Ruthless! The Musical (16th March 2018 - 23 June 2018)
This cult-classic musical by Marvin Laird with lyrics by Joel Paley is coming to the Arts Theatre for a limited 14-week run! Famous for featuring Britney Spears and Natalie Portman as understudies in the 1992 Off-Broadway production, this spoof of Broadway musicals is full of lighthearted fun! The musical follows Tina Denmark, a young aspiring actress who is dying to land a role in her school play. In a murderous fashion that pre-dates 1999's dark comedy film Drop Dead Gorgeous (starring Kirsten Dunst and Denise Richards), Tina will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Miss Nightingale (21st March 2018 - 6 May 2018)
This new, show-stopping British musical with 16 original songs will be premiering at the Hippodrome Casino in London's Leicester Square for a seven-week run. The highly-anticipated musical takes place in 1940s Londing during World War II. It was written and created by Matthew Bugg and will be his first-ever musical. Bugg is a leading composer, sound designer and movement director who defied all odds at 14 years old when the doctors said he would never dance again after a shoulder injury. He proved them all wrong when he returned to dance at 17. Book your tickets now and secure your spot in the cabaret-style seating to see this "blitzy, wartime romance of gin, gents, garter belts and terrific songs!" (The Times).
