Never done by Tamworth Musical Society before, the Capitol Theatre has been transformed into an old-style vaudevillian theatre with plush, purple drapes and huge scenic cloths that set the scene for this iconic and hilarious show, now in it’s 50th Anniversary year.

This is your chance to see Natacha Curnow in this grand home-grown production – iconic, legendary, laugh-out-loud at Capitol Theatre from May 11 over 11 performances through until  May 26. Tickets, although selling well, are still available so get in quickly.

Get ready for a tribute to the late global superstar, putting the Boom Boom into your heart in the all-new production – Fastlove: A Tribute to George Michael at Tamworth Town Hall Friday, May 4 at 7.30pm.

The show is packed with crowd-pleasing anthems. From Wham! classics of the “new pop” revival to the chart-topping success of the ‘80s album Faith. All the awesome tunes of the nineties and noughties including the irresistible Flawless.
