Take That themed musical ‘The Band’ takings top £10m before show even opens

Take That hit-based musical ‘The Band’, has already sold £10 million worth of tickets, three months before the show opens in the UK.

The show is about five teenage girls, the women they become, and the boyband they follow for 25 years.

The show was written by the award-winning stage and movie writer, Tim Firth, and is being produced by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, along with the original line-up of the famous British boyband, Take That: Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, and Robbie Williams.

Nick Carsberg, A.J Bentley, Curtis T. Johns, Yazdan Qafouri and Sario Watanabe-Solomon, who all appeared on the Take That ‘Let It Shine’ BBC programme as the group Five to Five, will all play the lads known as The Band.

The group’s grown up followers will be played by Rachel Lumberg, Alison Fitzjohn, Emily Joyce and Jayne McKenna, while Faye Christall and Rachelle Diedericks will play two of the fans when they were schoolgirls.

The Band musical will tour at 20 venues as part of its 40-week tour, which kicks off at the Manchester Opera House later this year in the UK on September 8.
