Cinderella – The Rock n Roll Pantomime

Yes we know its only April and granted, it’s only a matter of months since we were heckling Abanazer and howling at Widow Twankey’s corny gags, but with the spirit of Christmas still coursing through our veins, City Varieties are pleased to announce that Cinderella will get the Rock ‘n’ Roll Pantomime treatment for 2018.

A very different format to the traditional Christmas pantomime, Rock ’n’ Roll Pantos are billed as a hilarious, high-speed show that feature a talented troupe of actor-musicians who perform all the classic hit songs and music live on stage.

Tickets go on sale on Monday 9th April and the show is on from Saturday 1st December 2018 through to Sunday 13th January 2019.  Tickets are priced from £14

Friday 20th April through to Saturday 19th May 2018

Sunshine on Leith – West Yorkshire Playhouse

Returning from war overseas, servicemen Davy and Ally find their way in their hometown of Edinburgh in this funny and moving story. They embark upon intertwining journeys of life and love, set to the timeless songs of the much-loved band The Proclaimers, including I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), Letter from America and of course the emotive Sunshine on Leith, as they question what ‘home’ really means.

Originally a stage musical before being transformed into the 2013 feature film adaptation, this feel-good, dazzling new production will leave you asking how many miles you would walk for love?

Tickets available from £13.50 from West Yorkshire Playhouse
