Making a welcome return is Mischief with their riotous spin on a timeless classic, the West End smash hit Peter Pan Goes Wrong (Tue 3 – Sun 8 Oct). The Full Monty will be baring all from Tue 21 – Sat 25 Nov with an all-star line-up.
The official Take That Musical, Greatest Days (Tue 7 – Sat 11 Nov) features more than 15 Take That songs and starring Jennifer Ellison, while Six returns following its previous sell-out success with the Tudor queens taking to the mic once more to tell their stories of historical heartbreak that turn into 21st-century girl power.
