Take That's The Band is heading to Wolverhampton

Take That fans rejoice! Tim Firth's new musical The Band, featuring the music of Take That, is heading to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre in early 2019. 

The Band opened at Manchester Opera House in September 2017 to critical and public acclaim. The show is produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, as well as Take That members Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams.

The musical stars Rachel Lumberg as Rachel, Alison Fitzjohn as Claire, Emily Joyce as Heather, Jayne McKenna as Zoe, as well as AJ Bentley, Nick Carsberg, Curtis T Johns, Yazdan Qafouri and Sario Solomon, collectively known as Five To Five, winners of BBC’s Let It Shine, as The Band.
The Band is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 

25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.

The Band is directed by Kim Gavin and Jack Ryder, designed by Jon Bausor and choreographed by Kim Gavin, with lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, video design by Luke Halls and sound design by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster.
