This one’s for the dancing queens and the showmen – for those who love a great night out, but also love West End and Broadway shows full of song and dance. A series of musical theatre raves are set to tour the UK for “the stagiest night in town” as they take over nightclubs around the country. They’ll be bringing all the musical theatre hits, plenty of performances, and opportunities to prove yourself the biggest musical theatre fanatic.
The specially-themed rave nights debuted back in 2022, with a one-off event at Heaven. Following the rip-roaring success, a tour was the only logical next move! They’ll kick the tour off on April 2 at G-A-Y Heaven, with their Olivier Awards: Unofficial After Party. Following that, they’ll be trekking from Brighton to Manchester, to Coventry and Bath, and (almost) everywhere in between.
Of course, with dates for the musical theatre raves run from April all the way through to December, there’ll also be stopping off in Birmingham and other places closeby on their travels. So there’s sure to be a good night had by every musical theatre fan in the West Midlands.
What to expect
Obviously, ALL the songs from the biggest musicals – past and present. We’re talking Hamilton, Greatest Showman, Six, Mamma Mia!, Grease, Book of Mormon – you name it and it’ll be playing. DJs will be spinning tracks from these productions alongside live cameos from West End stars. They’ll also be hosting lip-sync battles so guests can take to the stage and strut their stuff to the biggest musical theatre hits.
If you’re heading along, be sure to dress up as everyone is invited to dust off their costumes for the evening. It’ll be a room full of Sandys, Dannys, Elsas, Mormons, founding fathers, and more. It’s a night of pure fun as everyone dances along and sings at full volume – just the way you wanted to when you last hit up the West End!
The musical theatre raves will hit CARGO in Coventry on May 20, but will return to the West Midlands on November 3 when it hits up The Mill in Birmingham. Plus there are plenty more dates around the UK in between.
