Club Tropicana: The Musical set for Edinburgh Playhouse this June

Joe McElderry stars in brand-new 80s fuelled musical from the producers of Hairspray

Edinburgh Playhouse are asking you to 'Relax' and leave your passport at home as the ultimate all-singing, all-dancing staycation comes to the venue this June. Club Tropicana is the new musical from the producers of touring shows Hairspray and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The show, which stars X-Factor winner Joe McElderry, will run at the venue from Tue 11–Sat 15 Jun. Tickets are on sale now.

Come and celebrate the music of the 1980s as the performers welcome you to Club Tropicana Hotel, where the drinks are free and a summer of love in the sun awaits the characters.

Joe McElderry (X Factor and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) will be joined on stage by EastEnders star Neil McDermott (also The Sound of Music), Kate Robbins (Spitting Image, Dinnerladies), Emily Tierney (Wicked, The Wizard of Oz) and former Sugababe star Amelle Berrabah, making her musical theatre debut.

The show is soundtracked by some of the greatest hits of the era like 'Just Can't Get Enough', 'Take On Me', 'The Look Of Love', 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', and 'Relax' performed live on stage.

The musical calls at the Edinburgh venue following shows at Sunderland Empire and Manchester Opera House before moving on to Venue Cymru in Llandudno.

Club Tropicana: The Musical runs at the Edinburgh Playhouse from Tue 11–Sat 15 Jun. Tickets for the shows are on sale now.
