THE BAND in Scottish Premiere at the King's Theatre Glasgow
Tim Firth’s new musical, THE BAND, will arrive at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow in July 2018 as part of the fastest ever selling UK tour and Scottish premiere.
With the music of Take That providing the soundtrack to the show, the production opens at Manchester Opera House on Friday 8 September 2017 and will run at the King’s in Glasgow from Tuesday 26 June until Saturday 7 July 2018 before heading to the Edinburgh Playhouse from Tuesday 10 July until Saturday 14 July 2018.
Take That said: “We are incredibly proud and excited that our first production as theatre producers is THE BAND – a musical that we think will touch the hearts of not just our fans, but everyone.”
THE BAND is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything.
25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.
The Band will be played by AJ Bentley, Nick Carsberg, Yazdan Qafouri Isfahani, Curtis T Johns and Sario Watanabe-Soloman, who, as Five to Five, won BBC’s Let It Shine. Playing the parts of Rachel and Young Rachel will be Rachel Lumberg and Faye Christall respectively. Further casting is to be announced.
