Enjoy the sound of the musicals this summer at venues across Notts

A hit production in Chichester, the West End and more recently Sadler’s Wells, Michael Harrison and Jonathan Church present Chichester Festival Theater and Stage Entertainment’s production of Singin’ in the Rain.

He has fame, adulation and a much-publicized “romance” with his co-star Lina Lamont.

But Hollywood is about to change forever. There are rumors in the studio of a new genre of film, where the actors actually talk…and sing…and dance.

Can Don and Lina’s unique voice make the transition, and will backing vocalist Kathy Selden fulfill her dream of stardom and capture Don’s heart along the way?

Later in July, the Northern Musical Theater Orchestra will present a South Pacific concert by Rodgers and Hammerstein at the Retford Majestic Theater on July 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Set on an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Featuring a 35-piece orchestra and ensemble of professional and local singers, the show’s concert features hit songs such as Bali H’ai, Younger Than Springtime, I’m Going To Wash That Man Right Out My Hair, There Is Nothing like a lady and many more.

Finally, the postponed visit to Book Of Mormon – nine times Tony Award and four times Olivier winner for best musical – will take place at the Nottingham Theater Royal from August 17 to September 10.

This outrageous musical from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q and Frozen co-writer Bobby Lopez, follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent on a mission to a place that is hardly near as far from Salt Lake City as you can get.

Now with sold-out productions in London, Broadway, North America, Melbourne and Sydney, The Book of Mormon has become a worldwide sensation and should not be missed by musical theater fans across Nottinghamshire.
