Joe McElderry, Neil McDermott, Kate Robbins, Emily Tierney and Amelle Berrabah are to star in the world premiere of new 80s musical Club Tropicana.

The performance will be coming to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from July 8-13.

Written by Michael Gyngell, this is a summer adventure of love in the sun, with a soundtrack of smash-hit pop classics, all performed live on stage.

It takes a fun-packed trip back in time to the electric 80s when hair was big, shoulders were padded, girls (and boys) just wanted to have fun and mobile phones were shaped like bricks and weighed a tonne!

Welcome to the vibrant Club Tropicana Hotel - the 1980s answer to Love Island - where the drinks are free and the whole family is invited to join the ultimate holiday musical.

When a budding bride and groom get cold feet, they each decide to jet off to sunnier climes and feel the heat - but little do they know they’ve checked into the same hotel...The sizzling summer season at the Club Tropicana sees drinks flowing and tans glowing. Will our young lovers decide to go through with the wedding? Will the hotel inspectors (finally) get their way and close the resort, or will the staff save the day? All will be revealed in hilarious style, to an irresistible soundtrack of some of the most iconic, chart-topping acts from the 80s, including ABC, Cyndi Lauper, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, a-ha, Culture Club, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, Bucks Fizz and Depeche Mode.
