The West End Drive In will bring your fave musicals to life

A drive-in series celebrating the best West End musicals is taking place this spring.

The West End Drive In is taking over The Drive In at Troubadour Meridian Water in London and tickets are available from See Tickets.

Each show will feature songs and cast members from the likes of Wicked, SIX, Heathers, Chicago, Hamilton and Les Misérables.

Theatre fans can head to the drive-in on weekends throughout April and May to watch your favourite musicals celebrated after the West End was forced to close over a year ago.

There will be a Hamilton special on 8 May with Cleve September, Trevor Dion Nicholas and Dom Hartley Harris performing tracks from the popular soundtrack.

Another that’ll make you go green with envy if you’re not there is the Wicked special on 15 May with cast members Oliver Tompsett, Alice Fearn, Aaron Sidwell.

There will also be a Rent reunion as members of the 20th anniversary cast and recent Hopemill Theatre production reunite for a 25th anniversary celebration.

They’ll take over an ‘abandoned lot’ for real with Layton Williams, Ryan O’Gorman, Blake Anderson & Shanay Holmes appearing.

Plus the event is following government guidelines including keeping vehicles at least two metres apart and you can have food and drink safely delivered to your car.

This month a drive-in drag tour also kicked off at venues across the UK with a lineup including Tayce, Baga Chipz, Divina de Campo and Ginny Lemon.

The drag tour will head to Birmingham, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow through the end of April and into May and tickets are still available here.
