Taking you on a whistle stop tour from the heart of London’s theatre land to the glitz of Broadway, the critically acclaimed Mad About The Musicals is back - celebrating the very best songs from the shows we all know and love.

With a host of your favourite numbers from the pen of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Boublil & Schonberg, the talented cast will evoke the true spirit of the stage to bring you the very best show in town.

From the bittersweet ‘All I Ask Of You’ to the powerful ‘One Day More’, sit back and enjoy two hours of unforgettable London and New York favourites, brought to you by a cast direct from the West End, including Gareth Gates and Michael Courtney.

It will be at the Beck Theatre in Hayes on Tuesday, October 20.

Gareth Gates rose to fame in the inaugural Pop Idol TV show in 2001/2. He became a household name making it to the most memorable of these finals, when he went up against Will Young.  He went on to sell over 5 million records worldwide and have hits across the globe. His version of Unchained Melody sold over a million copies in the UK and is the third best-selling single of the Noughties, whilst Anyone of Us was an international hit.  He is also the youngest ever-male solo artist to debut at number 1.  

More recently Gareth has had a hugely enjoyable and successful career in musical theatre and has appeared in Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

He said: “Mad About The Musicals is a show that will appeal to many people, as even if you don’t know the individual musicals, you will definitely know the songs.

"There has been some amazing music to come out of theatre shows in the last few decades, including my very favourite Les Miserables, and we will be paying homage to them.

"Some shows I have appeared in and some will be new songs for me to sing; I’ve never sung anything from Jesus Christ Superstar and I get to sing the amazing ‘Heaven on their Minds’ in this production.  Come and see us in Hayes -  I’m so looking forward to it!”
