I Should Be So Lucky isn’t just about the music—it’s about family, friendship, and being there when it matters most.

Dive deep into a heartwarming and rib-tickling tale of Ella and Nathan – a star-crossed couple with wedding jitters and tropical dreams. Will their love sail smoothly, or are stormy break-ups ahead? Only time and tunes will tell.

With ten Number 1 singles and over thirty era-defining songs from the Hit Factory, immerse yourself in a sun-kissed adventure filled with feel-good vibes and iconic pop classics. Directed by stage and screen legend Debbie Isitt, who is famous writer and director of the Nativity film series, and choreographed by Jason Gilkison (Creative Director for Strictly Come Dancing), this musical promises to be a whirlwind of joy and nostalgia.


Pete Waterman says so

Pete Waterman, one of the founding members of SAW, has given his seal of approval to this new musical. According to Pete, the show is a much-needed dose of uplift in today’s world. Audiences can expect to lose themselves in two hours of fun and walk away feeling uplifted and rejuvenated.

Pete said: “For 2 hours you will lose yourselves in fun and walk away feeling a lot better than when you walked in!

“I hope audiences have fun with this show. This musical couldn’t have been timed better. We’re currently in a world that’s all over the place, I mean, we just need a bit of uplift as we’ve got enough grief.”
