Growing up with a Musical Theatre loving sister and even attending a performing arts school myself, I’ve always had an interest in all things stage.
I love going to see theatre shows and I’m lucky enough to have seen a fair few in my lifetime, most recently I saw School Of Rock in the West End and it was amazing. I need to go see it again although I’m gutted that David Fynn is no longer playing Dewey, he was the perfect guy for the role. Like better than Jack Black even. But I wish him all the best with his future career, I’ve no doubt he’ll be amazing whatever he does.
As I love the theatre so much and there are an abundance of musicals and plays out there, today I’ve decided to compile a bucket list of the ones I would most like to see in the not so distant future.
Starting with The Lion King. How have I not seen this yet already? Everyone whose seen it says how amazing it is and as an avid Disney fan and owner of a giant Simba I think it’s time I got myself a ticket. Who’s coming with me?
Secondly I would just love to see Wicked in the West End because again it’s one of those shows that everyone loves and says how brilliant it is. My sister has seen Wicked three times and I’m sure she would love to go again, so I’d be over the moon if we went to see it together. I’ll have to treat us both to tickets at some point. As my sister loves Wicked so much I’ve heard some of the songs from the show and they are all beautiful and powerful, I’m gonna listen to a couple after I write this post actually because uh, they are just too good.
Mamma Mia is another must see musical. I’m actually currently watching the film version as I type, how feel good is this musical?? It’s currently on at my local theatre but I wasn’t able to get tickets, fortunately though it’s still showing at the West End so I’ll be able to see it there.
One musical which always grabs my attention when I see it advertised is Kinky Boots, it looks like such a fun show and with songs by Cyndi Lauper it’s bound to be a joy to watch. I must go and see this asap!!!
This time not a musical, The Mousetrap is a play I really want to see even though I actually have not the faintest idea what it’s about, although I believe it to be a mystery type of play? I just want to see it because I’ve heard many people talk about how good it is and I’ve heard there’s a twist at the end which really intrigues me. I need to know what that is…
What’s your favourite theatre show? Have you ever seen any on my list? What would you most like to see? Let me know in the comments below.
Thank you for reading,
Wicked and the Lion King were both amazing! lovely read xx
I’ve never seen a musical but I’d be interested in lion King because that’s my favorite movie lol
Oh my gosh I’m ALL about musicals too, musicals and broadways I love them all! I saw the Lion King one WAYYYYY back when I was younger in NYC, I’m sure I loved it but its so hard to remember even what it was like. It’s one of the ones I need to go re-see as an adult now. Wicked and Mamma Mia also on my list. I’d love to see Annie or Hairspray as well!
Mamma Mia and Wicked are such beautiful musicals. Wicked is so powerful and Mamma Mia’s music is everything 😊
I just neeed to see Wicked, I’ve heard ‘Defying Gravity’ and can imagine it being very powerful live on stage. Yes, Mamma Mia’s music is so positive and fun. Thanks for your comment 🙂

I do hope you watch Wicked. ‘Defying Gravity’ sung on stage is just a complete and different world for music.
