A jukebox musical featuring the works of Take That is coming to Brighton.

Greatest Days will take to the stage at the Theatre Royal in Brighton from Monday, October 9 to Saturday, October 14.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Take That’s first ever UK number-one single Pray, the production features more than 15 record-breaking Take That songs alongside a heart-warming and comical story of love, loss and laughter from award-winning writer Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots).

The musical follows a group of five best friends in the 1990s who are obsessed with their favourite boy band. The girls reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time in what could be the Greatest Days of their lives.

Greatest Days was originally produced as The Band by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers + Take That. The UK tour of The Band originally opened at Manchester Opera House in September 2017, breaking box office records along the way.
