It is directed by Paul Spicer with choreography by Leanne Harwood and pays homage to the greatest movie soundtrack of all time.

Paul said: “The atmosphere is always electric. We totally encourage our audiences to sing and dance and immerse themselves in this incredible music.

“I watch people leave the theatre on a real high. This is a multi-award winning soundtrack steeped in nostalgia. I challenge anyone to come along and not have a fantastic time.”

The show at Kettering will kick off a UK wide tour of the tribute show which runs throughout the rest of September, October and the beginning of November.
