Show Stoppers Column: Get into the swing of spring at the theatre

Cara Lee previews some shows to look out for in April and May in MK.

There is plenty of music and theatre happening in Milton Keynes over the next couple of months, as we get into the full swing of spring.

On the 10th of April at The Stables, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra will be celebrating Amy Winehouse,
who was also NYJO alumni.

Including hits from across her short but stunning career, including Back to Black and Rehab, it’s a perfect tribute to a music icon.

Going into May, the London Tango Quintet will be performing on the 12th. Made up of five internationally renowned musicians, they will be playing the music of Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, mixed in with a few other classics.

Over at The Venue, on the 26th of May. Mapdance will be bringing their superb dance show to MK.

The University of Chichester’s performance company, Mapdance, uses work from a variety of innovative contemporary choreographers.

Finally, over at MK Theatre, Singin’ in the Rain will play from the 11th to the 16th of April and Les Misérables will return from the 26th of April to the 21st of May.
