Synopsis

Share:

The world premiere of a new musical that will simply sweep you off your feet!

An Officer and a Gentleman – The Musical is based on the Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere. Its feel-good soundtrack includes the hit song from the movie Up Where We Belong along with many 80’s classic anthems including Girls Just Want to Have FunLivin’ On A PrayerHeart of GlassMaterial Girl, Don’t Cry Out LoudI Was Made for Lovin’ You and The Final Countdown.

Zack Mayo is in training to become a US Navy Pilot. When he rolls into boot camp with a bit too much of a swagger, drill Sergeant Foley doesn’t make life easy for him. When he falls for local girl Paula Pokrifki and tragedy befalls his friend and fellow candidate, Zack realises the importance of love and friendship and finds the courage to be himself and win the heart of the woman he loves. It’s only then he can truly become both an Officer and a Gentlemen.

With direction by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (Scrooge the Musical, Sunset Boulevard, Grease), choreography by Kate Prince (Into The Hoods, ZooNation), and musical supervision by Tony Award-winning Sarah Travis (Sweeney Todd, Sister Act), this inspiring, breathtakingly romantic musical celebrates triumph over adversity and features one of the most iconic romantic scenes ever portrayed on screen. Let Love Lift You Up where you belong!

Recommended for ages 14+. This production contains scenes of an adult nature and strong language throughout.

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
