VIVA LA DRAG, BEATLEMANIA, PEPPA PIG'S BIG SPLASH and More Set for Belgrade Theatre, May 2014
The Belgrade Theatre is thrilled to play host to a classic line-up of shows on the Main Stage this May including the West End sensation, Viva La Drag, the hit U.K concert show Rockin' On Heaven's Door and leading Beatles' tribute act, Beatlemania. We are also delighted to announce that an extra performance of Peppa Pig's Big Splash has been programmed for Thursday 22 May on the Main Stage to run alongside the all-new U.K tour of children's favourite Kidnapped on the B2 Stage this half term.
Fresh from its acclaimed West End run, the ultimate girls' night out, Viva La Drag explodes onto the Belgrade Main Stage for one outrageous night only on Monday 19 May.
Directed by Kylie Minogue's creative director and featuring original songs by Boy George, this dazzling new party production charts the rise of an all-male/female close harmony group as they battle through splits and solo hits to make the big time against a backdrop of backstabbing, love and tears.
Arriving just in time for half term, children's TV favourite Peppa Pig returns to the Belgrade stage in an all new interactive family adventure - Peppa Pig's Big Splash - on Wed 21 & Thursday 22 May. Due to overwhelming public demand, an extra performance of Peppa Pig will take place on Thursday 22 May at 4pm giving even more young theatregoers the chance to share in the fun!
This all-singing, all-dancing adventure features a host of super-cute puppets and brilliant sing-along songs as well as plenty of muddy puddles thrown in!
Completing the Belgrade's double-bill of family-friendly drama this half term, Kidnapped - A Family Adventure Tale sails onto the B2 stage from Tues 27 - Sat 31 May in a highly imaginative re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson's swashbuckling children's novel.
Set against the fierce social and political backdrop of 1750s Scotland, this gripping tale of shipwreck, intrigue and murder is jam-packed full of physical storytelling, swash-buckling swordplay and memorable music performed live on stage by a company of five actors and is the perfect half-term treat for young and old audiences alike.
Celebrating rock 'n' roll's foremost legends, Rockin' On Heaven's Door will visit the Belgrade Main Stage on Friday 23 May with spookily convincing portrayals of musical giants Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy and more.
This will be followed by leading Beatles' tribute show Beatlemania on Saturday 23 May - an authentic recreation of the trademark sounds of the original 'fab four' live on stage from their 'moptop' roots through to the psychedelia of Sgt Pepper through to the final years of Abbey Road and Let It Be.
Tickets for all of these shows are available now from the Box Office on 024 6755 3055 or via www.belgrade.co.uk where cheaper tickets are available.
