Do you dream of performing on stage?
The world of theatre is constantly evolving. As the curtains have opened for 2023, there are several new productions coming to the UK that you don’t want to miss! This blog explores some of the most popular productions set to appear in Greater Manchester theatres throughout the year.
Peaky Blinders – The Redemption of Thomas Shelby
Are you a fan of BBC’s Peaky Blinders drama series? The moment you’ve been waiting for is almost here! The production by Rambert Dance will be at The Lowry in Salford from Tuesday 14 – Saturday 18 March. It has been written and adapted by Peaky Blinders’ creator Steven Knight, so it has the potential to be a night full of ‘brummy’ magic; including a stunning dramatisation from the full Rambert Dance Company.
Book your tickets… By order of the Peaky Blinders!
Dirty Dancing Returns!
If you’re a fan of the original movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray, you’ll be excited for the return of the biggest live theatre sensation of all time! Returning to the Palace Theatre in Manchester from Tuesday 30 May – Saturday 3 June, the production promises to provide the audience with heart-pounding music, breath-taking music, and sensational dancing!
You won’t want to miss the latest rendition of the classic story of Baby and Johnny; there’s no better way of preparing for the summer season than watching the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives!
Titanic The Musical
Do you find yourself engaged in Jack and Rose’s tragic love story?
As part of its 10th anniversary UK tour, Titanic the Musical will be coming to The Lowry Theatre in Salford from Tuesday 4 – Saturday 8 July. The musical will see the re-production of one of the most famous real-life productions. The story is based around innocent people who boarded the legendary, ‘unsinkable’ ship, dreaming of a better life in America; unaware of the fate that awaited them.
If you haven’t got around to seeing this musical triumph yet, it’s something you won’t want to miss out on!
