Sing-along version of the classic musical starring Doris Day and Howard Keel.
Beat away the January blues by joining us (in good voice) for a sing-a-long version of the 1953 classic western musical, Calamity Jane. Doris Day is spectacular as the eponymous hero. We follow Jane’s life in the Wild West, her saloon and her romance with Wild Bill Hickock.
Frontiers woman Calamity Jane (Day) would rather hit targets than chase men - until she falls for Wild Bill Hickok (Keel), who would rather shoot Indians than chase after a tomboy like Calamity Jane. The film features the Oscar-winning song 'Secret Love'.

Get ready to moonwalk the night away at a show who’s star performer ‘Navi’ once earned a standing ovation from Michael Jackson himself.
King Of Pop – The Legend Continues is currently on tour in the UK and is taking British theatres by storm. The superb production stars the world’s No.1 MJ impersonator ‘Navi’ who was actually invited to perform at two of Michael Jackson’s birthday parties in LA and New York. Michael not only applauded Navi but also gave him a standing ovation and invited the impersonator to spend a day at his home ‘Neverland’. The pair remained close and due to Navi’s uncanny resemblance to the star, he was often hired by Michael to act as a decoy to distract mobs of fans and press.
Navi has since continued to work at the highest level performing in a whopping 57 different countries and is now back in the UK for a national theatre tour along with his incredible live band and dancers. Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a show the whole family will enjoy.
