Show Stoppers Column: Looking forward to future shows

Cara Lee shares revised dates for theatre shows later on this year and 2021.

Unfortunately, another month has rolled by with no theatre and no indication of when it might be able to return.

Sadder still, the drive-in tour of Six was cancelled before it could kick off. But this month we’re looking on the brighter side and taking a look at the shows that have either been pushed back to a later date or are set to be performed a bit further into the future.

MK Theatre has recently announced that the UK tour of Grease is set to run from the 1st to the 6th March 2021 and fresh from the West End, the hit show Waitress will be on from the 4th to the 9th October of the same year.

Whilst Grease follows the exploits of Sandy, Danny and their friends as they navigate high school in the 1950s, Waitress lets us into the world of down on her luck diner worker Jenna, as she enters a baking competition to try and escape her terrible life.

Stantonbury Theatre are also planning lots of fun for all in the latter half of this year, with a bit of
sophistication added in too.

I Spy with My Little Eye is planned for Saturday 26th September, whilst The Sand Dragon (Sunday 18th
October) and Big Book Tall Tales (Saturday 31st October) will also be providing family fun.

A production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth is also scheduled at Stantonbury for Monday the 5th of October.

Meanwhile the line up for The Stables for the rest of this year includes Bye Bye Baby: A Celebration of Frankie Valli on Saturday 10th October, Rachel Parris: All Change Please on Thursday 5th November (previously scheduled for the 13th of May) and Ben Hart: Wonder (featuring the award winning magician from Britain’s Got Talent 2019), on Sunday 17th January 2021.

It may be a while before we can set foot in a theatre again, but at the time of writing there is still a lot to look forward to!
