White Christmas is an all-singing, all-dancing festive treat, full of showbiz razzmatazz and a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure – though with the memories of war lurking in the background, there is a dark edge that offsets the Technicolor world of the 1950s.
A joy from start to finish, White Christmas is a real treat that you will not want to miss out on.
Before long the stage is overflowing with so much joy, romance and goodwill to all that ultimately, much like the snow song, this White Christmas proves impossible to resist.

It is hard to know where to start with such a talented and energetic cast. Every cast member in Hairspray brought life and vitality to the performance and executed the complex choreography with vigour, precision and enjoyment in equal measure.
Hairspray has been touring for years – it was last here in 2016 – and the reason why people are still flocking to see it is there for all to see. It’s a heart-warming and empowering tale that just makes you want to get up and dance.
Despite highlighting serious issues such as prejudice and intolerance, this show remains a popular, light-hearted and fun night of musical theatre and this latest tour certainly kept it in this now famous ‘feel-good’ vibe.
This mahoosive new tour of Hairspray started in the middle of last month and stretches right through to June 2018 and it certainly feels like it has the potential to be a great success.
Full cast details have been announced for the return of HAIRSPRAY on tour, which opens a new 37-week, UK-wide schedule at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on 16 August 2017.
Following on from Lonny Price’s previous successes with Sweeney Todd and of course last year’s Sunset Boulevard, his production of Carousel truly celebrates the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical – but at the sacrifice of creating fully formed characters for the cast to play.
Rodgers and Hammerstein considered Carousel to be their finest work. The show is this year’s semi-staged Coliseum offering from Michaels Grade and Linnit and they have laid on a sumptuously sized cast and orchestra that bring a rarely encountered richness to the famed musical.
After successes with Sunset Boulevard and Sweeney Todd, English National Opera continues its annual headline-grabbing foray into musical theatre with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel. As with the previous ENO musicals of the past two years, this production is produced by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade (who are also behind the current big-budget production of another Broadway classic, […]
Nicholas Lyndhurst and Brenda Edwards join Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, the third production in the partnership between The GradeLinnit Company and English National Opera.
The (new) Union Theatre and Southwark Playhouse in south London are always a pleasure to visit – not least because both venues are practically on my doorstep, within a ten-minute walk. At the moment, they’re both showing quirky, seldom-seen musical revivals: Moby Dick! and Side Show.
The school play has no budget, so PE equipment gets a starring role as set and props, and their uniforms are costume with a few accessories. The line between the school girl characters and the Moby Dick characters is thin and porous, and the story hinges on the “it’s so bad it’s good” concept.
