One of the UK’s leading creative hubs outside of London, audiences can enjoy musicals in Manchester both on tour and during their UK (or even world) premieres. Opera House Manchester in particular has celebrated a string of successes, with Back to the Future The Musical and & Juliet both opening at the venue prior to a West End transfer.
In fact, fans of musical theatre don't need to venture south to enjoy a good show. With hits including The Lion King, Mamma Mia! and a brand new production of The Bodyguard all ready to enjoy in Manchester in 2023, northern audiences are spoilt for choice, right on their doorstep.
