WELCOME TO YOUR ALL NEW SEASON GUIDE The latest brochure for the Palace Theatre & Opera House, Manchester, is packed with everything you need to know about the exciting shows on offer over the coming months, including the very best of ballet, musical theatre, drama and comedy – and the world premier of a spectacular supernatural love story! English National Ballet round off their 60th Anniversary with the dramatic Romeo & Juliet, while Northern Ballet Theatre bring their festive delight that is The Nutcracker. Dig out those suspenders because The Rocky Horror Show is back! Pantos on Strike – starring Paddy McGuinness and Jonathan Wilkes is a new twist on the traditional panto, but is strictly for grown up boys and girls! Panto looks set to be a cracker with Tina O’Brien starring as Snow White alongside Emmerdale’s Andy Devine as the Henchman. December also brings We Will Rock You. Packed with 24 Queen songs, the hit show is back following last year’s sell-out run. We are delighted to announce that 2010 brings the eagerlyawaited return of the world-wide phenomenon Mamma Mia, with the stage show that started it all and we also welcome the touching bare-all tale of the Calendar Girls. Finally we are proud to reveal the new musical Ghost – based on the much-loved Oscar-winning movie – will be opening at the Opera House, before it goes to the West End. With music by Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and an award-winning production team, don’t miss your chance to see Ghost first! We hope you enjoy reading this brochure the hard part will be picking what to see!

‘A FANTASTIC SHOW. A GREAT ALL ROUND SPECTACLE...YOU LEAVE THE SHOW ON A REAL HIGH!’ GRANADA TV

‘KNOCK OUT PERFORMANCES A REAL TREAT’ BBC MANCHESTER

The worldwide smash-hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton returns to rock Manchester this Christmas!! Since 2002 over 11 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled to see this awe-inspiring production. With 24 of Queen’s biggest hits delivered in a show that boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances, this theatrical phenomenon is not to be missed! When it became news some years back that one of Britain’s most phenomenally successful comedy writers, Ben Elton, was teaming up with legends of rock, Queen, for a musical, we all wondered what such a unique collaboration would turn out. Especially when screen icon Robert de Niro became so impressed after attending the original workshop that his company Tribeca came on board. The result was a new chapter in theatre history – We Will Rock You a rock ‘theatrical’ which defied all comparisons and has gone on to become a global smash hit. ’THE AUDIENCE HAS THE RIGHT TO EXPECT SOMETHING AS FABULOUS AND GRAND AND THEATRICAL AS THE MUSIC ITSELF’ BEN ELTON Includes 24 of Queen’s greatest hits:

Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Another One Bites The Dust, We Are the Champions and We Will Rock You Photos of previous casts

Bruce Joel Rubin adapts his Oscar-winning screenplay for the stage.
