Blackpool Grand Theatre line-up
BLACKPOOL’S Grand Theatre will be raising the curtain on some fantastic line-ups this summer.
With 45 varied and spectacular shows, you’re guaranteed a memorable summer of fun and entertainment.
For the first time ever, the theatre has Agatha Christie’s masterpiece The Mousetrap, famous around the world for being the longest-running show of any kind in the history of British theatre —with more than 25,000 performances so far.
The Grand Theatre’s general manager, Neil Thomson said: “The Mousetrap, never before having been to The Grand, or Blackpool, will appear in November and I hope our programme has something for everybody and will inspire you to visit us in the not too distant future.”
Catch Roy Chubby Brown, doing what he does best performing ‘The World’s Most Outrageous Comedian’, a show that is far too rude for TV.
With Bill Bailey and Jason Manford appearing later in the year, there will be laughter in the air.
Don’t miss music from The Drifters, who will be on their 60th Anniversary Diamond dynasty Tour in July. For Eagles fans, join the Illegal Eagles, who will be bringing you all the classic songs, including Hotel California, The Last Resort and Life in the Fast Lane.
The Lancashire Hotpots will be bumbling around on stage in July with folk songs about being from Lancashire.
For Michael Jackson fans Thriller Live will be delivered by great dancers and singers later this year.
And not to forget the children; they can have fun and games helping their favourite TV characters from Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, with Gaston the ladybird and nanny Plum.
For all panto lovers it’s Peter Pan from December through to January and The Grand Theatre favourite Steve Royle will be back to play Smee.
Two years ago Blackpool’s Grand Theatre celebrated its 30th anniversary and has been home to famous faces from around the world.
The Grand was the first Blackpool theatre to present the two big musical hits of World War One - The Maid of The Mountains and Chu Chin Chow - and in the 1920s become noted for staging big American musicals like Rose Marie, The Desert Song and No No Nanette.
The Grade II listed building has been Blackpool's community theatre, Lancashire's most famous opera house and Britain's national theatre of variety.
With a fantastic line-up until November and varied line-up, manager, Neil Thomson has urged theatre-goers to join in.
He added: “The new season contains a varied mix of product and continues with our dance theme, supported by the Arts Council.”
