An incredible line-up of shows coming to The Alexandra, Birmingham in 2023, will continue to thrill and delight audiences; with the best of local talent, brand-new productions and shows carving out new audiences with fresh stories.

Cutting-edge shows including the National Theatre’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane, from the imagination of Neil Gaiman, famous for Coraline, Good Omens and The Sandman, and is a thrilling adventure of fantasy and childhood friendships, starring EastEnders’ Charlie Brooks.  Heathers The Musical returns to The Alexandra stage in May, based on the cult 80s film starring Christian Slater and Winona Rider, where it might kill to be a nobody, but it is murder being a somebody. Home I’m Darling, arriving in April, with BAFTA-winner Jessica Ransom (Doc Martin) leading the cast in this thought-provoking new comedy by Laura Wade (Posh/The Riot Club) about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife.

A host of brand-new productions are heading to the stage, including Pretty Woman, where The Alexandra will be the opening venue of the UK and Ireland tour, as the show graduates from London’s West End, and makes its Birmingham premiere in October. Based on the smash hit film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, it features a blazing rock score from Bryan Adams. Following hot on the heels of this in November is Quiz, based on the infamous scandal of the cheating contestant on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. The Birds & the Bees is starring comic, writer and actress Helen Lederer (Absolutely Fabulous) and Michael Starke, known and loved from his role as Sinbad in Brookside.

Fan favourites returning include beloved musicals Annie, starring Craig Revel Horwood as Miss Hannigan and based on the beloved childhood film, and another 80s classic film adaptation, Dirty Dancing, returns to take the stage by storm with THAT dance move. Plays from well-loved British writers will also light up the stage including, for families, David Walliams’ Demon Dentist and Peter James’ Wish You Were Dead, the latest show in the primetime ITV Grace series, starring Coronation Street’s Katie McGlynn and Game of Thrones’ Clive Mantle.

The Alexandra will roll out the red carpet for local talent, including for BMOS who will bring not one but two amazing shows including 9 to 5 The Musical and Peter Pan, and the Alexandra’s annual Stage Experience production is back with Bring It On based on the Y2K cheerleading film starring Kirsten Dunst. Stage Experience gives the best of West Midlands talent the chance to shine on stage in a world-class production, helping the next generation of Midlands talent get in to theatrical careers.

One night highlights include stars from the Platinum-selling 1970s Philadelphia group The Stylistics and Diversity will come to The Alexandra in November. The best of British comedians – Frankie Boyle, Tim Vine and Jimmy Carr -will bring the laughter, and Strictly Come Dancing’s Johannes Radebe will return with a brand-new show.
