On Tuesday 25 September, some of our staff went to the official press night for the UK Tour of KINKY BOOTS, which opened in its hometown of Northampton!
The show follows Charlie Price who is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the Northampton 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 study new stilettos.
Callum Francis puts on the boots to play Lola following his award winning and critically acclaimed performances in Australia. He’s joined by Paula Lane as Lauren, best known for her role as Kylie Platt in Coronation Street and West End star Joel Harper-Jackson plays Charlie.
Here’s a first look at the tour cast in action!
We also took Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko to see the show in London – here’s what they thought!
Following the tour’s premiere in Northampton, the show plays right here in Wolverhampton – that mean’s we’re the first UK city outside of London and the show’s hometown to stage the show! If you still haven’t got tickets to join us from 16 – 27 October then you should maybe take a look here!
