl, Anything Goes, Dreamgirls) as Cassie.
