Live theatre is set to return to the city next month

Date published: 13 September 2020

A specifically designed and certified COVID-safe theatre venue is set to open in Manchester next month. 

The DriveINSIDE Theatre has released its autumn programme with an exciting variety of top-quality shows to suit everyone.

If you are fans of The Greatest Showman, then The Most Spectacular Show is for you.

 This is a family-friendly show featuring West End singers, international dancers, breath-taking aerialists and acrobats as well as spectacular fire effects and pyrotechnics, accompanied by a soundtrack to have you singing and dancing along in your dedicated area.

Another family-friendly option is Got Talent Stars Live.

Featuring a line-up of Britain’s Got Talent favourites, including Lost Voice Guy, Ben Hart, Steve Royle, Nabil Abdul Rashid and compered by 2017 Golden Buzzer Act Daliso Chapronda, this will be a fabulous evening of variety and comedy.

Fans of music and musicals have a number of options, including Elton John: It’s A Little Bit Funny, Walk Like A Man, My! My! Abba The Musical, The Rat Pack, Swingin’ At The Stands!, Queen by Candlelight, Power Ballads Live! and The Ultimate Girl Power.

For the glamour lovers, there is the fabulous La Voix, who delivers side splitting comedy, huge vocals and mesmerising impressions, dressed in sequins and jewels.

And for followers of Rocky, dress up and partake in two special performances of An Immersive Rocky Experience.

The DriveINSIDE Theatre, based in central Manchester, is COVID compliant and is the world’s first theatre that you drive inside.

It provides an immersive experience for 800 people and seating for every audience member.

Simply drive in, get out of the car on the driver’s side and take your seats, which are at the side of your vehicle.

Unlike other drive in venues, this one is covered by Europe’s largest megatent, so no need to worry about that famous Manchester rain - the show will go on!
