The award-winning show ran in a sold-out tour in the UK, pre-pandemic, between 2018-2019. The musical has also successfully ran on Broadway and London's West End and was made into a major Hollywood film starring a certain Tom Cruise.

The show offers escapism taking audiences back to a time 'where the dreams are as big as the hair'.

Sound design is by Ben Harrison (“Mame”, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” and “Fame”) and musical supervision is by Barney Ashworth (“Sunny Afternoon”, “Grease” and “Mrs Henderson Presents”).
