Booking Now: An Officer and a Gentleman Coming to the Bristol Hippodrome on Tour 2018


It’s always exciting to get a big premiere in Bristol, so we are looking forward to the world premiere no less of An Officer and Gentleman, which will be coming to the Bristol Hippodrome next year.

The brand-new musical is of course based on the 80’s Oscar winning film starring Richard Gere.

The show will feature hit songs such as Up Where We Belong along,  Alone, Don’t Cry Out Loud and Girls Just Want to Have Fun amongst others.

Director Nikolai Foster said: “An Officer and a Gentleman delicately charts the lives of working class, military folk in America in the early 1980s; important lives, often pushed to the margins of society. We are proud to be working alongside the film’s creator Douglas Day Stewart, producer Jamie Wilson and an incredible creative team to present this beautiful and inspiring story. This brand-new adaptation includes iconic 80s songs which create an entertaining, uplifting and original piece of musical theatre, we are excited to share this world premiere with our audiences here in Leicester and across the UK.”

The show will open at the theatre on Monday 30 July and run until Saturday 04 August 2018.
