A musical show that is like a rock mix-tape featuring classic 1980s hits is coming to Milton Keynes Theatre following a three-year West End run.

The songs are all woven into a fun story about a small town girl and a big city rocker falling in love.

Among the hits performed live on stage are We Built This City, The Final Countdown, I Wanna Know What Love Is and Don’t Stop Believing.

The stage show has been a hit all over the world and a film of the musical was produced in 2012 starring Tom Cruise, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The show stars Ben Richards, who used to play Bruno Milligan in Footballers’ Wives and has a track record of starring roles in West End shows including Guys and Dolls, Night Fever and The Full Monty.

The production also features Noel Sullivan, who was once in Hear’Say and has appeared in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, We Will Rock You and Grease.

The show is on at Milton Keynes Theatre from August 18 to 23.
