New Summer Season now on sale at MK Theatre

Date Posted:13/04/2015

Shrek Milton KeynesNo matter what the weather is like outside, it’s going to be a sizzlingly, hot summer at Milton Keynes Theatre!

The greatest show on earth is one big claim; but that’s exactly what’s coming our way when Brian Conley hits town with Barnum, the lively musical that follows the roller-coaster life of Phineas T. Barnum.

There’s more heavenly musical magic from two all-time family favourites this summer. The Von Trapp family singers defy the Nazis and make history in a lavish new production of The Sound of Music while Jesus Christ Superstar, the first great rock opera, has a story as compelling today as it was when the musical was first produced more than 40 years ago (let alone when the events took place more than 2000 years ago!)

If laughter really is the best medicine (and they do say that it is) then everyone should be prescribed a hearty dose of Spamalot. The multi award-winning comedy musical gallops into Milton Keynes to the sound of a medley of coconut shells.

The King of rock ‘n’ roll lives again through 25 of his best-loved songs in Love Me Tender, a new musical inspired by the chart-busting hits of Elvis Presley.
Our big summer blockbuster, Shrek the Musical, is a must-see show for the whole family and it’s going to be taking OGRE Milton Keynes for three whole, big, bright and beautiful weeks! Don’t miss the chance to see this all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza live on stage and join the green adventure!

You can’t beat a good, old-fashioned murder mystery and we’ve got double helpings of chilling thrills with best-selling author Peter James’ stage adaptation of Dead Simple and a return of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company in And Then There Were None.

And if quality drama is your idea of a great night out there’s still time to book for the highly praised production of The King’s Speech starring Jason Donovan and Raymond Coulthard.

Magic of MotownDance fans can immerse themselves in Northern Ballet’s passionate adaptation of the classic story, Wuthering Heights but the company has something wonderful for younger fans of dance too with Elves & the Shoemaker, their delightful ballet for children. Royal Ballet, Ballet Rambert and South African legends, Ladysmith Black Mambazo join together in a unique artistic collaboration that has won a whole host of awards. Inala is a cultural explosion of music, song and dance that promises audiences at Milton Keynes Theatre a spiritually uplifting live experience – and an unforgettable night out at the theatre.

With an amazing line-up of one night shows including comedy from Milton Jones and Jimmy Carr, live music from The Proclaimers and Russell Watson, psychic entertainment from Colin Fry and the very best from tribute bands performing music by Queen, The Eagles and The Carpenters the summer season at Milton Keynes Theatre really is hot stuff!

Looking a little bit further ahead, the days may be getting shorter but the nights at Milton Keynes Theatre will be just as bright with shows such as The Glenn Miller Story, starring Tommy Steele, The National Theatre’s multi award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and three operas from the internationally acclaimed Glyndebourne Tour in the autumn programme.
