Take That in­spired mu­si­cal

Bangor Mail - - FRONT PAGE -

DAVID Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and Take That are bring­ing the UK tour of Tim Firth’s new mu­si­cal, The Band, with the mu­sic of Take That, to Venue Cymru this Novem­ber.

The Band is a new mu­si­cal about what it’s like to grow up with a boy­band. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘ the band’ is ev­ery­thing. 25 years on, we are re­united with the group of friends, now 40-some­thing women, as they try once more to ful­fil their dream of meet­ing their he­roes.

Take That said: “We are in­cred­i­bly proud and ex­cited that our first pro­duc­tion as the­atre pro­duc­ers is The Band – a mu­si­cal that we think will touch the hearts of not just our fans, but ev­ery­one.”

The Band will be played by AJ Bent­ley, Nick Cars­berg, Yaz­dan Qafouri, Cur­tis T Johns and Sario Solomon, who, as Five to Five, won BBC’s Let It Shine. They are joined by Rachel Lum­ber as Rachel and Faye Christall as Young Rachel, Emily Joyce as Heather and Katy Clay­ton as Young Heather, Alice Fitzjohn as Claire and Sarah Kate Howarth as Young Claire, with Jayne McKenna as Zoe and Lau­ren Ja­cobs as Young Zoe.

Fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful open­ing at the Manch­ester Opera House, fans were in for a huge sur­prise when Take That and Lulu took to the stage fol­low­ing the show’s fi­nale on the na­tional press night.

Gra­ham Nor­ton, who was in at­ten­dance, said “I loved it. The whole show was truly spe­cial. Big laughs and co­pi­ous tears.”

With 5* star re­views, The Manch­ester Evening News said “Take That’s mu­si­cal The Band truly shines. It will make you laugh, cry and sing your heart out” and The Sun­day Mir­ror said “It will have you in fits of laugh­ter, fight­ing back tears but ul­ti­mately danc­ing in the aisles.”

Now the fastest-sell­ing mu­si­cal the­atre tour of all time. Don’t miss your chance to see this breath-tak­ing brand new pro­duc­tion first be­fore it hits Lon­don’s West End. The Band runs from Novem­ber 14-25 at Venue Cymru. Book your tick­ets on-line now: www. venue­ or call the Box Of­fice on 01492 872000.
