Brand new musical An Officer and a Gentleman is coming to Ipswich’s Regent Theatre as part of its world premiere tour.
An Officer and a Gentleman is based on the Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere and its feel-good soundtrack includes the hit song “Up Where We Belong” along with many 80s classic anthems including “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”, “Material Girl”, “Don’t Cry Out Loud” and “Alone”.
The musical, from Jamie Wilson and Curve, rolls into Ipswich from 27thAugust to 1st September 2018 for six evening shows and two matinees.
The story (in case you’ve forgotten): Zack Mayo is in training to become a US Navy pilot. When he rolls into boot camp with a bit too much of a swagger, drill Sergeant Foley doesn’t make life easy for him. When he falls for local girl Paula Pokrifki and tragedy befalls his friend and fellow candidate, Zack realises the importance of love and friendship and finds the courage to be himself and win the heart of the woman he loves. It’s only then he can truly become an Officer and a Gentleman.
This inspiring, breathtakingly romantic musical celebrates triumph over adversity. Let love lift you up where you belong!
