The Broadway, Peterborough.
BOX OFFICE: 01733 822225
The Broadway is currently operated by Bill Kenwright Limited.
In response to huge demand, Bill Kenwright who after the last season vowed he'd not return to Peterborough, 'unless the contract conditions were revised.' is now to present a new theatrical winter season of West End productions starting on 17th November.
Julian Bray, who at one time was a consultant to Peter Boizot during the early days of the Broadway, when it also had a big screen Cinema, negotiated against opposition from the then management, the showing of the very first Harry Potter movie said: "This is really good news for the City centre as Bill Kenwrights Broadway will see some 3,000 extra people every performance day visiting the City. They will be spending in bars and restaurants and probably doing their Christmas shopping in the City. Milton Keynes should be very worried."
The season opens with Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece Jesus Christ Superstar, the ground-breaking concept rock opera which tells the story of the last seven days of the life of Christ.
Next is the thriller And Then There Were None – recently voted ‘world’s favourite Agatha Christie’ – which sees 10 strangers lured to a remote island only to mysteriously die, one by one.
Something more heart-warming follows – a new production of The Sound Of Music, which promises to enchant the young and the young at heart with, all of their ‘Favorite Things’.
Family favourites Dr Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat, and, Miracle on 34th Street.
The Musicals are followed by something to get you ‘In The Mood’ for the festive season: Tommy Steele in The Glenn Miller Story, featuring a spectacular 16 piece orchestra plus sensational performers and dazzling choreography, led by London Palladium’s most successful ever star.
And, by huge popular demand, a musical favourite of theatregoers everywhere, Willy Russell’s multi-award winning Blood Brothers returns to Peterborough.
On 20th December ‘Christmas Magic’ will include Peterborough Male Voice Choir with Peterborough Voices, Youth Choir and Festival Orchestra under the direction of Will Prideaux.
In response to customer feedback, there will be no additional booking fees to pay on top of the stated ticket prices, and a range of concessions and discounts will be available.
