Broadway Showtunes to return for summer show

IT’S been part of the Bournemouth summer show calendar for more than 20 years, and 150 talented musical theatre students are gearing up to take to the stage once again for Broadway Showtunes.

Backed by a live West End orchestra, the production is staged at Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre by local, not-for-profit organisation BIGLITTLE Theatre School, to showcase upcoming talent.

This year’s show is particularly special as it reunites two former cast members in the creative team. The production is directed by West End star Nick Hayes, supported by associate director Kelly Knight, who last appeared at the same theatre together 20 years ago as students in the 2002 show. Kelly is now Youth Theatre creative director at BIGLITTLE Theatre School and is delighted to be working again with her old pal.

This year’s show includes hits from current west end musicals including Olivier Award Winner Back to The Future, Bonnie & Clyde, South Pacific, Catch Me If You Can and Saturday Night Fever.
