Winner of no less than 3 Laurence Olivier awards including Best New Musical, ‘Top Hat’ brings the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age and the glorious, tap-dancing magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the stage in one of the greatest dance musicals of all time.

Based on the 1935 movie of the same name, ‘Top Hat’ is packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits including ‘Cheek to Cheek’, ‘Top Hat’, ‘White Tie & Tails’, ‘Let’s Face the Music & Dance’ and ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ and tells the story of Broadway sensation Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl Dale Tremont. In a riotous mistaken-identity plot, Dale Tremont believes that her ardent pursuer Jerry Travers – who is about to open in a big London show – is married to a friend of hers.  Add in a bumbling Producer, a meddling English valet and a lovelorn fashion designer and the fun begins!

An uplifting and hilarious romantic comedy celebrating the very best of 1930s song, style and romance, ‘Top Hat’ dazzles with breath taking dance numbers and a love story guaranteed to set the pulse racing!

We are delighted to welcome back Director and Choreographer Stephen Mear.
