Club Tropicana the Musical

A new feel-good summer musical, Club Tropicana, will tour the UK next year.

Written by Michael Gyngell (who co-wrote the stage version of Summer Holiday!), the production bills itself as the "80s' answer to Love Island" with all manner of classic tunes featured.

The show will open at Churchill Theatre Bromley on 24 January before touring until 13 July, visiting cities including Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, London, Sheffield, Norwich and Brighton. More dates and casting are to be announced.

It is co-directed by Samuel Holmes and Nick Winston, with Winston also choreographing the show. Set and costume design is by Diego Pitarch with lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Ben Harrison and musical supervision by Greg Arrowsmith.

Producer Mark Goucher said: "What a time the '80s were: great dancing, great bands, great music, funny clothes... but mostly really bad hair! But I look back with such happiness remembering going to gigs for the first time. Club Tropicana The Musical is a celebration of the '80s with a lorra lorra laughs!"
