Pop Idol Gareth returns with magic musical
From the heart of London’s theatre-land and the glitz of Broadway, the critically acclaimed Mad About The Musicals is back in Lanarkshire – celebrating the best songs from the shows we all know and love.
With a host of your favourite numbers from the pen of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Boublil & Schonberg, the talented cast, including Gareth Gates and Michael Courtney, will evoke the true spirit of the stage to bring the best show in town to the Hamilton Town House on October 22.
From the bittersweet ‘All I Ask Of You’ to the powerful ‘One Day More’, sit back and enjoy two hours of unforgettable London and New York favourites, brought to you by a cast direct from the West End.
Gates and Courtney will head the cast of the 10th anniversary production, kicking off in England on October 1. They will be joined on stage by musical theatre actresses Rosanne Priest, Kerry O’Dowd and Nichola Lagen.
Gareth Gates rose to fame in the inaugural Pop Idol TV show in 2001/2. He became a household name making it to the most memorable of these finals, when he went up against Will Young.
He went on to sell more than five million records worldwide and have hits across the globe.
His version of Unchained Melody sold over a million copies in the UK and is the third bestselling single of the Noughties, whilst Anyone of Us was an international hit. He is also the youngest ever-male solo artist to debut at No.1.
More recently Gareth has had a hugely enjoyable and successful career in musical theatre and has appeared in Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
In 2014 he picked up his skates again to appear in the last ever TV series of Dancing on Ice.
He also found time to join a band and become part of the second series of the Big Reunion, in the super group 5th Story, alongside Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kenzie and Kavana.
This newly formed boy band will play arenas across the country this autumn with Blue, 5ive, Damage and 3T.
Michael Courtney has produced and directed the UK tours of the critically acclaimed Mad About The Musicals, Waterloo, Shakin All Over, Its D’Lovely, A Night Of Musicals, over 30 UK Pantomimes and was nominated as the UK Producer of The Year by Encore Magazine.
He is currently on tour in his show, Love Changes Everything, and will direct a new stage comedy in 2015, 69 Shades of Black, starring ex-Steps singer and actress Faye Tozer.
