28th October - 2nd November 2024

On the exotic French Riviera, smooth-talking con man Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by charming rich, single ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson is a hustler with a much more basic approach, swindling gullible women with emotional lies about his ailing grandmother. When the two men meet, Freddy is greedy for Lawrence's spectacular lifestyle and they initially agree to work together. But their egos soon clash and only one con artist can prevail: the first to cheat naive heiress Christine Colgate out of $50,000 wins while the loser must leave town. The two men pull out all the stops to outdo each other in an increasingly hilarious battle, but who will win the fortune, and possibly the heart, of poor Christine?

Based on the 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, this sophisticated, suave and hysterical musical features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards.

Sister Act

28th April - 3rd May 2025

Sister Act is the fabulous feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film. 

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique talents to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Filled with fantastic original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
