Take That Show 'The Band' comes to Leeds Grand Theatre 2018
MUSICAL INSPIRED BY TAKE THAT AT LEEDS GRAND THEATRE NEXT YEAR
David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and Take That have announced that the UK Tour of Tim Firth’s new musical, THE BAND, with the music of Take That, will have a major UK Tour, beginning at Manchester Opera House on 8 September; with a national press night on Tuesday 26 September 2017 it takes to the stage at Leeds Grand Theatre in March next year.
The producers made the announcement yesterday, Sunday 2 April, on stage at the Manchester Apollo (where Take That first performed in 1992), following a rapturous reception to a rehearsed reading of the new musical in front of an audience of invited guests, from fans to friends.
Take That said, “We are incredibly proud and excited that our first production as theatre producers is THE BAND – a musical that we think will touch the hearts of not just our fans, but everyone.”
THE BAND is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boy band. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992 ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.
The Band will be played by Leeds’ own Curtis T Johns, AJ Bentley, Nick Carsberg, Yazdan Qafouri Isfahani and Sario Watanabe-Soloman, who, as Five to Five, won BBC’s Let It Shine. Playing the parts of Rachel and Young Rachel will be Rachel Lumberg and Faye Christall respectively. Further casting is to be announced.
The Band is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 20 March 2018 to Saturday 31 March 2018
Tickets are on sale now priced from £19.50 - £49.50
