9 -5 The Musical
tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

I know this is playing in London at the moment   Dolly  Parton is behind  it.  I do not know if it is the same production coming to MK but think it is quite possible as I know it does not have that many weeks to run in London.

Kinky Boots
Inspired by true events, this joyous story of Brit grit to high-heeled hit was brought to life on the big screen in 2005, with Oscar® nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor as the dazzling Lola, before being transformed into a hit Broadway musical. With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles) this striking musical proudly proves that sometimes the best way to fit in is to stand out!
With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this fabulous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.
Kinky Boots takes you from the factory floor to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price, is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the shoe factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

English National Ballet – Le Corsaire

These tickets are not as good as I had hoped for, even though I rang very shortly after they had gone on sale.  They are in the circle and cost £17.00
ENB are the only company with this ballet in their repertoire.  I personally love their annual visit.  We would be guaranteed wonderful dancing, costumes and amazing music with a huge orchestra.

SIX

The most uplifting piece of new British musical theatre’
(✭✭✭✭✭ The Evening Standard)
is the phenomenon everyone is losing their head over!
Critically acclaimed across the UK with a sound-track storming up the UK pop charts, the sell-out intoxicating Tudor take-off is back!
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.
This show runs straight through with no interval. (Lasting about 75 mins.

Matthew Bourne’s Ballet of The Red Shoes
I was nto sure about this as we only saw it in 2017 but knowing how keen some people are on his work I have gone ahead.  The tickets are in the circle and cost £30.00 which is a saving of £10.00
It will be necessary for 10 people to want to go to maintain this booking.  Please remember reserving a ticket is not  an absolute commitment.  That comes nearer when I have to actually pay for the tickets.
