Michael Ball stars in the Musical

This one-off has the musical with Michael Ball. From 2006 the Royal Theatre was part of the Royal & Derngate. In 2013 an Errol Flynn Filmhouse opened there on 20 June, his birthday! In 2016 the BBC said, “This award-winning arts complex has a reputation for adventurous commissioning which few British theatres can match.” Praise indeed!
