For the Dreamers and Hopeless Romantics


If you know someone who’s a sucker for all things romance and comedy, the ones who watch The Holiday and Love, Actually each year without fail: Waitress is the show to book.

Jump across the pond to Joe’s Diner and meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams her way out of a loveless marriage. Cue the cute doctor from out of town and Jenna’s life is turned upside down. But with the support of her workmates, Becky and Dawn and a generous helping of pie, she looks to overcome the challenges she faces.

For the Bookworms and Leaders of the Pack

Inspired by the beloved Roald Dahl book, the show follows an extraordinary girl armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Featuring original songs by comedian, Tim Minchin, there’s a reason why it’s been at the Cambridge Theatre for over eight years and won countless awards.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

The show had quite a busy summer this year and now its back for another season in 2020. We follow Joseph as he’s sold into slavery by his 11 brothers, ends up in jail after refusing the advances of the Potiphar’s wife, discovers the unique ability to interpret dreams and becomes Pharoah’s right-hand man. All wrapped up in two hours of song.

For the Eccentric and the Loveable

Be More Chill 

It’s simple: there’s a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world).

Garnering an army of fans from its time off and on Broadway, Be More Chill is the newest musical sensation that’s about to get stuck in your head.
