The Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has revealed their line-up for the 2021/22 season, as many big names are expected to come to town.

The theatre, like many others, has suffered tremendously since last March, but with a stellar rota of stars heading towards central Buckinghamshire, they are hoping to make up for lost time.

Feel-good phenomenon Hairspray will kick-off the season between Monday, September 6 to Saturday, September 11, and is in good company with Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical from Tuesday, September 28 to Saturday, October 2, which will star Louise Redknapp.
