COME WHAT MAY Will Embark on UK Tour This Fall

Come What May, a tribute to the greatest movie musicals of all time including Moulin Rouge, Rocketman, The Greatest Showman, A Star is Born and Burlesque, will head out on a major national theatre tour this September, playing across the UK including at the Mercury Theatre Colchester, the Mayflower Theatre Southampton, the New Theatre Royal Lincoln and Buxton Opera House, where the show kicks off on 15 September.

Featuring the sensational BGT winner Jai McDowall alongside a cast of West End theatre performers, the musical extravaganza is a guaranteed 'Spectacular, Spectacular' evening of much-loved songs, pure glitz and old-time glamour.

Travel back in time as the children of the revolution take you into the sexy, disreputable and glamorous underworld of Paris at the Moulin Rouge. Have a musical peep into the flamboyant world of Elton John, journey on into the imagination of the original showman P.T Barnum before heading to the bright lights of Los Angeles as well as the kitsch glamour of Sunset Boulevard's Burlesque Lounge.

Come What May is packed with timeless classics from Moulin Rouge including Come What May, Your Song, Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend, Roxanne and Lady Marmalade as well as hits from other iconic movie musicals from Come Alive, Saturday Night's Alright and Shallow to Show Me How You Burlesque.

This all-singing, all-dancing show is an unforgettable combination of dreams, adventure and above all - love!

Jai McDowall heads a cast of 12. He won the fifth season of Britain's Got Talent, capturing the hearts of a nation with his powerhouse vocals, natural charm and versatile song interpretations. Jai appeared at the 2011 Royal Variety Performance and has since toured the UK with his own show, as well as appearing in the theatre shows Mad About the Musicals and Les Musicals as well as in London at Live at Zedel.

Come What May is presented by Sweeney Entertainments and Sisco Productions. The show is created by Sisco Productions with choreography by Scott Coldwell and arrangements/musical Supervision by James Doughty.

Co-founded by Julie and Peter Sweeney, Sweeney Entertainments has been providing a wide repertoire of top-quality touring shows for theatre and corporate events for over fifteen years both in the UK and internationally and now boasts a repertoire of fourteen touring productions.
