Imagine being 12 and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets. Kneehigh Theatre, who wowed audiences at the Wallis with Brief Encounter, return with 946, which was originally produced by the Wallis' new artistic director Paul Crewes.
Kneehigh's signature sorcery of music, puppetry and foolishness transports us to Slapton Sands, England, in 1944. Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender tale of love and war.
Centuries ago, the royalty in the palace of Agrabah spoke one language (Spanish) and the people in the streets another (English). But when a rebellious princess and a delinquent street rat meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another, rise above the barriers between them, and with a little magic, help create a better future. Aladdin — Dual Language Edition / Edición De Lenguaje Dual is performed in English and Spanish and is fully understandable in both languages. While based on the tale "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp," the show also includes songs from the Aladdin movie musical, among them "A Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me."
An American in Paris is a Tony Award-winning musical about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.
Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy Award-winning film. The four-time Tony-winning musical features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas. The show earned more awards than any other musical in the 2014-15 season.
Former Secret Service agent-turned-bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don't expect is to fall in love. A breathtakingly romantic thriller, The Bodyguard features a host of irresistible classics, including "Queen of the Night," "So Emotional," "One Moment in Time," "Saving All My Love," "Run to You," "I Have Nothing," "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," and one of the biggest-selling songs of all time — "I Will Always Love You."
Based on Lawrence Kasdan's Oscar-nominated Warner Bros. film and adapted by Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris, The Bodyguard had its world premiere in London's West End, where it was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, and won Best New Musical at the WhatsOnStage Awards.
The moving new musical by Grammy, Emmy, and Academy Award winner Steve Martin and Grammy winner Edie Brickell, Bright Star is directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. It won the 2016 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music and the Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. It also received five Tony nominations, including one for best musical.
Inspired by an actual event, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and '40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just back from World War Two, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past — and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.
Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies, and powerful performances. An uplifting theatrical experience that holds the audience tight in its grasp, Bright Star is daringly hopeful.

Rubicon Theatre Company celebrates Black History Month with The Devil's Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith, starring singer and actress Miche Braden of the show's original off-Broadway production.

There Bessie recounts her incredible journey from an impoverished childhood in Chattanooga to her fortuitous rise as a showstopping singer.
Audiences help Cinderella, Snow White, Little Bo Peep, and even Mother Goose confront the magic and mystery of modern living as they try to find Belle, save the fairy-tale world, and prove that you're never too old to believe in imagination and happily-ever-afters.

Directed by visionary Tony winner Diane Paulus, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan.
Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.

Note: This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
From the creators of Lost: the Musical! and Once Upon a Time: The Rock Opera comes Game of Thrones: The Musical! — an absurd, vulgar, and hilarious musical comedy event. Upon accepting the king's "hand job," Ned Stark is thrust into a struggle for power in the mythical land of Westeros. After battling tap-dancing wolves, overcoming an incest-born prince, and encountering a slew of colorful and disturbing characters, Ned must find a way to protect his family and claim the Iron Throne…or lose his head in the process!
Getting away with murder can be so much fun, and there's no better proof than the knock-'em-dead hit show that won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical: A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder!
Coming direct from New York, Gentleman's Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she's after more than just love), his fiancée (she's his cousin, but who's keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance and be done in time for tea.
Hamilton is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation's first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, as told by America now.
An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch… who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a baker and his wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for objects required to reverse the spell. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy, becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
Man of La Mancha is a comic tragedy of mankind's struggle to better both himself and the world in which he lives. Based on The Adventures of Don Quixote, by Miguel Cervantes, the story is both entertaining and very moving, and will warm the heart of anyone whose spirits were ever raised by the prospect of a victory by the underdog. The score is a musical delight, and contains one of the most inspiring moments in musical theatre as Don Quixote relates his personal credo in "The Impossible Dream."
Set in a prison, the story-within-a-story of Don Quixote's musical misadventures – rife with love, chivalry, and of course, four-armed giants – unfurls into something more transcendent: a beacon of hope in a dire world. Dream the impossible dream with the wandering hidalgo in this quintessential tale about the resilience of the human spirit, and the power of storytelling when faced with insurmountable odds.
Hilariously provocative, what begins as a contemporary play slowly becomes a play with music set 150 years in the future in this seductive world premiere by Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly). A beloved East-meets-West musical, China's 21st-century rise, and a theater company gala collide to make mayhem — and some beautiful music. Inspired by the West's often ridiculously inauthentic portrayals of Asia, Soft Power is the first collaboration between two of America's great theater artists: Hwang and Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home).
With 10 Tony Award nominations (including best musical) this hilarious musical comedy tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells that the next big thing in theater involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world's very first musical.
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant, and timely as ever. The score, by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
