Get ready to relive the playlist of your life at the brand-new British musical; NOW That’s What I Call A Musical.

Blondie, Tears For Fears, Spandau Ballet and so many more.
Written by award-winning comedian Pippa Evans, and directed by Strictly Come Dancing legend Craig Revel Horwood, this heart-warming and funny story takes us on an uplifting journey down memory lane. It’s Birmingham, 1989. Two school friends, Gemma and April, are busy with very important business – planning their lives based on Number One Magazine quizzes and dreaming of snogging Rick Astley. Cut to Birmingham 2009 and it’s the most dreaded event of their lives– the school reunion. Drama, old flames and receding hairlines come together as friends reunite and everything from the past starts to slot into place. The biggest question is: what was with all that hairspray?
So dust off your spandex, get your crimper out and press play and record at the same time. An unbeatable soundtrack, show stopping choreography and an original story – NOW That’s What I Call A Musical.
