Welcome to the Princes Theatre’s Summer Season.

It’s always a pleasure to introduce you to a brand new

season, and we certainly have some fantastic treats in store

for you over the coming months with returning favourites,

wonderful family entertainment and the very best live

music acts.

Our highlights for this season include the introduction of

some brand new shows.

To start the summer season off we have one of Britain’s

newest and most exciting Classical Crossover groups on

their first UK tour Vox Fortura. This quartet of talent

will leave you speechless with their exceptional and

breathtaking harmonies. For the comedy fans the All Star

Stand Up Tour will be coming to our theatre in May. This

show is hosted by the winner of the Chortle Comedy Award

for Best Compere Jarred Christmas and is also starring 3 top

comedians, Stewart Francis, Justin Moorhouse and BAFTA

award winning Jim Tavare. These 4 fantastic comedians

have joined forces to bring you one of the biggest comedy

tours for 2017.

Other highlights include a group of talented musicians,

singers and songwriters which will bring you a flavour of

classic hits such as Nights in White Satin with their show

Legend of a Band – A Tribute to the Moody Blues, Wayne

Ellington will be paying tribute to the legendary Nat King

Cole singing all his favourite songs with a voice that is

“Unforgettable” and Mary Duff, top Irish country folk singer

who will be performing this coming July.

For the children Dinosaur World will be returning with

their truly amazing dino-mite adventure. This is a

show not to be missed – the puppets are so realistic.

As always we promise to continue to go above and beyond

providing world class entertainment guaranteed to keep

you coming back time and time again.

We hope you enjoy the Summer programme and look

FRIDAY 2nd JUNE

7.30PM

A Celebration of

Frankie Valli

& the

Four Seasons

Back by popular demand, following a fantastic performance

in 2016, Bye Bye Baby takes you back in time on a musical

journey through the career of Frankie Valli & The Four

Seasons, whose songs graced such films as The Deer Hunter,

Dirty Dancing and Grease.

From their early beginning in the 1950s, when Frankie first

joined the group, this show celebrates the greatest hits such

as ‘Beggin’; ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’; ‘Walk Like A Man’; ‘Lets Hang

On’; ‘Who Loves You’; ‘December ’63 (Oh What A Night)’; ‘Bye

Bye Baby’; ‘Can’t Take my Eyes off You’; ‘Fallen Angel ‘ and

‘Grease’ through to a superb grand finale medley of more of

the group’s greatest hits.

The combination of world class vocals and harmonies, as

Jamie Ledwith scales the falsetto heights of Frankie Valli,

along with snappy choreography and a vast catalogue of hits

makes for a memorable and unforgettable night of nostalgia.

WAYNE ELLINGTON

SINGS

NAT KING COLE

Nat King Cole was an original, selling in excess of 30 million

records during his career. His voice unmistakeable and

completely unique, loved the world over.

Every generation since his death has fallen in love with

the King’s voice and music; his late daughter Natalie Cole

brought her father’s music to new generation in the 90’s

when her own newly recorded vocal track was added to

her father’s 1961 stereo re-recording of his original 1951

‘Unforgettable’

Wayne Ellington’s voice is warm, silky and smooth; his tone

suits Nat King Cole’s songs perfectly. Wayne doesn’t mimic

Nat King Cole; he plays tribute to a legend who left us far

too early. He sings all the songs we know and love so well,

with honesty and complete respect.

His show is a beautiful tribute to the great man, his voice

will leave you tingling and spellbound, this is a show not to

be missed.

the vibrant, innovative Show ‘We Run This.’ The Show is a

culmination of all genres taught at JA Performing Arts and it

set to be their best performance yet.

Neil Sands and his wonderful west end cast are back with a

brand new production for 2017.

There can be no doubt that music brings back so many

wonderful memories and this feel good afternoon filled with

over 60 all time favourite songs from the 1940’s through to

the 1970’s will have the memories flooding back. From old

time sing along, to Rock & Roll, Forties favourites to the pop

hits of the 60’s and as always a flag waving tribute to the

veterans of our Armed Forces.

All mixed with stunning costumes, amazing voices, and lots

of laughter, this show will brighten everyone’s day and prove

how special Music and Memories are.

Inspired by and featuring the songs of ELVIS PRESLEY ®

It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little

state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes

everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lipcurling

musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your

blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,”

“Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”

MARY

DUFF

Mary Duff has been at the top of the European Country

music tree for more than three decades, enjoying the

appreciation of audiences worldwide as part of Daniel

O’Donnell’s show (now in its 24th year). She is a very

familiar voice and face from Norway to New Zealand!

Mary first got the chance to showcase her talent at just 12

years of age when, quite by chance, her father heard her

singing on a home tape recorder, he invited Mary to sing

with his band at weekends and once Mary finished school

she became a regular musical figure around the County of

Meath in many bands including a three year stint with the

busy “Jukebox”.

Despite having received multiple music industry awards

over the years, it is the 1990 Meath Person of the Year

accolade which Mary is most proud of amid an array of

highlights including a 2004 Live broadcast with Daniel

O’Donnell recorded as a PBS Special in America with

a registered audience of 66 million viewers!! In 2011

Mary fulfilled a lifelong dream performing at the

Ryman Auditorium a.k.a. ‘The Grand Ole Opry’.

International stages have beckoned with several

solo tours of Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

In 2013 Mary celebrated 25 years in the music

industry and was awarded ‘Female Vocalist of the

Year’ at the prestigious Sunday World Irish Music

Awards and was also honoured as ‘Grand Marshall’ at
