Welcome...

The summer season is coming to an end and we are looking

forward to bringing a host of top shows to the Princes

Theatre this Autumn.

Amongst this seasons highlights is a very special 50th

Anniversary show by Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics

who achieved their greatest chart success in the 70s with

songs “You Make Me Feel Brand New”, “Go Now” and

“You are Everything” to name just a few. We also see the

return of The Greatest Love of All The Whitney Houston

show starring Belinda Davids. Belinda received a standing

ovation following her performance in 2017 when she took

us on a heartfelt musical journey celebrating Houston’s

greatest hits. This is a show not to be missed!

Alongside these we see the return of some very popular

shows The Magic of Motown, Arrival – Hits of Abba, The

Real Thing, Chicago Blues Brothers, Christmas Memories

and the No.1 classical harmony quartet G4.

Other highlights this season include tribute shows to music

icons, Take That, Luther Vandross, Roy Orbison, Michael

Bublè, Bee Gees and Dusty Springfield.

Our season finale is this year’s Christmas Pantomime Peter

Pan. We are delighted that the leading role will be played

by the very talented Marcus Collins. Marcus has had a

successful and varied music career as a recording artist

and musical star. He has performed in West End shows

Hairspray, West End Men and Kinky Boots. Marcus will

be performing alongside a team of talented actors and

dancers. Get ready for an enchanting production that is

sure to bring out the child in you. Book your tickets early to

avoid disappointment.

We do hope that you enjoy our varied programme and

would like to thank you for your continued support. Please

SATURDAY 6th OCTOBER

7.30PM

Now in it’s 11th year touring, the award winning ‘Rule The

World’ has been recognised as the Number 1 ‘Take That’ tribute

show in the world!

The cast recently appeared alongside THE REAL ‘TAKE THAT’

on BBC1’s ‘The Graham Norton Show’ and after hearing Dan

Maines (Gary), a stunned Gary Barlow said in amazement “He

sounds like me!”. The real Gary then also praised the whole

band saying “They’re very good these guys!” - not an easy

statement to acquire from the former X Factor judge.

This production will take you through the musical highlights of

‘Take That’s’ career. From the moment the fresh faced boys first

stepped on stage in the early 1990’s, to Robbie’s huge success

as a solo artist. The show also features the hugely popular 4

piece years and the big reunion everybody was waiting for in

2010 when all 5 members of ‘Take That’ reunited for a brand

new album and tour. The show is an accurate portrayal of

Take Thats concerts through the years. With the accuracy in

mannerisms and vocals, this show will leave you questioning

whether you just saw the real thing. You will get the feel and

look of all their biggest arena tours... in a far more intimate,

close-up setting!

For this tour, the fantastic Robbie Williams tribute act Dan Budd

is joining the ‘Rule The World’ cast. Dan was a contestant on

BBC1’s ‘Let It Shine’ and head judge Gary Barlow was amazed

by him. He commented “You are an amazing impersonator and

it’s unbelievable how much you look and sounds like Rob”.

If you like ‘Take That’ you will LOVE ‘Rule The World’. Prepare to

be amazed and transported back throughout the past 25 years

of ‘Take That’ magic.

three million selling hit singles in the 70s ‘You To Me Are

Everything’ ‘Can’t Get By Without You’ and ‘Feel The Force’.

In the 80s they were all remixed and became huge hits

again, thanks to the band’s massive following.

Original vocalists, Chris Amoo and Dave Smith, perform

these hits and many more live on stage with their own

fantastic 5-piece band. Enjoy tracks like ‘You’ll Never Know

What You’re Missing’ ‘Whenever You Want My Love’.

Along with their 5-piece band, the trio deliver a funky ‘in

your face’ show with a strong ‘retro flavour’ with the band’s

classic songs mixed with contemporary grooves.

The band continue to tour up and down the country selling

out venues and regularly perform at 70’s & 80’s festivals

alongside such artists as Rick Astley, Boy George, Belinda

Carlisle, Kool and the Gang and Chic. Commenting on The

Real Thing’s success, singer Chris Amoo said, ‘There’s always

going to be a sense of nostalgia about our music. It’s the

sound track to so many people’s lives and that will never die.’
