9 to 5

Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot!

While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

After last year’s sell out run of Allo Allo, Spoken Word Productions present this gritty northern comedy by Jim Cartwright.

It tells the story of a young girl, nicknamed Little Voice, who never speaks but has an amazing talent to imitate the singing voices of the great ‘divas’ from her treasured record collection.

When one of her mother’s boyfriends sees the chance to make some money from her talent and forces her to sing in public, things don’t quite go according to plan!

Please note that this show contains some strong language.

The Producers

Hilarious, glitzy and outrageous, The Producers is the zany Mel Brooks’ musical that took Broadway and the West End by storm, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards, including ‘Best Musical’.

A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer hatches a crazy scam: mount the worst ever musical and run off with the funds when it flops. Cue a high-kicking Swedish secretary, a neurotic accountant, goose-stepping chorus boys and a stampede of sex-mad grannies. What can possibly go wrong?

You’ll be rolling in the aisles when The Producers bursts onto the Hull New Theatre stage for the very first time!

Tickets on sale on Friday 12 May at 10am

Renegade! The Musical

Renegade! The Musical

The world of theatre is a place where stories come to life before your eyes. They are also full to the brim of stereotypical roles in a hyper-real way that would never really happen in the real world.

But theatre’s different. It’s a sprinting, fast, exaggerated world – and it’s welcome.

On the set of a musical you need only look at the personalities behind the characters to discover that what may appear a smooth running show on the surface, is fraught with problems.

Renegade! The Musical explores the problems of lack of money, people and opportunity, clashing personalities, over-confidence, under-confidence, pretence and fame in a comically satirical way. In a play that combines Calamity Jane with The Play that Goes Wrong, strap yourself into the saddle and brace for a rootin’ tootin’ ride of a lifetime. Yeee! Haaaa!

Thoroughly Modern Millie

Hot on the heels of last year’s hit production Betty Blue Eyes, Hull’s Northern Academy of Performing Arts is back on the main stage at Hull Truck Theatre with this fabulous musical comedy.

The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City when ‘moderns’, including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, and rewriting the rules of love.

It’s 1922, and small-town girl Millie has just arrived in New York, ready to make her dreams come true. Millie’s plan is simple: find a job as a secretary for an eligible bachelor and then marry him. It doesn’t take long, however, for Millie’s “thoroughly modern” plan to go awry. Her villainous landlady, Mrs Meers, plots to kidnap Millie’s best friend and sell her into slavery in Hong Kong.

Her wealthy boss seems entirely uninterested in her flirtations and worst of all, the man with whom she falls head over heels in love doesn’t have a penny to his name!

This bright, funny, and charming comedy is packed with infectious musical numbers and energetic dance routines, making it the perfect show for all the family.
