Cody Musical Theatre Company

22nd-24th March 2018

“Don’t Stop the Music”, our hugely popular 2015 production, received a particularly enthusiastic response from our audiences. We are therefore proud to present “Don’t Stop the Music 2: from stage to screen”, a sequel which offers a new, exciting and diverse programme with the definite feel good factor that will appeal to all generations. Our talented cast will perform an array of show-stopping hits from some of the world’s best-loved musicals as well as bringing to life some of our favourite songs from the movies.

We have a packed programme which will surprise and delight you. Act 1 takes a nostalgic tour of some of the greatest Broadway shows, from the wonderful tunes of Gershwin and the choreographic delights of Fosse to more current shows with “The Book of Mormon”, “Avenue Q” and the multi-award-winning musical, “Miss Saigon”.

Act 2 pays homage to great movie tunes from the likes of James Bond, “The Bodyguard” and “Moulin Rouge” to the epic “Les Misérables”.
