All the shows in the West End at the moment seem to have one common theme, an incredible celebrity cast. Proving to be a successful mix with audiences traveling down to London here are my top picks of celebrity theatre shows.
Ghost the Musical
Ghost the Musical has the amazingly talented Richard Fleeshman better known from his days in Coronation Street and Legally Blonde the Musical starring as Sam Wheat and Cassie Levy known for her breathtaking roles in Hair, Wicked and Hairspray as his heartbroken girlfriend Molly Jensen. This romantic story is as beautiful and as moving as the original film.
Dreamboats and Petticoats
Sam Attwater who has previously starred in Eastender’s and is the winner of Dancing On Ice will join the Dreamboats and Petticoats cast. The story follows a group of musicians who enter a song writing contest to win the heart of a young lady.
Shrek is the must see musical of the year and with its all star cast it’s easy to see why. Since the opening last month Nigel Lindsay, Richard Blackwood, Amanda Holden and Nigel Harman have had nothing but glowing reviews from everyone who has been lucky enough to catch this show. The Britain’s got Talent audience were treated to a sample of the show on one of the final nights of the contents.
The nation watched as Danielle Hope was announced the winner of TV’s Over The Rainbow and she now takes to the stage as the role of Dorothy. The tale of Oz has been brought to life in a spectacular production by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. Featuring all the popular songs from the film, The Wizard of Oz is proving to be one of the big hits of 2011.
Much Ado About Nothing
David Tennant and Catherine Tate are appearing together for the first time in a new production of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. But to see this incredible duo you will have to act fast as the show closes on the 3rd of September.
But it doesn’t stop there, the list of shows with celebrities’ ranges from Betty Blue Eyes, Rock of Ages and The Ladykillers to Legally Blonde, Les Misérables and Lend me a Tenor.
Have you seen any shows with celebrities in? Or are you planning a trip to London to catch any of these?
