Ghost the Musical

9:29am 20th March 2017

There seems to be a lot packed into the programme at Aylesbury's Waterside Theatre over the next few months.

Here's a look at what to expect.

There's something to shout about with Shout! the sensational swinging 60's musical.

Starring Niki Evans (X Factor, Blood Brothers) and Helena Blackman (How Do You Solve A problem Like Maria), the show takes you back to the music, fashion and freedom of the 60s.

Using letters to an advice columnist, true confessions, quizzes and advertisements to frame the chart-topping hits including Downtown, Son of a Preacher Man and Goldfinger, this is an infectious, soulful non-stop journey.

One of cinema's biggest hits is reimagined on stage with Ghost The Musical.

The soundtrack and ever-powerful storyline stars West End leading lady Carolyn Maitland as Molly.

Drama strikes with two 'who dunnits' to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Ruth Rendell's A Judgement in Stone unravels a lifetime of deceit, despair and cover-ups with familiar faces including Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street, The Bill) Sophie Ward and Mark Wynter to name a few.

Thriller Deathtrap is a spine-chiller starring Paul Bradley (Holby City, EastEnders) and continues to hold the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history - a must-see for those wanting a wickedly enjoyable night.

National Theatre's critically acclaimed Jane Eyre delivers an innovative take on Brontë's masterpiece showing the spirited heroine's strength of character in facing life's obstacles, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal.

Drama continues to be out in force for young theatre fans too with David Walliams' Gangsta Granny, and a popular feline friend stealing the limelight with The Tiger Who Came For Tea.
