Event information

Running Time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including interval)

Please note that this production may contain short periods of flashing and strobe lighting effects.

Group bookings and concessions available. Please contact Box Office for full details.

Named performer info: Leeds Heritage Theatres cannot guarantee the appearance of any named artist and refunds will not be given on this basis.

*Prices include a £3 booking fee. Where applicable, a £1 charge for postage will also be payable.

Socially distanced performances: we are operating a ‘chessboard style’ seating arrangement in certain areas of the auditorium, whereby every other seat will be left empty. This does mean that you won’t be sat directly next to members of your party but there will only be one seat in-between. We ask that you do not move into the empty seat as this has a knock-on effect to the people in the next row.
