Smash-hit musicals Hairspray and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will kick-start their UK tours in June 2021.

Hairspray The Musical will open at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 24 June 2021. The show will then travel to: Cheltenham (5-10 July); Southampton (26-31 July); Manchester (2-14 August), Sheffield (16-21 August); Ipswich (23-28 August); Aylesbury (30 August- 4 September); Edinburgh (6-11 September); Bradford (3-18 September); Brighton (20-25 September);  Birmingham (27 September – 2 October); Leicester (4 – 9 October); Nottingham (11 – 16 October); Wolverhampton (18 – 23 October); Dublin (25 – 30 October); Belfast (1 – 6 November); Woking (15 – 20 November); Milton Keynes Theatre (29 November – 4 December) and Blackpool (13 December – 1 January).

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert The Musical officially re-opens at Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham on 23 June 2021. The show then travels to Leeds (5 – 10 July); Hull (12 – 17 July); Oxford (19 – 24 July); Bath (26 – 31 July); Northampton (2 – 7 August); Glasgow (9 – 14 August); Wimbledon (16 – 21 August); Birmingham (30 August – 4 September); Southend (6 – 11 September); Leicester (13 – 18 September); Bristol (27 September – 2 October) and Southampton (4 – 9 October). It is hoped Priscilla will then return for a West End season.

Producer Mark Goucher said: “As the manager of Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham I am acutely aware that venues up and down the UK are crying out for shows. It is vital that we take the necessary steps to get performances going again. It is therefore a delight to be able to announce that two of my shows, under the guise of Mark Goucher Productions will be coming to a theatre near you from this summer. We will, of course, closely monitor all advice coming from the Government and if the start dates need to be delayed we have contingency plans in place to be able to move the starting venue for each show to one later in the tour schedule. ”

Following recent Government announcements on theatrical performances, Producers have been quick to put plans in place for many touring and West End productions. Goucher has been able to remount both productions in quick fashion thanks to a loan from the Cultural Recovery Fund.

Casting for both productions will be revealed soon.
