Fat Friends - The Musical

The “weight” is over! A star-studded Fat Friends – The Musical is back. Bigger and better than ever!

Following the massive success of its first outing, Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends returns starring Lee Mead (Holby, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Sherrie Hewson (Coronation Street, Benidorm), Jessica Ellis (Hollyoaks), Angela Lonsdale (Coronation Street, The Syndicate) and direct from his acclaimed West End run in Hairspray, Les Dennis (Legally Blonde, Extras, Coronation Street).

Based on the highly popular ITV series, with great new music from Nick Lloyd Webber, this hugely entertaining musical reunites our favourite foodie friends as they are put through their Zumba paces at their local slimming club, whilst Kelly fantasises about fitting into the wedding dress of her dreams

Serving up the tasty treat of a feel-good night out for everybody, Fat Friends – The Musical is full of fun and a huge hit!
