2022 – Kinky Boots

Based on an unlikely but true story, with its origins in a 1999 BBC2 documentary, “Kinky Boots” the musical became a Tony and Olivier award winning sensation! Price and Sons is a struggling Northampton shoe factory, where the ‘son’, Charlie Price is about to abandon the family firm to its fate until the arrival of Lola, a fabulous drag queen in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory, and some attitudes, around, this mismatched pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible. A show full of heart, hope, 16 original songs and huge celebration of performance, togetherness, high-heels and glitter!
