SPECTACULAR SPRING SEASON AT THE BELGRADE THEATRE

Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre has announced several spectacular shows which are set to explode onto their Main Stage in February 2018, including smash-hit musicals and fun family adventures.

Considered one of the greatest ever musicals, The Sound of Music tells the epic true story of the singing Von Trapp family set to Rodgers and Hammerstein’s magical score.

This much-loved musical took the world by storm when it was adapted for the big screen in 1965, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, and remains the fifth highest grossing film of all time.

It features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on screen and stage, including Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, So Long Farewell and of course, The Sound of Music.

Following the sell-out success of Gangsta Granny, Birmingham Stage Company return to the Belgrade with the next stage adaptation in the series of best-selling children’s books by David Walliams – Awful Auntie!

When Stella sets off to visit London with her parents, Lord and Lady Saxby, she has no idea her life is in danger! Waking up three months later, only her Aunt Alberta can tell Stella what has happened. But not everything Aunt Alberta tells her turns out to be true and Stella quickly discovers she’s in for the fight of her life against her very own awful Auntie!

Featuring the soulful music of Dusty Springfield, Son of a Preacher Man is back out on tour with a brand new cast including Debra Stevenson (Bad Girls, Coronation Street) and Alice Barlow (Hollyoaks), and is directed and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood.

This sparklingly funny and sweetly touching new musical by internationally renowned writer Warner Brown will have you laughing, crying and singing your heart out to some of the greatest songs ever written including The Look of Love, I Only Want to be With You, Spooky and of course, the classic Son of a Preacher Man.
