UK tour dates have been revealed for new jukebox musical NOW That’s What I Call A Musical.

Directed and choreographed by Strictly’s Craig Revel Horwood and inspired by the iconic NOW That’s What I Call Music compilation albums, the show will feature songs by Whitney Houston, Wham! Blondie, Tears For Fears, Spandau Ballet and many more.

It’s Birmingham, 1989. Two school friends, Gemma and April, are busy with very important business – planning their lives based on Number One Magazine quizzes and dreaming of snogging Rick Astley. Cut to Birmingham 2009 and it’s the most dreaded event of their lives– the school reunion. Drama, old flames and receding hairlines come together as friends reunite and everything from the past starts to slot into place. The biggest question is: what was with all that hairspray?
