The Tulsa Time Band is a realisation of a dream for me. I have always loved the songs of Don Williams. He had been a favourite of my parents and I had seen him live many times with my father. To be surrounded by such an enormously talented group of musicians, recreating the Don Williams sound, is pure joy for me. It is pure joy for all of us in the Tulsa Time Band, and we hope it will be equally so for you....Buy tickets

When "Lady" Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). The two could not be more different - Sandra is a fish-out-of-water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where she starts finding her feet. Also stars Joanna Lumley.

After the hugely successful double sell out run of The Full Monty, The Masqueraders return to the Athenaeum to bring the stage adaptation of the 20th Century Fox film 9 to 5.

Feisty, fun and oh so fabulous, this is a hilarious musical adaptation of the seminal hit film with an upbeat score by the legendary Dolly Parton which follows three female co-workers pushed to the boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Together Violet, Doralee and Judy form an unlikely friendship & partnership to live their fantasy & take control of the office and achieve the ultimate revenge by giving their boss the boot. 9 to 5 is a jubilant musical about friendship, female empowerment and getting ahead in the Rolodex era of the late 1970s.

Featuring original numbers from Dolly Parton's Oscar, Tony® and Grammy Award nominated score including Backwoods Barbie, Shine Like the Sun and the original hit song 9 to 5.

Leave the daily grind behind, grab your friends and come to the theatre for a night of outrageousness, romance and a lot of heart!

9 to 5 The Musical contains some adult themes, language and depictions of drug use. Recommended for audiences: 14 years and older.

This colourful, musical extravaganza tells the story of the orphaned and penniless, but ambitious, P T Barnum (Hugh Jackman), who will always be remembered as the man with wild imagination who put the show into business.

Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, he opens a wax museum, but soon focuses on the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary live acts on the circus stage.

Some will call his collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he loses sight of the most important aspect of his life - his family.
