Broadway smashes, West End hits, stars of Strictly and the return of Aberdeen’s crime writing festival …
These are just some of the treats in store as new shows are announced for His Majesty’s Theatre.
Leading the charge will be smash musical Jersey Boys, the return of Proclaimers hit Sunshine On Leith, a chance to see the haunting stage version of The Kite Runner and a poisoned cocktail party to launch next year’s Granite Noir festival.
The new shows are in the latest brochure from Aberdeen Performing Arts.
Jane Spiers, APA chief executive, said: “The launch of a new brochure is always an exciting time and we are pleased to have more wonderful shows and concerts lined up for Aberdonian audiences.
“Sunshine On Leith and Jersey Boys are two of the best feel-good musicals, while The Kite Runner brings mesmerising storytelling, power and emotion to the stage.”
Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, will be at HMT from August 14, next year, while the Proclaimers-based hit Sunshine On Leith will run from May 15 to 19.
The Kite Runner, a West End version of Khaled Hosseini’s novel set in Afghanistan, will be at the theatre from May 15.
Dance fans will enjoy Rip It Up: Dancing Through The 50s with Strictly’s Jay McGuinness, Natalie Lowe and Louis Smith, on September 4.
And crime writing fans can enjoy the poisoned cocktail party on November 26, hosted by Dr Kathyrn Harkup, author of A Is For Arsenic. The event will mark the launch of Granite Noir 2018.
Tickets for the new shows go on sale to Friends of APA next Thursday and to the public on August 1.
