There’s no need to dress up if you’re going to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in the next few days.

But, if you do you will be hard matched to rival the stylish and slick designs sported by the cast of the all-singing and dancing ‘Top Hat,’ which is on until Saturday, November 15.

This stage adaptation of the 1935 musical comedy, which starred Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, has already wowed West End audiences, winning three Oliver Awards, and now stops off in Nottingham as part of a year-long, 24-venue UK tour,

While this must-see show is in town, music and dance fans will delight in a superb feast of entertainment, whether it’s a showcase of songs from Irving Berlin or standout dance routines that echo the golden age of Hollywood.

Reprising the roles of Fred and Ginger are Alan Burkitt and Charlotte Gooch bringing youthful enthusiasm and elan to the roles of Broadway star Jerry Travers who heads to London to star in a new show - only to meet and fall for society girl Dale Tremont.
