Online PR News – 26-November-2010 – – All the magic of the West Endâ€™s hottest shows is available on a tremendous range of great-value London Theatre breaks for 2011, available as coach trips, rail breaks and Make-Your-Own-Way self-drive ticket and hotel packages from specialist operator Newmarket Holidays.
The capitalâ€™s thriving Theatreland is home to a host of hit musicals, including firm favourites â€˜Mamma Miaâ€™, Queen-fest â€˜We Will Rock Youâ€™, Billy Elliot the Musical and Disneyâ€™s extraordinary The Lion King. Fans of â€˜the Phantomâ€™ can choose between the â€˜originalâ€™ tear jerker â€“ still packing them in â€“ or the storyâ€™s stirring sequel Love Never Dies, which sees the drama transported across the Atlantic. Two shows featuring pop classics â€“ Jersey Boys and the joyous Grease â€“ pay homage to 1950s America, and then thereâ€™s the timeless, sweeping drama of Les MisÃ©rables, the divine decadence of Chicago, and the various foot-tapping and hip-swinging delights of Flashdance the Musical and Dirty Dancing â€“ both superb stage versions of classic movies â€“ to savour and enjoy.
When it comes to remakes from the silver screen, however, nothing has been more eagerly awaited than Andrew Lloyd Webberâ€™s The Wizard of Oz. This new show brings Dorothy, Toto and the Yellow Brick Road Over the Rainbow and into the London Palladium in 2011, with musical theatreâ€™s greatest star, Michael Crawford, as The Wizard. Tickets are selling faster than a Kansas tornado for this latest addition to the West Endâ€™s glittering offerings.
Newmarketâ€™s London Theatre coach trips, which run from pick-up points across the country, include return travel, Saturday night in a four-star hotel with leisure facilities, and transfers into the West End for the selected show. Prices start at Â£95 per person, and even include transfers back into central London for Sunday sightseeing and shopping. A tour manager is on hand at the hotel to help point theatregoers in the right direction, and Newmarket offers â€˜Deals on Mealsâ€™ in a couple of West End eateries.
Newmarketâ€™s Make Your Own Way self-drive packages include a night in a choice of well-located hotels in the capital and a show ticket. Stay Saturday to enjoy a classic â€˜Night on the Townâ€™ or take advantage of some great discounts on top price tickets on the operatorâ€™s â€˜Friday Night Specialsâ€™. Prices start at Â£68 for a Saturday night at â€˜Ozâ€™ prequel Wicked, with a â€˜Friday Night Specialâ€™ price including a top seat at blood-curdling The Woman in Black at Â£69.95. All other prices vary according to hotel and show/ticket choice.
Those electing to â€˜let the train take the strainâ€™ can also choose Friday â€˜Specialâ€™ or Saturday â€˜classicâ€™ theatre breaks by rail, with prices starting at Â£85.00.
