Director and choreographer Amy Williams said: “We have all missed live performance so much over the past 18 months and wanted to showcase all of the amazing West End shows that were so greatly missed when they closed abruptly last March.

"This brilliant mix of musicals really highlights the range and talent we have in Stourbridge and we’re so glad to be back on stage, having postponed our 2021 show Kinky Boots.
