CLOSED 2 JULY 2017

The international smash-hit musical THE BODYGUARD must close Sunday 2 July!

Based on the Warner Bros. movie which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, THE BODYGUARD has been hailed as ‘LONDON’S BEST MUSICAL’ by UKs Magic FM, And ‘THE HOTTEST TICKET IN TOWN’ by The Sunday Mirror.

This is the story you know – with the songs you love! Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge – what they don’t expect is to fall in love. 

Bursting with all your favourite hits including Run to You, I Have Nothing, Greatest Love Of All, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and one of the greatest songs of all time – I Will Always Love You

Starring Australia’s own Paulini, Kip Gamblin and Prinnie Stevens, THE BODYGUARD is a worldwide live theatre phenomenon you won’t want to miss!
