Shows announced for 2019
In Spring 2019 we present the Irving Berlin classic Top Hat. This spectacular show brings the glamour of Hollywood's golden age and the glorious tap-dancing magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the stage in one of the greatest dance musicals of all time.
Packed full of Irving Berlin's greatest hits including Cheek to Cheek, Top Hat White Tie and Tails, Let's Face The Music and Dance and Puttin On The Ritz, Top Hat tells the story of Broadway sensation Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl Dale Tremont. An uplifting and hilarious romantic comedy with breathtaking dance routines that will set the pulse racing!
Our Autumn 2019 production needs no introduction, it is quite simply a classic of musical theatre - MY FAIR LADY. The story revolves around Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. 63 years after it was created, MY FAIR LADY is still as fresh and vibrant as it ever was.
These two fabulous and contrasting shows will follow our exciting 2018 season of Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. All shows will be presented at Darlington Hippodrome.
