Cara Lee previews the best theatre shows in Milton Keynes in February.
Things will be going a bit pear-shaped at MK Theatre this month, as the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society (probably best known for The Play That Goes Wrong) will be attempting a production of the classic story Peter Pan, in Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
They’ll be causing chaos from the 4th to the 8th of February.
And once the mess has been cleared up, the Gloria Estefan musical will be getting you all On Your Feet from the 11th to the 15th of February.
A less volatile version of Peter Pan will also be on at Stantonbury Theatre, as Rare Productions once again gives talented local youngsters a chance to shine. They’ll be performing from the 20th to the 22nd of February.
If you’re in the mood for some classic music on your journey back from either version of Neverland, the BBC Big Band will be coming to the Stables on Tuesday 6th, celebrating the work of icons such as Artie Shaw, Bennie Goodman and Duke Ellington.
Moving on to the standup side of things, Mark Thomas will be bringing his trademark mix of comedy and storytelling to MK in his new show 50 Things About Us, also coming to the Stables on the 12th of February.
